How to Make Shark Toy Soap Bars

Cut your soap into 1-inch cubes, and place it into the measuring cup.

Heat on high for 30 seconds, remove and stir well. Heat in additional 30-second intervals, stirring between each heat session until the soap is fully melted and there are no clumps.

Add mica to a small dish and add just a little bit of rubbing alcohol to it. Stir until the color is combined.

Add color to the soap base, and stir until the color is solid.

Pour a small amount of soap into each mold cavity.

Place a shark into each mold cavity.

Fill the rest of each mold cavity with the remaining soap base. If you have bubbles, you may spray with rubbing alcohol.

Allow the soap to set for about 2 hours.

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure you have all of your supplies to hand in before starting this process. It is important to help you move to each step.
  • If children are helping, then make sure they are supervised at all times. You will be dealing with a hot soap mixture, which can be dangerous if your children are left alone with it.
  • Make sure you give the soap bars time to set. This will ensure that they form properly and will be able to be used.
  • Don’t overheat the soap mix cubes. Always do 30-second intervals in the microwave and check each time. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does homemade soap last?

Homemade soap can last up to three years if it is stored properly. The key to extending the shelf life of homemade soap is to keep it away from moisture, direct sunlight, and high temperatures.

How do I store homemade soap?

Homemade soap should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. It is best to store the soap in an airtight container to protect it from moisture. The soap should also be kept away from heat sources, as the high heat can melt and degrade the soap’s quality.

Do melt and pour soaps need to cure?

No, melt-and-pour soaps do not need to cure. Melt-and-pour soaps are ready to use when they are set. As opposed to cold-process or hot-process soaps, which require a curing time of several weeks before they are safe for use.
