    Good liquid hand soap base?

    Their body butter base is amazing! I have some of their liquid soap but have not tried it yet.

    Photo Backdrops

    I used Photoshop extensively for 20 years. Once I retired, I could no longer afford it so I looked high and low. I discovered Affimity Photo and have never looked back! Far less expensive and I can do everything I was able to do in Photoshop.

    Lavender fragrance

    I use lavender 40/42 with a touch of Rosemary. The Rosemary seems to make the lavender stick better.

    Sounds great! Simple yet complete.

    Hello there,

    Welcome! Are you a Missouri native or, like me, a transplant? I was born here (Kansas City) but grew up in upstate New York (Syracuse-area)-moved back about 20 years ago. I guess, for that reason, I say Missouri not Missourah.

    Wish SoapCalc was available for mac. In this day, there is no excuse for not having to be cross-platform. Excel works on all platforms and even integrates with Apple’s native spreadsheet Numbers. Very frustrating to have to spend time building my own version. Ugh! Excuse my whining. 😞😉

    Rethinking my shipping charges to customers

    We do that in the US. It is called Click n Ship. Put in weight, destination and voila! Pay for postage and print the label. You can also track easily. I'm use it for everything.

    I am-just hoping for a “lazy person’s” option! 😉 Actually, I have quit using Word or Excel and have moved to the native (and free) Pages and Numbers. Can save to excel and even use with Google docs. Took a little getting used to but now I like them a lot!

    Many of you are referencing Soapmaker 3 but I use a Mac not a Windows machine - any Mac users out there? What do you use?

    That is absolutely incorrect. Believe half of what you read and none of what you hear. 😉
