    Help with tracking recipes

    Thank you, I saw that and I gave up my computer and laptop years ago. I really don’t like sitting at a desk like I did for years at work. I’ve been on YouTube today learning about Notion and it is a complicated process but, it seems worth the effort. Lol, I agree my iPad is pretty much for fun...

    Help with tracking recipes

    Thank you so much! I will definitely look into it and it seems like just what I’m looking for. I have to say I’ve seen your soap and you have quite an eye for color and design. Thanks

    Help with tracking recipes

    I’m hoping somebody could help me with a simple way of tracking my soaps and the small changes I make to recipes. I’d really like an app I could use on my phone or iPad so I can keep a copy of Soap Calc, a picture of the soap and continuous notes. My handwritten notebook is falling short for...

    Number 3 in soap calc

    Thank you! That article is a game changer for me and I’m only part way through it. I’ll definitely have to read and reread again.

    Number 3 in soap calc

    Today I am going to lower my SF to 3 for the first time. One section in soapcalc that I do not understand is 3, the water and lye section. I’ve lowered my water many times but have never used the other two options. Are the just different ways of saying the same things? Could someone please...

    Dissolving vitamins for lotions

    I know nothing about the details above but, 2 days ago I made a small batch of facial HP soap. After it cooked I put in a generous amount of superfoods powder and colloidal oatmeal on a whim. Just to see.

    Octopus soap

    That is the cutest soap I’ve seen in a very long time. 😊

    Thank you!

    Having not made soap in 5 years I made my first batch two days ago and it was humbling. I’ve been watching videos and reading for about a year now. My first experiment was to drop my castor from 10 to 5, up my CO from 15 to 20 upped my lard to 50% and lowered my super fat to 5. I’m not saying I...

    Lard too old or not?

    Thanks, I will. I’ve got the time and the curiosity!

    Lard too old or not?

    Do you rebatch to super fat later or use it as is?

    Lol, no need to apologize to me! This site was a little confusing to me when I first joined. There’s so much information here and with a little practice it makes sense. I’m laughing with you and not at you 😊.

    Thank you so much for the information. I’ve been comparing my scales to make sure they are still accurate and they are. I was still wondering how they’d do with tiny amounts and I think I will invest in the scale you mentioned so that I can be sure. Being newly retired I’m turning my kitchen...
