    What soapy thing have you done today?

    It’s been so fun getting new supplies and setting up my new soaping area. I even got my first FO and I actually like it!!!

    I had read 6 month minimum cure for salt bars. Yours are good at 3 months? I’d LOVE it if mine were ready at 3 months!!!

    What is NSF?

    HSCG membership is $175 and I think the insurance was $275. Those were both for the smallest scale of selling available.

    The main light is the long led light. I hope to get some more of those.

    One scale.

    Maybe I posted the question too soon. Based on recommendations here, this looks like a good brand. If anyone has experience or opinions on this model I’d welcome them. My Weigh Maestro

    I’ve taken the cautionary tales to heart and am considering getting all my legal ducks in a row, as I go. I’m not there yet, but am moving in that general direction. And, this isn’t perfect, but it sure does beat working upstairs in the kitchen!

    Responding to the wrong person. I haven’t use tar. Are the mermaid tails soap embeds?

    Thank you! I hadn’t found this forum yet.

    One scale.

    Searched SMF, no answer. Looking for recommendations for a scale that can do large, up to 7kg, but also sensitive 1/100th?

    Thanks! I’m on a make-my-own budget for right now. But, this is on my list of next items to get!

    Is this the pine tar, or the neem?

    Tried Out My New Mold

    I’ve been looking at Nurture molds, but they don’t seem to have any with dividers available on their site.

    Can you make your own dividers?

    Glad I searched “dividers”, lots of good ideas here. I’ve got a bunch of old lids for plastic totes that don’t have a matching bottom. I’m going to try and make a couple dividers from those.

    It’s beautiful!! I wonder if it would have looked any differently without the extra heat.

    This is great advice! I’d rather comply from the start. So, I’m looking to see how I can ready this new area as I’m organizing it. Is the HSCG insurance (Veracity) what most soap sellers have? Also, HSCG seems to be a good resource for requirements. Any others?

    Thanks! Yikes!! Good reminder to stay on top of the rules and regs. Just registered for HSCG, they seem to have consolidated good info on the requirements. Are they a good source? Any other sources you recommend? I’m gearing up to sell, but want to take my time and do it right.

    I have a small kitchen and keep all my soap supplies downstairs in the garage. I have been making soap int he kitchen upstairs, which means a LOT of trips up and down the stairs. That’s not too bad, exercise and all. But, can’t make food if I’m in a project. Also, stains and spills and stuff...

    New Soaping Area.

    I can always carry my bowl of oils up stairs to the microwave. It’d sure be easier than carrying each of my oils upstairs to my kitchen to measure, and then back downstairs to store them again! The more I think about moving my operation to the garage, the more excited I’m getting about it!! The...
