- 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.
- For Ribbons: Heat 2 oz. of Ultra White soap in microwave until it has melted. Add 2 teaspoons of liquid glycerin and stir. This will make soap supple enough to bend into a ribbon.
- Add about 1 teaspoon of Sexy Pink Slippers Mica Powder and mix in well. More color can be added if a darker shade is desired.
- Pour a thin layer of pink soap into the bottom of the Guest Loaf Silicone Mold. Spritz soap with alcohol once poured.
- Once soap has hardened, about 10-15 minutes, carefully remove soap from mold. Decide how wide to make the ribbons. Ours are about 1/4" wide. Using a soap cutter or dull knife, cut long strips of pink soap.
- Carefully, bend strips into a ribbon shape. Trim the ends so they will fit into the mold.
- Place 4 oz. of Crystal Clear soap in a glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until completely melted.
- Depending on how wide the ribbons are, you may need to pour more pink soap into the guest loaf to make more ribbons. (If making kit, there are enough supplies to make 8 bars.)
- Immediately pour a thin layer of clear soap into the bottom of the each oval cavity - just enough to cover the bottom. Spritz with alcohol.
- While soap is hardening, use some of the melted clear soap as a "glue" to hold the ribbon together. Place a small amount of melted soap on one side of the ribbon, then place the other side on top and hold until it has set up. Repeat until all ribbons are done in this way.
- To the clear soap that was previously melted, add another 4 oz. of Crystal Clear soap and melt in microwave. Do not heat soap too hot.
- Check temperature of soap before pouring. If soap is hotter than 125°, it will melt the pink ribbons.
- Working on one cavity at a time, spritz soap previously poured generously with alcohol, then pour another thin layer of soap over this.
- Spritz a pink ribbon on both sides with alcohol and place down into the melted clear soap, positioning so it is straight. Continue to pour more clear soap over this until the ribbon is completely covered in clear soap. Spritz again.
- Continue in this manner until all 4 soap cavities are finished. Be very sure to spritz well when pouring each layer of soap so they will stick together once unmolded.
- Melt about 10 oz. of Ultra White soap base in microwave. Soap temperature should be at or below 125° when pouring.
- Once clear soap has completely hardened, spritz tops of soap well with alcohol. Carefully pour the white soap into the remaining area of each cavity. Spritz again with alcohol and allow soaps to harden.
- NOTE: Do not place the mold into the refrigerator to speed up the process. This can cause the Crystal Clear soap to cloud.
- When soap has completely set up, carefully remove soap from molds. Immediately wrap soaps in clear plastic wrap.
- Soap can then be packaged in organza bags, window soap boxes or any clear type of packing so the soaps can be seen.
- Add a label or tag for your fundraising group.
- If making the kit that is available for this recipe, repeat above steps to make another 4 ribbon soaps.
