Splish splash, look what you can take to your Christmas bath.

Why not whip up some Christmas soap, a DIY from It’s Gravy Baby.

This “recipe” calls for items that you may already have around the  house, plus the process is  easy peasy.

Gather Up:

  • a bar of white soap
  • food coloring
  • water
  • cookie cutters or candy molds

Directions:

  • Grate your bar of soap.  Find your kitchen grater, you need approximately one cup of grated soap.
  • Divide your grated soap into bowls.  One bowl for each color you want.  About 1/4 cup in each bowl to make 4 colors.
  • Add a bit of hot water to each bowl- a little less than a tablespoon per bowl.  Use a spoon or fork to mash it all together until you reach a good consistency and all of the pieces are incorporated.
  • Add a few drops of food colors, mixing until you reach your desired color.
  • Press soap mixture into cookie cutters or molds and freeze.

Line  a baking pan with waxed paper for easy clean up.  You’ll want to freeze them for at least a few hours or overnight.

These are cute stocking stuffers and good clean fun gifts for the little neighbors!
