- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron and workspace.
- Remove 2 lb. of Extra Clear Soap from plastic tray. Cut off 1/4 or one rectangle block from 2 lb. tray. This block should weigh about 8 ounces.
- Cut up into small chunks and place into a small glass measuring cup. Add 1 cube of the Neon Orange You Glad Soap Color Bar that has been cut up into 4 pieces for ease in melting.
- Place cup in microwave and heat soap/color bar until completely melted.
- Remove from microwave and stir to completely blend in the color. Using a plastic dropper, add 5 mL (1 tsp.) of Market Peach Fragrance Oil and blend into colored soap.
- Pour soap into 2 of the soap pop cavities. Spritz top of soap with rubbing alcohol to release any surface bubbles. Let soap completely harden.
- To remove soap, gently pull soap away from the sides of the mold. Push from the bottom until the soap is out far enough to pull completely out of the mold.
- Using a soap cutter, cut the orange soap into small chunks and place in a bowl for later.
- Weigh 18 oz. of Ultra White Soap and cut up into chunks. Place in a large glass measuring cup.
- Cut the remaining orange soap color cube into 4 pieces. Take 1 piece and cut that in half. Add that small piece to the cut up white soap.
- Place glass measuring cup into microwave and heat until the soap and color have melted.
- Stir soap to blend color in. Soap should be a pale peach color.
- Add 0.54 oz. of fragrance oil and stir to incorporate.
- Take the bowl of orange soap chunks and spritz the chunks well with alcohol. Turn the pieces over in the bowl to be sure they are well coated. Divide the chunks and place into the 6 piles that will be added to the soap cavities.
- Check the temperature of the soap with a digital thermometer; wait until the soap cools down to 125°F.
- In the first soap cavity, pour soap to fill about 1/3 of the cavity. Place 2-3 orange soap pieces into the melted soap, spritz with alcohol. Pour more melted soap, add 2-3 more orange soap chunks and spritz. If any orange piece remain, add those and finish with melted peach soap. Spritz top with alcohol.
- Continue in this manner with each soap cavity. Pouring these soap bars in layers disperses them more evenly thoughout the soap.
- When all 6 soap cavities have been filled, place silicone top over the soap and place a popsicle stick through the slot and down into the soap. Some of the orange embeds may need to be moved around a bit so the stick will go into the soap.
- Let the soap completely harden before unmolding.
- Remove lid from mold. To unmold, gently pull the sides away from the soap, then push carefully from the bottom, easing the soap out with your hands. DO NOT PULL SOAP OUT BY THE STICK.
- To package, place the soap pop into a clear poly bag and tie with orange curling ribbon.
- Label product accordingly.
