Cucumber Soap

This….

…is a very bad sign. That’s my week old soap clinging to my knife. Hovering above the ping-pong table, like, a foot. Cookie dough soap. And not the cookie smelling kind. The cookie FEELING kind.

Watch this…

Oh, that’s not good. Maybe after two minutes in the pringles can, but a week?

Here’s where I think the problem started:


I tried to add cucumber to my soap. The recipes said that you had to cook it. It fizzed a lot. And cucumber is really watery.

Um, I think I’ll let it cure for 6….YEARS, or so.

That or it will become laundry detergent.

Of course, as TL pointed out, I might soon hear, “Honey, there’s cucumber in my shirt pockets.”

Next time you want to add cucumber, seed and grind it in finely in the food processor or food mill and strain it through cheese cloth. Use the juice as some of your liquid in your recipe such as replacing goat milk. You can add some of the veggie if you want be be careful it can discolor as it cures, especially if the cuke isn’t ground fine enough.

Ha! I haven’t made cucumber soap yet. I do have some soaps I won’t sell, they seem like dough too!!! 🙂
