We Made Soap!!

At the weekend, Andrea showed me how to make a Bar Of Soap!! First we had to heat up some water in a saucepan

Then we got a couple of "Almost Finished" bars of soap from the bathroom and cut them into bits. We also got out a plastic Gadget that Andrea said was Very Important.

When the water was simmery, Andrea turned off the heat and put the soap bits in the water.

We then put a plate on top to keep the heat in, and left it alone for ten minutes.

After that, we poured the water out and put the softened soap bits inside the Plastic Gadget!
We had to squish it all down a bit!

Then we put the lid on and Andrea said I had to jump on it to squish everything down!!!
That was fun but a lot of hard work! (Even Andrea had a go at squishing!!)

Then we took the ends off, and saw that the soap had all squashed together!!

We have a new Bar of Soap!!


  1. Maybe you could make some soap into a mouse shape?

  2. That is a fun thing to do, making new soap from old soap! Do you call that recycle soap ;-)?

  3. No - it's ReSoaple!!!!! HAHAHAHAHaaaaaa!!
