This clear liquid is used to test soap for excess lye. To test the soap cut off a portion of the center of the soap and apply a drop of the phenolphthalein solution. If the solution turns deep pink or fuchsia then the soap should not be used on skin. If the drop stays clear or light pink then the soap is safe.
