Summer Is Looking Fresh With DIY Watermelon Soap

Diply 29 Jun 2018

In case you're completely clueless, people really love watermelon.

Chop one up for a barbecue and they'll eat the whole thing. Kids will eat slice after slice of watermelon goodness, and if you incorporate watermelon into a recipe, you're an instant genius.

They don't even need to taste it! People even love how watermelons look and are always using them in DIY projects.

And we're about to take it one step further. Have you ever used watermelon to clean yourself?

It's watermelon, it's soap, and it's adorable.

We'll begin with the clear soap.

Cut it up into smaller chunks and get ready to put it in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds on high, and then microwave in 10-second chunks, stirring between each until the soap is fully melted.

Then we add the pink soap dye and stir.

Doesn't it look gorgeous? We put in enough soap dye to get a nice, vibrant pink, but you can do more or less depending on the shade you want.

Add your black sesame seeds in, mix it up, and then pour the soap into your silicone mold.

You could even do this with a silicone muffin baking sheet since that's the shape we're going for.

Fill the cups to the 3/4 mark, and then spray with the alcohol solution.

We're going to use this spray with each step because it helps remove the bubbles from your setting soap.

Then, put the soap aside to cool until it's solid again.

Cut up and melt the white soap just like you melted the clear soap.

Next, pour it right on top of the hardened pink soap, adding just a 1/4 inch layer of white. Then, spray the soap with the alcohol solution and set it aside to cool again.

We're going to dye the rest of the white soap with the green soap dye — and add a special effect.

Add enough dye to get to the color you want, mix it up, and pour another 1/4 inch layer on top of the white soap.

After you pour the green soap into each cup, add an extra drop of green soap dye and gently swirl it with a popsicle stick.

These darker swirls of color will make the green look more like watermelon rind.

Do one last spray with the alcohol solution and set it aside.

Let the soap become completely solid, and then remove it from the mold.

You can cut it into slices or just enjoy it round. Either way, it's undeniably cute.
