    Purple Lilac Soap

    Marking the pots is a great idea! I am stuck on using plant based colours, so am limited in how to use them. That said, I do drool over those vibrant mica colours!!

    Grams or oz?????

    When I started making, I used oz... now that I understand more, I have switched to grams, and everything consistently comes out better.. if I were you, I would run your recipe through a calculator again, using grams, so that you have the most accurate information, and results.

    So 4-6 weeks to cure - how do you know?

    I'm still experimenting/learning, but I always find that when I grab s bar after a short cure, because I can't wait to try it, the next bar is always better.. more lather, creamier, whatever.. just better.. So, now I'm trying to use leftover bits first, and wait for the "good" bars to get a...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I love everyone's pictures so much!! I'm knee deep in prepping for a trade show.. since I mostly make cleaning products, I have no pretty pictures . Lots of liquid soap for dishes, though! And 1700+ sample jars of my all purpose cleaner...

    note to self

    I usually use the dishwasher for soapy stuff, but only non plastics, and separate from household stuff.. Funny story, though - the other day when I was washing, hubby came home to find suds all over our floor!!! Never again will I be too lazy to mostly wipe down my mixing tubs!!
