Melt and pour soap making for beginners

Melt and pour soap making is a fun, inexpensive, easy way to get started making soap. Some people move on from melt and pour to cold process soap making , but many are just fine with the ease and safety of melt and pour soap making.

How to Make Melt-And-Pour Soaps

To make melt-and pour soap, you begin with soap base from a craft store. Simply cut off the amount of soap base you need, chop it into cubes, and melt them in the microwave. Melt-and-pour soap is naturally translucent, so you can easily create a clear bar of soap. Using a knife, cut 1 pound of melt-and-pour soap base into 1-inch cubes or smaller, place them in a microwave-safe bowl, and cover. You can usually buy it precolored, as well. You can easily break it off with your hands. Continue melting your soap in second intervals, stirring in between each time, until your soap base is completely melted.

Soapmaking Fragrance

Long before I was a soapmaker, I turned up my nose at melt and pour soaps. The art of choosing colors, shapes, scents, and conditioners is a lot more time consuming than bringing a batch of homemade soap to trace. Now I know better. Melt and pour soap is a great place to learn the art of soapmaking, and without having to deal with the safety gear and fumes associated with lye. The first step to making melt and pour soap is choosing a base. There are a lot of options out there, especially as easy handmade crafts are becoming more commonplace in home kitchens. This helps the soap melt evenly and quickly.
