    @TheGecko BAHAHAHA! I will do a special laundry and report back to let you know if the state of my lingerie was the problem 🤣

    Nope- no botanicals, embeds, chunks or bits - just a wee bit of oat flour and kaOlin clay j,

    Soap cutter

    Thanks, that does make sense and I will trya lower surface. I am getting crooked cuts, and my sharp knife and mitre box make much smoother cuts as well (the wire seems to leave draggy marks although I have the wire VERY taut). I think I will have to get used to drag marks, but I am determined...

    Soap cutter

    I must be missing something (talent and skill for starters) - I got a Hercules for Christmas and I’m struggling with it. Maybe I’m making the wire too taut? Maybe I’m not holding the soap properly against the side wall? Or my tongue on the right side of my mouth? 🤷

    Hahaha I’m recovering from my first bout of covid and I’m blaming that for every confusing comment/thought/reaction I’ve had all week. And I’ll keep this excuse going as long as I can.

    I used 50:50 lavender:rosemary. Thought that had a good chance of sticking. i don’t have much FO but may try that.

    I had the same result today. I only waited 30 minutes after combining salts and EOs - maybe should have been longer - then added to rinse cycle. NO fragrance whatsoever after the load spun dry.I did add a bit more EO than was suggested. 🤷🤷. Guess I will go back to putting a few drops of EO onto...

    Warning: Addiction

    YES! @Creepy you expressed exactly how I feel 😁 If I’d had any idea 10 months ago how much time and MONEY I’d have spent on soaping by the end of 2022 - I may never have taken the plunge. But this new passion/hobby/learning curve has given me so much in the way of learning and entertainment -...

    How do Canadian soap makers stay in business?

    Shipping for small orders is insane in Canada. Seems ro be a base fee applies and then weight/size is on top of that. I learned to never buy less than $100 in an order as the shipping cost just isn’t worth it.

    How do Canadian soap makers stay in business?

    Oh, you are singing the song of my people! I don’t live anywhere near the border but I do envy Canadians who can get product from the USA without paying shipping and duty and customs taxes etc. there are products I would LOVE to try but total costs, especially with the exchange rate, are way too...

    Review of the Hercules Soap Cutting Station from Custom Craft Tools

    Thanks, @AliOop! Used my Hercules for the first time today and discovered I can STILL make an uneven cut. I’m talented that way.

    Felt Soaps

    You can keep the felt to use as a washcloth, or cut it open and put another bar of soap inside, or compost it!

    Review of the Hercules Soap Cutting Station from Custom Craft Tools

    Wheee!! My husband gave me a Hercules for Christmas! I’m very excited about getting to use it, and retiring hubby’s mitre box and a kitchen knife, which doesn’t always give me even cuts. But - I must be in need of more help than other Hercules users - I NEED INSTRUCTIONS! Or at least a few...

    I will NOT buy any new fragrance oils!

    We Canadians use both! It’s really odd. we moved to metric about 50 years ago I think - but we STILL weigh our bodies in pounds and ounces although we weigh food at the grocery store in kilos and grams (grocery stores often show both metric and imperial). Distances? Kilometres. Unless it’s a...
