How to Make Clear Glycerin Soap


  • Cut the glycerin soap base into small pieces with your knife to encourage melting. Fill the pot half full with tap water. Place the pot on the stove. Bring the water to around 150 to 170 degrees F.
  • Place the chopped soap base into your Pyrex cup, then put the entire cup into the simmering water. Make sure that the top of the cup is above the surface of the simmering water so that water will not enter the cup. Permit the base to gradually melt while you use a metal spoon to stir it gently but infrequently. Constant or brisk stirring will introduce air bubbles that will lower the quality of your glycerin soap.
  • Put on your oven mitts and remove the measuring cup from the water when your soap base is nearly liquid. Place the cup on a counter or a table. Remove your oven mitts and continue to gently stir with a metal spoon until the base is completely melted. Add your coloring/dye and oil(s) one or two drops at a time and stir until you obtain the desired color and fragrance.
  • Fill the soap molds to the top with the melted glycerin soap. Spray a light misting of rubbing alcohol onto the tops of the poured soap. This will discourage air bubbles from forming. Allow the soap in the molds to cool and harden. This usually takes less than an hour. If desired, the filled soap molds can be left out overnight.
  • Invert the soap molds to remove the glycerin bars when the soap has fully set. You can use your soap immediately.
