How to Use Leftover Soap Scraps
After you have made some soap and you have had leftovers (could be a bar that did not turn out the way you liked or something like that) and you do not like to see it go to waste. Well good news you can reuse or what is called rebatching. Rebatched soap involves melting soap with a bit of liquid like distilled water. What is unique about this technique is that it gives your soap a rustic look
without having to handle lye. If you are interested in this technique, I would suggest reading The Soap Queen's post on How to Use Leftover Soap Scraps.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
