    Coconut Oil for Laundry

    Yup! Plain coconut soap disolves fine in cold or hot water. I grated the soap and let it dry a day. Then I mixed 1 pound of the soap with 2 cups borax, 2 cups washing soda and 1 cup biz. I ran it through the blender and it is perfect. Sudsy

    Coconut Oil for Laundry

    I just grated up my all coconut soap and plan use it dry this time. I always add about 1/4 cup white vinegar and just a touch of Downy(2 Tablespoons) to the final rinse. The clothes smell nice and fresh. The coconut soy soap was stinky..I threw it out! I am expecting the powdered form to...

    Me again! With another question.

    Coconut and palm both tend to overheat in my soap. I use a lot of coconut and palm because it make such a nice hard bar. I rarely cover my soap except to help the corners of the mold to gel. Honey,beeswax,sugar and milk also cause overheating and cracks. Been there...done that...

    Coconut Oil for Laundry

    Hummm...Nobody told me you can't use all coconut so that what I do because it doesn't have any odor to it. I just grate about a pound of it and add washing soda and borax. I think it disolves much easier without the other oils. I recently tried adding plain vegetable oil and soaped it at 0%...

    Snow Drift Farm Fragrance Oils

    Hi Boopie...sorry but I just saw your post. I have used a few of their FO's and I'm sure that they were strong and stuck with the cp but I am positive I used more per pound. It's been a while but I never use less than 3/4 to 1 oz per pound in cp. I like lots of scent. Maybe less would be ok for...

    Air Bubbles !! sure you have safety glasses on when you tap the mold to smooth out the soap. It can easily splash into you eyes, Ask me how I know! Sudsy Bubbles

    I agree with reallyrita that the soap might not be safe to use. It almost looks as if it curdled the milk. Better to be safe than sorry. Sudsy Bubbles

    Stewing Plant Essence In Lard

    I've only tried this once and it came out nice. I added my essential oil to the lard before mixing in my lye solution. The spearmint scent was awesome for a 100% lard soap! I would think you could do the same with plant material but probably won't get much scent from it. It might even...

    Shea Butter

    Where is the best place to buy shea butter? I am interested in whipped shea and read the post about "blocks or chunks of shea". I thought it was soft. Is it more in the form like a hard chunk of tallow? I have bought it before but maybe it already had something added to it. Thanks Sudsy...
