    How to Keep Soap Scents From Fading?

    I don't think you mean .33ml. I think you mean 33 ml which would be just about one ounce. .33 ml would be about 6 drops. Either way, you do need to weigh and you need to know your units.

    New Soaping Area.

    hmmmm that's true. I forgot that in the US there's the soap/non-soap split (in Canada it's all Health Canada). This makes me wonder if the story is a bit apocryphal....either way, guess she could get a visit from any regulating agency, but you're right, it's a bit odd...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I have that mould too! Mine came with a mould for smaller dinos, too; you're right, the others are BIG. I've only made one batch so far but do intend to make more. Oh wait, mine is slightly different. Cute tho!

    Coronavirus

    Yeah I didn't want to actually say the v-word. Spending more time with your family? Doesn't cause polio or measles. Not getting a vaccination and spending time with anyone other than your cat? Increases risks of both.

    New Soaping Area.

    Yeah that was my take-away...whatever triggered it (and I agree that saying the *smell* is medicinal isn't claiming your product is a drug!), *IT* ended up being a big hairy deal. And that doesn't even count the civil claims that someone could (in theory) bring against an entrepreneur (which...

    I think you've mentioned wanting to sell so I'm reposting this very interesting cautionary tale. There may be some useful information for you : A Surprise Visit from the FDA - Soap Queen

    Polio and measles are caused by lack of contagion? That is definitely a new theory to me!

    Color Conundrum

    I agree with @Megan ! Attached are some examples of the ultramarine blue...so vibrant and you use so little. Much cheaper than mica, too.....

    Color Conundrum

    The irony of using a mica called Indigo Girls to make a police-themed soap.....

    Coronavirus

    Actually, it looks like it's not a conspiracy keeping it down...it's capitalism!! However, investment and development are likely to be significantly slowed by a legal battle regarding the IP of the invention now being waged between BGU’s tech-transfer company and The Ram Group conglomerate. 10...

    Coronavirus

    I did see this reported a while back, but it seems that it's not just the mainstream media that's hiding it.....you'd think that Ben-Gurion University would want to make this information known! Do we know why they're not publicizing their own research? I wonder if perhaps the subsequent trials...

    Want to share my soap experiment

    Very vibrant! Fingers crossed that the colour somehow stays!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    That was quite the storm wasn't it?? I, on the other hand, could have made something , as my soaping kitchen is in the basement and my wife made us all stay down there until the tornado warning had passed. I did a grand tour of all my curing soaps, since the kids were a captive audience....

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I'm actually a bit farther away than you are (depending how far north in Calgary you are....up Nose Hill way? ;-) ), about 300km. BUT, we have relatives in the US, so (used to) travel there a few times a year. That being said, everything in SW ON does feel closer to the US ....like the 401 just...
