How to Make Homemade Blender Milk Soap

Updated on August 9, 2012

This soap is very easy to make, my grandmother makes it and I got the recipe while on vacation at her house. It makes your skin feel really good, it's great if you have a sensitivity to a lot of processed soaps that you buy in the store, and it's very, very easy to make !

So here's the ingredients;

6 ounces of frozen milk, just put the milk into ice cube trays and freeze.

4 tbsp. lye granules

16 ounces of shortening

First, you want to have your milk pre-measured and frozen. Next, put the frozen milk into a stainless steel bowl. Add the lye granules to the frozen milk. I would recommend wearing gloves during this process, you don't want to get lye on your skin !

Next, using an old wooden spoon gently poke and stir the lye and milk as to prevent hot spots from forming and burning the mixture.

Now you want to melt the shortening until it is just barely melted, do not let it get to hot ! Add the shortening into a blender and add the other (melted) milk/lye mixture on top of the melted shortening. Right away you want to pulse it 5 times, check it and see if it is in the "trace" stage. If not, do it another 2 times. "Trace" simply means thickening. If you want to add any sort of scent to your soap (essential oils, oatmeal, ext.) do it now. If you do add any scents, pulse another couple times just to blend it in.

You want to quickly scoop it out into a (saran wrap) lined bread pan and even out the top. Let it set for 3 days, and then you can cut it. You want to continue to let is "rest" for a month. If you can set it up on end that would work best so the air can surround it.

This is what it'll look like at the "trace" stage.

      Fear Not dear friend All you need to do is srapce it all back into your pot heat it up slowly, they shave the parts that are solid back into the pot with a cheese grater (use gloves for this operation). When you wash the cheese grater make sure to put it through the dishwasher and dip it into vinegar to make sure that you get all of the lye use up . The vinegar step might be over kill, but I would do it anyway, that's just me.Once everything melts, stir it up until it traces well then re mold. I think you didn't quit get a good trace before pouring originally. I have experienced the same thing at times in the past. This recipe might not do well being doubled as I had already doubled it before posting. I usually just make two batches. Thinking back I'm pretty sure the time I had problems was the time I doubled it again too.

      This sounds interesting. I might have to try it, but I'll think I'll use a different blender from the one I use for food.
