Hi all.
I have bought some refined African black soap.
(It looks like a brick) I’ve tried melting it in a broiler. No joy. I’ve microwaved it, it didn’t melt, just smoked and stank the house out. How do I melt it down so I can pour it? Ive Heard it’s hard to melt but this just seems impossible. I don’t want to make liquid soap, I would just like to rebatch it into my own bars of soap.
TIA for any advice.

How did it turn out for you? I also have some ABS that I want to transform into a bar to help with my marks.
