    Breast Milk Soap

    Thanks for compliments! I have tried different ratio and I came to conclusion that I like 50/50 as I can add breast milk after water, lye and oil are well blended so that breast milk is least affected. You can theoretically make 100% breast milk (or any milk) but your milk is more likely to be...

    the "oldest" hand-made soap you have kept/used?

    Other soap maker told me that even after rancidification, it can function as soap and usable. Just smell bad. Not sure about DOS though. Anyhow, I appreciate all the comments! I do not care so much about scent as I havene't tried any. So it looks like the oil that matters more, and how...

    the "oldest" hand-made soap you have kept/used?

    wow, thank you for sharing everyone! I never used EO in my soap. 20year-old soap is impressive. it is good to know that some additive won't seem to affect the quality. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Soap Making mobile app

    the "oldest" hand-made soap you have kept/used?

    I am new to the soap making, and want to know what is the best way to keep hand made soap for a long time as a memorial memento, and what recipe work better for that purpose. I heard that soaps containing certain kind of oil are meant to be consumed sooner, like peanut oil and almond oil...

    CO, RBD vs Organic Virgin?????

    if you use liquid that is not clear (like milk carrot juice) it is difficult to know if lye is completely dissolved there could be a chunk of lye left in cured soap which you may not see if it does not appear on the surface. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Soap Making mobile app

    CO, RBD vs Organic Virgin?????

    could it be a problem of lye not completely dissolved and consequently was not saponified? Or not cured long enough and high pH? i have heard a horrer story that handmade soap burned fingers. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Soap Making mobile app
