Cold Process Lye Soap

Posted by Homemade Glycerin Soap on January 2, 2011 at 7:58 PM Comments comments (0)

As you can see from our site, we only create homemade glycerin soap for sale, but we thought you might like to know how to make lye soap. This is a simple process, but please remember to use lye carefully!!


Many people use lye when trying to make homemade soap.The following is a simple homemade soap making recipe which you can try at home and make a stock of handmade soaps for yourself, your friends and/or your family. We choose to use olive oil because it makes a very hard soap and will last longer.

CAUTION: Lye is very irritating to the skin and can do severe damage to eyes and throats. Use extreme caution when using lye, always keeping it awayfrom children. You should use rubber gloves and safety glasses when using lye.Follow the directions on the back of the lye box on how to handle lye. RedDevil is a popular brand of lye.

 

The following is what you will need to make homemade soap:

Distilled water - 12 ounces –important that it be distilled

6 ¾ cups of olive oil- heat until warm to the touch

Lye - 6 ounces-Make sure it says "100% Lye" on the container.

Container - 8 × 8 inches or big enough to hold 12 cups.


Step #1: In a glass bowl, take the cold distilled water and add the lyeto the water slowly. ALWAYS ADD LYE TO COLD WATER – NEVER THE OTHER WAY AROUND.Keep stirring continuously with a wooden spoon till the mix is almost clear. The container which holds the lye water will get warm.

 

Step #2: In another glass bowl take the warmed olive oil and add theabove mix of lye and distilled water to it. Do this slowly and keep stirring. Make sure that both the liquids are warm to touch.

 

Step #3: First the soap will be murky, then creamy, then like heavy cream and finally, like thick gravey. This process can take from 10 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the temperature in your home, the weather and humidity and your ingredients. Stir vigorously but patiently! Don’t use a hand blender – it may cause splatters not only making amess, but potentially irritating your skin or damaging your eyes if any of themixture lands there. (No fun creating handmade soaps if you get hurt!)  After the above solution starts to thicken, you can experiment with different additives and add scents, oils or herbs to the mix. Stir them in to your homemade soap.

 

Step #4: The next step is to pour the above solution into a mold orcontainer. Set aside the mold for 24 hours in a warm, draft free place.

 

Step #5:  Unmold your homemade soap.It is advisable to cut your block of soap into bars as soon as possible after unmolding, Cut the above big soap piece into little soap bars and store for 3 weeks in a dry place to cure.  A cookie rackis a good choice because the air can circulate all around the homemade soap. The longer you cure your soap, the less evaporation you will have once you start to usethe soap. After 3 weeks your homemade soaps will be ready to use!
