    Hello! New here - appreciate advice.

    thanks. That is interesting. I am gathering my tools and supplies and thought I would wait for better weather but maybe I will give this a try. We are in the high 90's here with lots of humidity.

    Great idea. I started doing that with my garden for just that reason. It helps to know what made a fruit grow or why you killed it.

    Hello! New here - appreciate advice.

    Wow! I never thought about the humidity! Good to keep in mind. I only have a microwave to vent from my stove so it vents back into the room. I didn't think that was such a good idea with the lye. We do plan on building a canning house but that is a few years away yet.

    Thanks, Do you ever have the same soap last and then the next time the same one turns in only a few months? I had hopes that over time I would find 2 or 3 that we like and be able to stick with them.

    Hi. Can you tell me what size and how many soap pots you would recommend? Thank you.

    Hello! New here - appreciate advice.

    Thanks! I didn't know that about the aluminum! I am thinking that due to fumes I might do this outside on a propane grill. Any thoughts on that? I don't have an outside kitchen vent for my stove. Also, will the lye eat through your shirt? I thought I would wear long sleeves when mixing.

    Hello! New here - appreciate advice.

    Hello. I have never made my own soap but have always wanted to. I found a lot of advice on how to buy soap and melt it to pour into molds but that is not what I am looking for! I appreciate your help on good resources for learning, books, YouTube, supplies, and where to buy them. I am only...
