The boys are at scout camp all week so it’s just me and the girls all afternoon while the baby naps. My girls
love watching are obsessed with watching kids craft videos on Youtube. There are so many projects on our to-do list and we decided to give these DIY jelly soap try. The best part was that we already had all of the ingredients! We’ve now made this soap a couple of times and found that by adding an extra packet of unflavored gelatin, that the soap is a bit more sturdy. You can make it with one envelope, but if you have two go ahead and use both! Here is our adaptation.
As with all soap: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN unless being supervised by an adult.
How To Make Soap Gummies (Jelly Soap)
DIY JELLY SOAP
- baking sheet
- measuring cups/spoons
- In a small pan, bring water to a boil. Add salt and give it a stir.
- Empty the packets of unflavored gelatin into a small bowl. Add salt water and stir until gelatin is dissolved.
- Stir in soap.
- Add extra coloring (if desired).
- Pour mixture into a measuring cup with a spout. Spoon off any froth/bubbles.Place soap mold onto a baking sheet.
- Pour mixture into soap molds.
- Refrigerate 2 hours.
- To loosen from a plastic mold simply run a butter knife around the edge of each soap mold and gently pull the jelly soap out. If you use a silicone mold, gently push from behind and pull the jelly out.
How To Use Gummy Soap
They feel like gelatin jigglers and smell amazing! So fun! We live in a warm and humid climate so we store ours in the refrigerator in a closed container. The girls had a lot of fun bringing one of the little soaps into the shower with them every day. It doesn’t last as long as bar soap, and dissolves quickly. If placed in a bathtub with water it will dissolve after a minute or two and turn into bubble bath. They will last 5 days in the refrigerator before drying out.
