Step away from the disappointment of commercial soaps and dive into making your exceptional, homemade lemon soap. Welcome to a world where your laundry woes are solved with a delightful, natural solution!
What You Need for Lemon Soap:
- 4 cups of Cold Water
- 2 Glycerin Soap Bars
- 3.5 fl oz of Alcohol
- 10 tbsp of Sugar
- 6 tbsp of Powdered Soap
- Zest of 3 Lemons (grated)
- 3.5 fl oz of Alcohol Vinegar
Soap Crafting Steps:
Begin by heating 4 cups of water. Add the grated lemon zest, allowing it to simmer for 5 minutes to release its aromatic essence.
While the water is infused with lemon, grate the glycerin soap bars to expedite melting. Once the zest has sufficiently steeped, remove it and reduce the heat. Gradually add the grated soap to the water, stirring consistently until it dissolves. Incorporate the powdered soap into the mixture, continuing to stir.
After the powdered soap dissolves, blend in 10 tablespoons of sugar. Then, mix in the alcohol and vinegar. If you wish, add a bit of dye (yellow or green) to match the lemon theme.
Turn off the heat and carefully pour the soap blend into molds or any container you prefer. Let it cool and set for at least 6 hours. Once solidified, cut and shape the soap as you like. A Little Patience Goes a Long Way!
Allow your lemon soap to rest for around 5 days before use. This curing time maximizes its benefits.
There you have it! Your own handcrafted lemon soap. Not only is it gentle on your skin, but it also leaves your clothes fresh and vibrantly clean. It’s suitable for all types of fabrics, ensuring your laundry looks and smells fabulous. Revel in the satisfaction of homemade soap making!
