  2. Cut 2 pounds (32 oz) of soap into 2" squares. Place in a 64 oz microwave safe container and carefully melt.
  3. Remove soap from microwave and add 1 oz (30 ml) of fragrance.
  4. Add 8 Tablespoons Kaolin Clay to soap and stir well.
  5. Add 5 ml or 1 teaspoon of Germaben II and stir.
  6. Pour soap into 5 jars filling about 1/2 full. If any soap remains, divide among the 5 jars.
  7. Repeat above steps with second tray of soap and remaining ingredients.
  8. Once soap has hardened, place lid on jar and package.  Label accordingly.
  9. To Use: Place small amount of water into jar of soap. With a shaving brush, swirl around to make lather.
  10. If you are selling this soap, label according to CPSC label guidelines. This soap meets the FDA's soap exemption guidelines.
