Watermelon Handmade Soap
Our handmade soaps contain natural, moisturizing glycerin and pure essential oils, specially selected for their aromatherapeutic properties. Glycerin retains water in the skin, thanks to which the soap not only cleans well, but also perfectly moisturizes. The soaps are very delicate, have a neutral pH value of about 7 and contain a mixture of pure oils, selected for the care of a specific type of skin or body part, or simply to improve well-being and strengthen positive emotions. Besides, they are very practical. The soaps are exceptionally beautiful and wonderfully fragrant - so they will decorate and fill your bathroom with fragrance even when you are not using them!
HOW TO USE? You can use glycerin soaps just like any other, but our bars are definitely more delicate than those found in a traditional drugstore! Rub the soap in wet hands or on your favorite sponge until you get a gentle lather, which you should wash your skin with.

How to make a cleaning paste out of soap?
In the following post, I will show you how to use not only the soap, which for some reason did not work out, but also the soap tips that remain at the very end of the soap bar. Of course, there are many ways to manage such residues, and one of them is to make cleaning paste. And this is what the entry below will be about. Remember: don't throw away… recycle!
Step 1. Preparation of ingredients
How to make a cleaning paste out of soap? First, prepare the ingredients below. The proportions given by me include 1 kg of soap. If you have a different amount, recalculate using the proportion.
- Soap - soap residues or soaps that you want to melt (1 kg)
- Water - tap tap, dissolves soap (1 l)
- Sodium hydroxide - removes excess fat from the paste (60 g)
- Salt - ordinary kitchen salt, removes excess sodium hydroxide from the paste (1 cup)
Step 2. Salting out
In the second step, remove unwanted ingredients from the soap mass. It is known that hand-made natural soaps contain an excess of fats, which are designed to take care of our skin. To make a household paste, this excess must be removed. Otherwise, the paste will grease the surface you want to clean. Use sodium hydroxide for this. Then, with the help of salt, remove excess sodium hydroxide so that the paste is not corrosive. Only the paste prepared in this way can be used.
STAGE I. Getting rid of excess fat
If you make soaps with 10% oiliness, 60 g of sodium hydroxide is enough for 1 kg of soap. This value is given with an allowance, thanks to which you will get rid of all unsaponified fats. You will remove excess hydroxide in step II.
STAGE II. Getting rid of excess sodium hydroxide
Your toothpaste no longer has excess fat in it. Now it's time to remove the excess sodium hydroxide. Use salt for this. During the reaction, any impurities in the soap mass will go into the water.
How to make a cleaning paste out of soap? As you can see, its execution is neither compiled nor expensive. And most importantly, you give a second life to soaps and scraps that usually end up in the bin. Put the still warm paste into a jar. On the next day, the paste will harden and lighten a bit. The ready paste is perfect for cleaning the bathroom, kitchen or for sticking dirty clothes. I will be very pleased if, after making the paste, you can show it in the commentary to the post. Good luck!
