The other day, I bought supplies to make soap. I was going to give slices of Christmas soap as party favors at our White Elephant Gift Exchange. So I bought the soap, printed directions from Martha, and followed them to the letter!
This was the soap after I popped it out of the pan.
My first thought was to chuck it all in the garbage, but then I remembered those checkered soaps I've seen. So I chopped up the rectangles, put them in the pans, and poured more melted glycerine soap over the chunks.
