I'm not sure if the pomace we get here is anything similar to what I see referred to as pomace. The pomace here states it's 51% olive oil and 48% sunflower oil
Is it possible/desirable to use this pomace as olive oil in soapmaking?
I'm guessing I'd need to recalculate the recipes?
Tbh, the lye was tricky. After 3 days and five shops I decided to place an order online. Literally two hours later, I found lye in a middle Eastern grocer's...for a quarter of the price of the online one! But it was too late to cancel the order! I still bought the one at the grocer's though!
Oh no 😬😬😬
I've just re-run the soap calculator with the change in oils and unsurprisingly the lye)water numbers are slightly different than if I'd used 100% pomace!
The difference isn't massive though.
Do you think it'll be ok?
We're petsitting for a wonderful couple who happen to keep honey bees.
I didn't realise they kept bees or would enjoy homemade soap so I never thought to bring my soapmaking things.
Anyway, thanks to the very helpful people on here recommending Zany's No Slime Castile, after looking around...
As I mentioned before, I'm away from home and would like to make soap for my host.
I was planning to make Zany's No Slime.
I don't have access to a stick blender though.
Is it realistic to attempt it stirring by hand?
I'm away on vacation looking after someone's house who would very much love some homemade soap.
I didn't realise this beforehand so I haven't got any of my oils with me.
Is there a simple recipe that doesn't use lard or palm oil that I could make for her?
Thank you for any suggestions
