Substitution

by Carol Bishop

So, I own a winery and I want to make soap. Is it possible to substitute wine for the water? Or at least grape juice? I'd love to incorporate our wine somehow into my soap to sell.


Answer:

Certainly! You follow the same procedures as if you were making beer soap.

Boil the wine to remove some of the alcohol, chill until cold and then use in place of water in the recipe.

Check on the soap every now and then once you insulate it since the juice is high in sugar and could cause the soap to overheat. As soon as it reaches a full gel, open up the soap mold and allow it to cool. I like to place a fan on the soap to blow away any evaporating moisture and to help it cool better.
