I do not use preservatives, but I only give my liquid soap to very select people.

What Susie said is the same for me ^^^. I don't add any preservatives to mine either, and I only make it for myself and select family members.

I'm so glad you are enjoying the soap.

May I add a little advice? I have made a lot of batches (I have a large family that loves it) anyway I miscalculated and added to much water to a batch so I added some paste to the jar and put it back in the pot on a low rolling boil_ It exploded in the water> SO IF YOU EVER NEED TO REHEAT IT WOULD BE BEST TO USE A NEW JAR> It is the only time it happened to me so I think the Bail jar was weakened by a second boil_ oh I was so upset_it was sixteen oz of good soap I lost:
sorry about my post< my keyboard is fried>

Did you have the jar on a dishcloth or rack to keep it off the bottom?

Irishlass, I have a question about adding the stearic acid to soap dilution. The "Baker's Percentage"
Do you add stearic acid with your water, SL and Edta, PS80?

I add the stearic acid and PS80 to my canning jar along with the paste and set aside momentarily. Then I combine the water, sodium lactate, and EDTA to a small pot and heat to boiling, then I pour it immediately into my jar of paste/stearic/PS80 before covering and setting the jar in my boiling water bath.
