How to make handmade soap with oat flakes
Soap bars – are one more way to give second life to remnants of soap. We told how to prepare colored soap balls from multicolored soap remnants. From white soap-suds such balls are obtained very insignificant. Having added oat flakes to the white flaked soap, one can make soap bars, which are appropriate for washing of even very sensitive skin.
- Soap remnants – 3.5 oz (100 g)
- Water – 1.05 oz (30 g)
- Glycerin – 0.18 oz (5 g)
- Oat flakes – 1.05 oz (30 g)
We grate soap on a big grater.
We add water and leave it for 15-20 minutes, this time will be enough so that flaked soap would melt and became plastic.
We add glycerin, which will allow avoiding overdrying of skin during washing.
We mix flaked soap well and add oat flakes.
We relay everything into a mould, densely ramming.
From above the soap can be decorated with oat flakes.
If you don’t have a mould, you can roll up balls from a flaked soap with oat flakes.
And decorate them the same way, by rolling in oat flakes.
We lay out the ready soap to dry; when superfluous moisture is gone and it becomes solid, it may be used.
Usually 7-10 days is enough for the soap to dry up and become ready to use.
- If soap bars don’t dry enough, a mould may emerge on them.
