Grease Monkey Melt & Pour Soap
I love grease monkey soaps. I really like to get into my gardening or other messy jobs. I then have some serious clean up. A grease monkey soap does the job perfectly. I have an overwhelming stash of melt and pour soap and I wondered if I could make a melt and pour grease monkey soap. So I headed to the kitchen for some testing.
Here is the equipment you will need for this recipe.
Here are the ingredients you will need for this recipe.
Here is the recipe in ounces.
Gently melt the soap until liquid. Once liquid add the Ground Vanilla Bean Specks. Allow the soap to cool until more viscous. Add the pumice and stir well. Pour the viscous soap into mold and allow to cool. Remove from mold and use.
In my first test, I only added .22 oz of Pumice. My soap was also very hot. My pumice sank to the bottom of my mold (the top of my soap), then cooled. I wanted a soap that had pumice through out the bar and as I looked at my bar, I decided I wanted more pumice. I multiplied my pumice by three and I allowed my soap to cool more before adding my pumice and pouring. Down at the bottom you can see the comparison of these soaps. The one on the right is the desired soap. I grabbed a bar and gave my hands a good scrub down to test. It worked great! So simple to make and exactly what the mechanic ordered.
