Our soap jelly recipe is simple and budget-friendly. I already had liquid hand soap, so I just needed to grab the unflavored gelatin, which costs $2.00 at Walmart. Making these soap jellies was a blast, and my granddaughters loved using them to wash their hands – they couldn't get enough of the wiggly, jiggly fun!

An Important Tip

Always place your silicone mold on a cookie tray before pouring the soap mixture. Refrigerating the soap jellies is necessary, and using a tray makes it much easier to handle and transport them without the risk of spills. Trying to move silicone trays filled with liquid can be quite challenging!

Can I make soap jellies without a mold?

You can use an ice cube tray if you don't have or prefer not to purchase a soap mold. Alternatively, you can make them into bars by pouring the mixture into a casserole dish and cutting them into squares or shapes using the same instructions. Shop my soap mold here!

How to store soap jellies? 

Place soap jellies made with liquid soap and gelatin in a container with a lid and store them in the refrigerator. Storing soap jellies in the fridge can help prolong their shelf life, especially during the summer months, or if you live in a warm climate. Storing them in the fridge will cause slight condensation but don't worry about the excess moisture, blot the soap jelly with a paper towel before displaying them in a soap dish. During the winter months, you can keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

What You Will Need To Make Soap Jellies

2 packets of unflavored gelatin, typically located in the baking aisle of the grocery store.

1 1/3 cups of boiling water

1 cup of liquid soap

Silicone soap mold or an ice cube tray

How To Make Soap Jellies

Add 1 and 1/3 cups of boiling water to a bowl. Stir in two packets of unflavored gelatin, and mix until the gelatin is fully dissolved.

Pour 1 cup of liquid soap into the gelatin mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.

Place the silicone molds or ice cube trays on a cookie sheet, then pour the soap mixture into the molds.

Place the cookie tray with the filled molds in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours, or until the soap jellies have set and become firm.

How To Gift Soap Jellies?

As soap jellies should be refrigerated until ready for use, consider presenting them in glass or plastic containers when giving them as gifts.
