    What soapy thing have you done today?

    :p Am I not supposed to be able to swirl a 50 percent palm recipe? I am surprised I didn't have problems then, because everything I have been making lately has accelerated! Call it beginner's luck! Thank you!

    SMF June 2020 Un-Challenge - Half & Half

    @dibbles Thanks! I used 1/2 teaspoon of the gold and 3/4 teaspoon of the black and each portion was about 0.875 lbs of oils. They are recommended at 1/2 teaspoon PPO. I didn't want a dark black, more of a rich brown, so didn't up the black clay too much from the recommended amount. I did...

    Lard soaps and DOS?

    I am a new CP soaper and was checking out my past soaps today and found one of my latest ones has spots that I think might be DOS. This is my 7th batch of soap and it was made on 5/17, so just now 4 weeks old. This was one of my first two tries at a 50% lard batch. I based it on one of...
