Step 2In a glass vessel, microwave 500 grams of the freshly-cut cubes at 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval till the homemade soap solution's melted. Alternatively, use a steel pan on very low heat, or use a double boiler (you can refer to step 1 of this article to find out how to set up a double boiler at home.) You don't want to overheat the soap base, since that will burn it.

Step 4Pour your homemade soap mixture into soap moulds and let it set for a few hours. While it's setting, spray it with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubble formation.
