How to make the colored balls from soap remnants
Soap residues can be found in every home, indeed. Some people use them for washing, but others think they are useless and throw them away. But if you collect some remnants of various colors, you can make attractive soap balls that children and adults will love.
- Soap remnants of different colors – 3.5 oz (100 g.)
- Water – 0.5 oz (15 g.)
- Glycerol – 0.18 oz (5 g.)
Grate remnants by means of kitchen grater. You can use remnants from any kind of soap (baby soap, bath soap, etc.). Having a lot of different colors is better.
Pour warm water to the soap chips. Stir, and leave it for 20 minutes. While waiting, the soap will become soft and supple.
Add the glycerin to the soap and stir again. Form the soap balls by your hands. Balls must be very dense, otherwise they will collapse in your hands.
Allow the soap balls to dry.
Place them anywhere for 1-2 weeks, but there should be enough air. (You can let them be covered with a cloth). Afterwards, excess moisture from these soap balls has evaporated and they will become solid.
Put the colored balls to a bar soap and use them just like any ordinary soap.
These soap balls are made of soap remnants which was made “from scratch.”
- Usually, there is no need to add any volatile oils or perfumes to soap ball, since every soap has its own scent.
- White remnants of a cake of soap can also be used to make soap balls, but they are not so beautiful of course.
