Treasure soap often sells for $1 a bar in stores, but you can make your own for much less.
Time Required: 15 minutes
- 1. Select a small treasure to place inside your soap--a piece of jewelry, an eraser, a creepy crawly, a kids' meal toy, etc.--and place it inside the soap mold.
- 2. Next, cut the glycerin soap into small cubes, and heat in a microwave-safe container according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
- 3. Pour the melted soap into the mold, and fill to the top. This should completely encase your "treasure."
- 4. Add in a few drops of fragrance oil, if desired.
- 5. Allow the soap to cool and harden for 20-40 minutes.
- 6. Then, pop the finished bar out of the mold, and wrap in cellophane.
- 1. To have your treasure facing the right direction when the soap is finished, place the object face down in the mold.
- 2. Want to keep the treasure a surprise? Then, use colored soap in place of the clear glycerin.
