STEP 1:

Gather all your materials. You’ll need just soap bits, a plastic bottle, a grater, a cutting tool, and a pan for melting.

STEP 2:

Cut the bottom off of the plastic bottle to create a mold for your new soap bar. If you have a lot of soap saved up, you may need several bottles to use as molds. You can also choose to use large sized ice cube molds, or other fun-shaped molds if you have them.

STEP 3:

Next grate your bits of soap. When the pieces get very small, you can use the exacto knife, other cutting tool, to cut up the remaining bit into chunks.

STEP 4:

As an added touch, you can choose to separate the colors of the grated soap, so that you can make colored layered in your new bar.
