Cost: under $10
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup liquid hand soap
- soap coloring
- soap mold silicone works best
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.
Store in a container in the refrigerator. They will last 3-5 days.
If you use colored soap, you don't need to add soap coloring. Our soap was already pink in color and watermelon scented.
