How cool do these look?
I used exactly the same recipe and technique as my first foray into soap making except just before it was ready to pour into the mould I added one teaspoon of cinnamon and three 15mil tablespoons of ground rolled oats and mixed them in with a few whizzes of the stick blender. The cinnamon produced the wonderful colour and the rolled oats are supposed to act as a mild scrubbing agent that helps exfoliate dry skin. I figure it will be perfect for my gardener’s hands.
I used a bit of poly pipe with a cap at one end as the mould. Maus bought the cap at the local hardware shop. (They gave her the bit of pipe.) I lined both with baking paper.
Once I had poured the soap into the pipe, I sealed it with plastic wrap and an elastic band. I then wrapped it up in a couple of towels.
It was pretty easy to get the soap out of the pipe. I just took the cap off and pushed the soap with a pusher (which Maus made) until it started moving.
