My Shampoo Bars for puppies


2 oz  Lye Crystals
5 oz ice cold distilled water
16 oz  Shortening

A non-detergent soap designed especially for sensitive puppy skin.; No detergents, dyes or fragrance to irritate skin. Lard (food grade),  Sodium Hydroxide (lye) with Retained Glycerin, Water (aqua),

Prepare a box made from cardboard, plastic, wood or glass and line it with plastic wrap or waxed paper. This will become your soap mold.
  • Melt the fats in a pan. Stir a little to make sure itís all melted entirely. Remove it from the heat and allow it to cool a little.
  • When itís cooled to around 130į F (54C) begin to stir it.
  • Ware your eye protection and gloves to slowly pour the water into a mixing bowl and carefully add the lye into the water, stirring constantly.
  • Continue stirring until the lye has dissolved. Cover with a light cloth and leave to cool to around 130į F (54C).
  • Pour the lye/water mixture into the oils in a thin stream. The key to a good soap mixture it constant, slow stirring.
  • When youíve poured all the lye into the fats, you should find that the soap starts to thicken. Trickle some of the mixture off the back of a spoon, this should leave a trace line (commonly referred to as the Ďtrace stageí)
  • Add any optional coloring and essential oils and stir. Pour your homemade lye soap into a plastic-lined box or mold. Cover the top with a lid or card, then wrap it in a towel and allow it to set for a couple of hours in a nice warm area. The soap should still be soft enough to cut into bars with a table knife. Donít use anything that will be sharp enough to cut through the plastic lining and continue to handle with gloves for the first 48 hours.
  • Once youíve cut your bars, leave the soap to set for a further week before you remove it from the mold. You will then need to leave your soap in a dry placed to cure for around a month before itís ready for use.
