I used a salt bar in a pinch the other day after changing the tyres and was really pleased. My next kitchen/garden soap will be a coffee salt bar

Hmm .. looks simple, but it is quite difficult to do by me, a beginner in making soap ..

Maybe from you, anyone can recommend a thread that discusses the basic techniques of making soap

Check out the Beginner section of the forum and read back through. Very recently a lot of links to video guides were posted which might well help

Here, let me save you some time:


There are four videos in this series, be sure to watch them all.

But you really, really need to read through at least 5 pages (including stickies) of the beginner section to avoid some common mistakes.

I agree with the others. Start with the stickies and then on to the beginners section. I think I read every post in the beginners section and others as well when I first joined the forum. Welcome to the forum.
