"Melt and pour soap comes in soap blocks, ready to melt and pour into the mold of your choice.
But the exciting element comes once youve melted the soap block. Then...
I enjoy producing soap using the melt and pour soap generating technique. In my knowledge its the easiest way to make your own hand created soap. A good recipe is a need to if youre just starting out, but once youre experienced, you can make up your own recipes and get really creative. How about Double Chocolate Brownie soap?
Melt and pour soap comes in soap blocks, prepared to melt and pour into the mold of your selection.
But the thrilling part comes the moment youve melted the soap block. Then you get to add your personal choice of soap coloring, fragrance and entertaining additives for instance, oatmeal, flower petals or herbs.
The moment thats accomplished, its time to pour it into the molds of your choice. There are some genuinely cute soap molds available. For example, hearts, flowers, seashells, gingerbread men and a lot of other people.
Melt and pour soap only takes a couple of hours to set at space temperature. If you dont want to wait that long, you can place the molds in the refrigerator for about an hour. But by no means spot the molds in the freezer.
When the soap has set in the molds, its time to unmold it. Just turn the mold upside down on a clean soft surface (so the soap doesnt chip if it comes out with a rush) and the soap really should pop out. If youre possessing trouble obtaining the soap out of the mold, run some warm water over the base of the mold and attempt again.
Now your extremely personal hand made soap is prepared to use! It tends to make wonderful gifts to give to your close friends and family, especially if you use cute molds like the ones talked about above. I know my buddies are impressed when I give them gorgeously scented and coloured heart or flower shaped soaps and tell them I made them myself.
So have fun creating your own melt and pour soap. The only problem is, when you start, its difficult to stop! [url=http://homespacreations.com/]make soap[/url]"
