Olive Oil Felting Soap Recipe
- 1 cup pure olive oil soap grated, chopped or cut into thin shards with a sharp knife
- 1 quart boiling water
Pour boiling water over soap bits to cover, stir or whisk gently every few hours until soap dissolves. Store the slimy, syrup-like solution in a jar for up to 3 to 4 weeks taking small amounts from the jar to make a soapy water for felting. You want the soapy felting water to feel slippery so test as you add the solution to know when you've added enough.
