I posted recently about one way to use up your soap scraps instead of letting them go to waste. That method requires that you have some good-sized pieces for cutting out geometric shapes.
But what if you don’t have that? If you’re like a lot of soapmakers, you may have a collection of little shavings left over from beveling the corners of your soap bars. Or maybe you have some of those skinny little bars that are always leftover at the end of a soap log.
Turn those scraps into fun bars of confetti soap!
Just gather up your leftovers.
Next shred them up. If you already have the shreds from beveling, you’re ahead of the game!
Now drop the shreds into a new batch of soap. How much to add is really up to you.
When sliced, the bars look like they have little bits of confetti floating in them!
This technique works with so many different color combinations and designs. Even little chunks of soap instead of shreds! Here are some other really cute examples.
