    You can buy a cap for PVC pipe. Or you can try and find a can that fits the end just about
    exactly. You still use plastic wrap to seal the end of the pipe then fit it in the can. I screw
    the can to a ...

    I use old cotton sheet material to line my powder coated wire drawers. I like the wire drawers
    because they let the air circulate. I change the cotton sheet material and wash it regularly
    (every month...

    Or you can just sprinkle a tiny amount of soap confetti on top - different coloured confetti to

  • Posted in thread: Making non dairy condensed milk.. on 04-08-2017 at 11:34 PM
    That'ts pretty cool. I can't complain when it comes to milk. I can use the lactose-free
    varieties. I have thought about making condensed milk from time to time. The non dairy milks
    scare me since I'm ...

    When I did my dual lye Castile soaps, I also used [40% Lye] concentration so for me they
    hardened up and I was able to cut much sooner than usual. I found that to be the case with
    multiple oil soaps t...

    My KOH says it is 95% pure. However, I live in the humid south, and I KNOW it has absorbed some
    humidity, so I just use the 90% purity setting on the calculator, and it all comes out OK.I
    will check w...

    I'll take a photo tomorrow. It's not mold related as it was clean but has happened in two
    molds. It might be because it's cold here. I made ANOTHER batch and I put a pizza stone in the
    oven and heated...

  • Posted in thread: Certain type of oils causing soda ash ? on 04-03-2017 at 06:27 AM
    I use up to 30% avocado oil and 30-31% lye concentration and I do the same as Irish Lass
    (wonder where I learnt that! :)) but I do lightly spray with alcohol and I cover it and wrap it
    in a blanket be...

    I can't see anything unusual about your recipe (in either version) (30-33% lye concentration,
    5-6% SF, 5% KOH at 100% purity).If you were worried that something was astray with measuring,
    you could we...
