One of the best
and worst parts of camp is no showers! But every once in a while
you might want to clean up with your own hand made soap.
- Loofa sponge
- Block glycerin
- Glass measuring
- Plastic wrap
- Tall drinking
- Dampen the loof
sponge in water then squeeze out excess. Cutting across
the loofa, use scissors to divide into three pieces.
- Cut 3 large squares
of plastic wrap. Set one piece of the loofa upright on
the center of a piece of plastic wrap then wrap the sides
of the sponge, leaving the top open. Repeat with remaining
pieces. It is important that the plastic wrap not have
any seams or openings in the bottom area. Push wrapped
sponge into tumbler.
- Use knife to cut
glycerin soap into small pieces about the size of small
ice cubes. Place these pieces inside the measuring cup
then microwave them at 15 second intervals, occasionally
stirring the melting soap pieces with a large craft stick.
DO NOT let the soap
come to a boil. Once the soap has melted, pour it into
the glass over the loofa sponge.
the soap set in the tumbler overnight. Or, place it
in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
PUT SOAP IN THE FREEZER
- When the soap has
set, remove the loofa from the tumbler then remove the
clear plastic wrap. Use a knife to cut into slices.
