    Storage of CP in summer

    Well I don't know much about the north east being from Georgia myself but I do remember something about cellars/basements being used to store away goods that needed to be kept cooler from something or other I read as a kid. So maybe that can help.

    Going without soap.

    O.o The idea of going sans shampoo alone terrifies me enough no soap. *shudder* Where I live triple digits and 90%+ humidity is normal.

    Soap recipe to help eczema

    Nothing can heal or make it go away short of finding out what is causing it and even in some cases knowing the cause won't change anything. Beyond that pine tar or tea tree oil may help with the symptoms but like anything else could do nothing or even make it worse.

    soap making kits?

    Don't mind short bars considering I haven't used bars in years just want something I don't have to do a lot of measuring out for right at first. I want the process down before I get into the measuring out portion of it.

    soap making kits?

    Fridge space is also at a premium. I'm actually considering digging the mini fridge out of one of the sheds to see if it would have enough room. And my cat issue is the cats start fighting the dogs start chasing them and anything stored on the floor may just get broken in the process.:oops:
