The other day I took my kids to a farmers market in town. Our friends were selling soap that they made from the milk they get from their goats. They sold little cubes of it with instructions to microwave it for 30 seconds for some “clean fun” with kids. The little cube of soap grew into this huge cloud of fluffy soap. My kids loved it, and wanted to do it again and again.
Ivory soap has air bubbles in it so it is said to work best. Cut the soap into smaller pieces, put on a paper towel and microwave on high for 30-45 seconds. Watch the soap grow and jump out in snake like sections. You can still use it as soap if you wanted, but it becomes a crumbly mess so once the kids were done playing with it, I tossed it in the trash.
Or thanks to the tip from one of our readers, you can them chop the soap up or grate it and use it to make Homemade Laundry Detergent. Making fun with NO WASTE!
