Bought some miscellaneous goat's milk soap "seconds." Too rough or awkward in shape to conveniently use, so soaked them in water, along with all the little worn-down slivers of soap that have been lying around because I couldn't bear to toss them. Put all in the blender thinking I could mix it together, spread it out to dry, cut it into bars, and have usable soap. It smells great, but has the texture and consistency of bread dough--including the elasticity! What happened? LOL

Hi Debra,

Next time heat a little water over low heat and add your shavings to "rebatch." Make sure you're grating those little pieces through a cheese grater, etc. Don't overmix or you'll end up with lots of bubbles. The older the soap, the more challenging!
