Easy Crisco Soap Recipe - Cold Process
3 lbs. Crisco (1 can)
6 oz. lye
12 oz. water
Melt/heat the Crisco in a enamel pan and place on stove to
melt and heat.
Place cold water in a glass bowl and slowly add lye while
stirring with a wooden. Stir until water is clear if you can.
When the Crisco and lye are warm to the touch, pour lye into
Crisco while stirring. Keep stirring until you get trace.
Trace is when it thickens to the point where you can drop
some of the mix back in to itself and it leaves a trail. At
this point use any herbs, scent, or coloring and stir and
pour mold(s). This recipe fits nicely in an 8x8 inch container,
but other containers, such as pringles cans or specialty soap
molds work just fine, too.
Put molds in a warm, insulated place, let set 24 hours and
then cut. Place on to rack and let cure for 2-3 weeks.
