Supplies 1 large bar of soap - I use Dove beauty bar which is a great product to use in hard water areas and very mild on your skin. - 4 to 5 tablesthingys of ground up oatmeal. - 2 to 3 tablesthingys water - Decorative ropes (if you want to make soap-on-a-rope)
What You Do: Grind up the oatmeal in a food processor, hand chopper or blender until finely milled. You want the mixture to have some substance - don't reduce it to flour - but chop enough to break up most of the individual oat flakes.
Grate the Dove bar into small slivers in large, microwave able bowl. Add a couple of tablesthingys of water and microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes. The time will vary according to your microwave; be careful the soap doesn't bubble over the bowl. Stir mixture once or twice.
If you use scented soap, your kitchen will smell fragrant for hours after you are done!
When the soap has dissolved, remove from the microwave and stir. Add the oatmeal gradually, mixing in with a sthingy, until you are happy with the consistency and the proportion of soap to oatmeal.
