Soaping on the road! While DH (dear husband) packed the camper, I was secretly packing a special box too - everything I needed to complete this months Soap Challenge Club. I was pretty sure that DH would think I needed a break from soap, too, but I thought it the perfect way to unwind - to make one itty batch of soap and not see the to-do list taunting me on the wall.
I had fun at the campsite creating my combing tool and mixing colors. I wanted a blue, a blue tint (blue mixed with white) and white for high contrast. Campsite soaping is casual - I did no measuring when it came time to mix the colors - that means I won't be able to duplicate them. I've gotten kinda crazy about documenting colors so I can duplicate or understand how much I need to add to 20% of the recipe etc. No measuring spoons meant foot loose and fancy free.
Here I am (quickly!) filling the squirt bottles. Notice my high tech mold (cardboard box) - nobody said campsite soaping was pretty!
In the end, the soap will be two bars across. After the cardboard dividers are removed and set up in the mold, I'll cut the soap in the middle of the white.
Here is the post swirlie, pre-cut look. It's "ok", but cutting it into the bars is when the marble look really comes out! I'll be trying it again in my indoor space, but this sure was fun! These soap challenges are so fun and a great way to break away from the backlog and have some fun!
