White Melt and Pour
Loaf or Tray Mold
Soap Scraps (Ours are from the Soapy Plaid Project)
Microwave Safe Bowl (Pyrex)
Rubbing Alcohol in a Spritzer Bottle
Step 1: Melt just enough white melt and pour soap to fill your mold about half way full.
Hint: If your soap scraps are fresh and strongly scented you may not need to add any additional fragrance to your melted soap. However, if your scraps are a little older or lightly scented then you can add more fragrance now.
Step 2: Make sure your soap is no hotter than 120 degrees (if the soap is any hotter it will melt your embedding pieces). Pour the soap into your loaf or tray mold and spritz with rubbing alcohol to eliminate any bubbles.
Step 3: Grab your soap scraps and generously spritz them with alcohol (they should look wet all over). Once they have had a good dousing, sprinkle them into the melted white soap. Spritz the top of the soap again with rubbing alcohol.
Hint: You can flatten the embeds down into the soap so they are fully submerged or leave some poking out the top for a different look.
Optional: If needed, you can melt and pour some additional white soap and fill your mold the rest of the way up. If your mold is completely full after adding your scraps then you are done. Let cool completely.
Step 5: Once the soap is cooled and hardened you can release the soap from the mold and cut into bars. Cutting the soap will reveal all the hidden chunks inside!
Hint: Again, you can trim all the sides of your soap for a nice clean look, or leave the top of the soap with a few embeds sticking out for a more fun, textured bar.

Kat, That is HYSTERICAL! What a funny but diabolical husband you have. Yes, you’re right – the huge block of cheese is definitely my sweet hubby’s way of showing me he loves me =)
That soap looks like yummy peppermint bark that only gets made at Christmas… Yum.

Scrap soap sometimes makes the best looking soaps.
by the looks of that cheese,
it sounds like Chris misses you and wants you back home pronto…..
is that a taunt?
That’s nacho cheese!”
“Hey! Who moved my cheese?” (a book)
“Look! This is my cheese…
don’t you dare touch!!!”
or, more likely
“Honey, I miss you so much!
Look, I got you your favorite
cheese, and, what’s more, I will
make you an omelette with it as soon as you get back home…!”
My husband ordered me two weeks
ago to get him a block of sharp
cheddar…just for him. Right. what happened to 50/50 or community property?
No more girly girly grated.
Just a big ol block of cuttin cheese.
Then the way he kept me away from it was to do what I hate most:
Get in there with hands,
tear open the container, or cut it
BELOW the cutting line….
lay it on counter
(my cat likes to walk on that counter)
pick it up coyly
handle it on every sqare centimeter of surface area with
doubtfully, questionable unclean hands,
defyingly (is that a word?)
glance at me sideway
then offer me some
No, Thank you!!!!!
i aced microbiology and i know
what is on THAT cheese…
then he consumes some
puts it back in fridge on top shelf
and LEAVEs IT OPEN!!! ARGH!!!!
