    Soap is too pretty to use / good enough to eat

    Intresting. I guess having a good grip of the soap is also a factor. I also find soap made from a pringles can easy to use. Im loving all the diff opinions here truly learning a lot from everyone's input.

    Soap is too pretty to use / good enough to eat

    Glad to hear your opinions bout it. Helps a lot. I guess I'll save my cupcakes for holidays. I also prefer soap bars in the shower. Guess I'll have to mix up my range to see how people will react to it. I think I'll categorize them as artisan (fancy), & classic or oldfashion and probably wrap...

    Soap is too pretty to use / good enough to eat

    I'm known for my fancy stuff so i guess I'll make a classic range to compliment it. Makes me wonder what would classify as a less fancy soap? Would a 2 tone mica swirl top with a single color body still be too pretty to use? Love your witty comebacks. I should practice that. Thanks for the tip.

    Soap is too pretty to use / good enough to eat

    Hi! I started selling my artisan soaps at craft fairs. I've got a lot of attention coz it's not common where I'm from. People who stop and admire my stuff say it's good enough to eat (i make chocolate scented cupcakes) or they say it's too pretty to use (my lavender drop swirl soaps). I do get...

    Storing Bath bombs to avoid humidity

    Hi! I can't seem to store my bath bombs properly. I tried making bb powder placing them in a twist jar, 3 days into it, it fizzed. I tried double shrink wrapping & it's starting to fizz. My bath bombs are dried in an airtight container w/ a mini dehumidifier for 48 hours. I've been wanting...

    Finished Bath Bomb Issues?

    I find that my BB also stick together during drying so I just make sure i leave enough space. I live in a humid country so I dry mine in an airtight container w/ a mini dehumidifier. They dry perfectly. My problem is after drying, they always seem to find a way to fizz even when I store them in...

    Bath bombs and pre-mature fizzing

    Nope. I dont add anything to the recipe. I find adding more leads to cracks in my environment. I dont even add any color.

    Bath bombs and pre-mature fizzing

    Hi! I live in a very humid country and my bombs that dry overnight always fizz when i check on them the next day. So instead i let them dry in my camera dry box with a mini dehumidifier. It worked like a charm. So the next day i left one out in my room to check what will happen. An hour later it...

    Help! Milk Soap Has Pink Spots & Sweats.

    The soap is just for me and my friends who are so looking forward to it. I'm so happy i can still use it. Thank God it's not Dos. That dos was a scare. After cutting the soaps they didn't have any pink spots. I keep it at the topmost part of my curing racks. No one really goes in my soaping...
