I agree with Kittish. And when I started making soap I was obsess with everything. But I have calm down.

If the temperature is 5 degrees off, is not a big deal. If one poured 1.1 oz of oil, instead in 1 oz, is ok. With lye, as long as it not passes the correct exact amount, is ok. If my lye measurement calls for 2.25, and I poured 2.1, is ok. I superfat at 2 or 3 % so I have lots of wiggle room.
