Rebatching Soap Directions
Use at least a 6-quart pot and fill halfway with water and bring the water to a boil.
Grate your rebatching soap base while waiting for the water to boil.
Using a hand held cheese grater or a food processor with grating blade is the easiest way to grate the rebatch base.
Once grated, place the gratings into a heavy weight gallon zip lock bag or one of those plastic oven bags, like made for cooking a turkey. If your using an oven bag, make sure to close it securely with a twist tie. If using a zip lock bag, double bag your soap gratings and zip seal each bag.
Place the bag in the pot of boiling water and cover cover with lid, then turn down to medium or low heat, and boil for about 1 hour.
Gather your molds, fragrances, essential oils, colorants and other items you will be using for your rebatch soap while waiting for it to melt down. You will also need to get a small towel to help with kneading of the melted soap base.
.After the hour has passed, and the soap base has melted, remove bag from pot, using a pair of oven mitts and place on a counter covered with the small towel.
Gently knead bag until the rebatch base has an even consistency, kind of like thin mashed potatoes
If you still have a few soap gratings not fully melted, return to pot for another 20 to 30 minutes and then repeat the kneading.
If after the additional time in the pot you still see soap that has not reached the desired consistency, add a couple tablespoons of milk, to each pound of rebatch soap base gratings. Place it back into the pot for 15 to 20 minutes more.
Once you have reached your desired consistency, remove the base from pot and add any of your desired fragrance or coloring to the soap base at this time. Re-close the bag and knead well to distribute all ingredients evenly.
Once that is done, snip off the corner of the bag and pipe into your molds.
Place a layer of plastic wrap or wax paper on top of soap and smooth off the tops if desired.
Let your soaps cool completely then pop them out of molds.
If you have added extra liquid, let your soaps cure for a few days to a few weeks, depending on how much liquid you added, until hardened.
If you want your rebatched soap to float, place the mixture into a glass or stainless steel bowl and whip with a mixer. The whipping will add air to the soap base and tend to make them float. Work quickly so the base does not cool off too much. you will have to spoon the whipped rebatch saop into your molds and press it in by hand.
Please remember that rebatched soap is not going to be as smooth as cold process or melt and pour soap is.
