Tips for Making Butterbeer Soap

The best tip I can give you is to take your time and read the instructions thoroughly.

How to get a smooth mixture from the soap cubes?

Melt soap cubes in 30-second intervals and stir; repeat this process until all the cubes are melted, not chunky.

How to stop bubbles from foaming in your soap?

Before filling your mold with the soap base, spritz it inside with rubbing alcohol to help settle the soap and stop any bubbles from forming, although with this butterbeer soap, it’s also totally ok to embrace the bubbles! It will add a tad to the butterbeer feel – Who doesn’t appreciate a good fizzy drink?

How can you tell if the soap is hardened so you can pour the next level?

The higher up you go with the layers, the more time it will need to dry. You can tell if a layer is hardened by blowing on it and seeing no ripples on its surface.

How do you get the foamy, bubbly look on top?

Use a spatula to create the bubbly look.
