Collect the leftover bars of soap, and use a cheese grater to grate the dry pieces of soap into a large bowl or container. Soft or wet pieces of soap must dry out before you attempt to grate them.
Add a small amount of warm water to the soap shreds, and knead the soap and water together to form a large malleable chunk of soap. Gradually add more warm water as needed to soften the soap and help it stick together.
Separate the soap into pieces, and form the soap into the desired shapes. Alternatively, flatten the soap on a surface, and use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the soap into shapes. Place the soap on a piece of parchment paper in a well-ventilated area. Leave the soap to completely dry for about two weeks.
