How to Rebatch Soap | Reuse Soap
If you make a lot of soap, you will also collect a lot of off cuts or bars that are not the best in color or scent. So, today I am going to share how to rebatch soap.
This process is great for many reasons. The first being that it is a great way to reuse those small off cuts. If you have a bar that has lost its scent, or has imperfections, this is a great way to start over.
When I rebatch soap I like to separate my off cuts into like colors. This will help to keep the soap a more uniform color. You can always add a colorant to the batch to help if you do not like the color, but it is not always necessary.
You will need the following:
- Soap to rebatch
- Cheese Grater
- Distilled Water
- Slow Cooker or Double Boiler
I start to preheat my slow cooker on low. After I separate my soaps by color, I shred my soap into my slow cooker. Next, I add a few tablespoons of water and give it a mix.
The more water you add, the longer it will take for the soap to harden, so add very little at a time. After everything is nice and mixed, I let it sit for 3-4 hours so that it can start to melt down.
Once I am happy with the consistency, I than add in any colorant or scent that I want to add. Once everything is combined well, it is time to pour into the molds and allow it to harden for 24-48 hours. This time will depending on just how much water you added to your mix.
