The Steps To Make These Soaps Have Been Mentioned Below
The first step involves the basic preparation and taking out the things you need at the beginner’s level. The first thing that you need is a bowl. You need to be sure that the bowl can be used in the microwave as well. You will also need a stirrer to stir the mixture. Once you have taken out the required vessels and accessories we move to the next step.
The second step involves preparing the soap liquid. You will need a couple of soap bars for this. The soap bars need to be placed in the bowl. The bowl needs to be heated so that the soap bars melt well. You can use the microwave for melting the soap bars. The microwave timer can be set according to the hardness and stiffness of the soap bars.
Once the soap bars have melted to stir the liquid. In case you come across any piece or any chunk of the soap which has not melted, you will have to stir the liquid till the chunk melts. So, the third step involves ensuring the fact that all chunks of the soap bar have melted.
If you have used a couple of soap bars in preparation of the soap then you will have to add about two to two and a half table spoons of raspberry oil, raspberry seeds and madder powder to the liquid soap. If you have used more than two soap bars you will increase the quantity of the said items proportionately. Once all the three ingredients have been added to the liquid you will have to stir the mixture well.
The next step involves setting the mixture in an appropriate mould. You will first have to leave the mixture to cool down a bit. You cannot put the extremely hot liquid inside the mould. Leave the liquid for cooling down. In the mean time you can take out the mould and grease it well with butter or oil. This will prevent the liquid from sticking to the mould and easy extraction of the soap from the mould. Once, the liquid is cool you can pour it in the mould and leave it for setting.
After a couple of hours you can check the mould, if the soap has hardened and cooled off well, it means that it is set. It is quite common that in the first few instances we may be confused on the setting of the soap. In such cases you can easily touch and test the soap. If it is cool and hard then it is set. If you are still confused then you can let the soap be in the mould for a little more time till you are sure. As you have greased the mould well, it will not be a tough or a difficult task for you to get the soap out of the mould. Still, you must be careful and take all precautions that the soap bar does not break while being extracted out of the mould.
