    What's Left with Soapmaking Friend?

    Sorry, I just noticed this question. I have just used the calculator again and this time I am not able to duplicate the rounding off of my oil totals although I was able to do this numerous times a few weeks ago. In any case, I have uploaded a file so you can see which numerals were getting...

    What's Left with Soapmaking Friend?

    Hi, Jumpsa. I joined this forum during the past month or so, and like you, I generally come here when I need help with something (this too is my first post). I have just begun making cold process soap recently. I also reside in the PNW, on the Olympic Peninsula, in Sequim.
