The weather has been muggy again but there was a nice breeze to be had if you were out doors. I was indoors today making remilled soap and soap balls. Remilled soap is a good way to use up those bits of soap in the bathroom that no one seems to finish.
I used grated up soap to make the soap balls. First you have to grate up your soap, then add hot water to your grated mixture. Not much water or you'll have soap bubbles. Just enough water to help form the mixture into balls. You can add scented essential oil of your liking, I used Rose and olive oil too, and if you like, rolled oats. I just added essential oil to the balls I made. I had dried rose petals, mint, calenduals, and chamomile flowers from a while back, I cut them up fine and rolled the ball into the mixture. You can press a ribbon into the soap ball and tie it up with a bow so you can hang it from your bath tap later. I left mine plain and set them on a rack to dry and cure.
I've done remilled soap before and talk about the process here
For this batch of soap I added the same dried flower mixture but adding dried lavender I had as well and set them on a rack with the soap balls to dry and cure.
These will take a couple of weeks to cure. If you are remilling lye soap it'd need longer again to cure. I think they will look pretty sitting in a soap dish and nicer again to use. Remilled soap is really very simple and a good useful frugal way to use up bits of soap you'd probably throw out. These would also make nice presents too.
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever they are.
