    First batch of soap gone wrong

    I do not have expert answers for those questions. I have lowered my temps to "comfortable to my hand" when feeling the outside of the container. And when I sneak in a thermometer, it has been around 92 degrees F.

    First batch of soap gone wrong

    I have never heard of it being done that way (mica before lye). Nor do I know if that has any impact on acceleration. I am sure somebody will be along to give advice on that.

    Planning a benefit

    Love all of these ideas! edit...florida has a lot of rules about "selling" bath products other than true soap. My question is, can I make it for a function or donation that doesn't involve me selling it? I can make bath salts and scrubs. I have never made bath bombs, but would love to try...

    First batch of soap gone wrong

    Please dont take this as expert advice, but i had a thread last week that i started because my batter was accelerating. This is what i learned after making numerous batches, heeding everybodys advice.... I really did not think it was my stickblending. But since that was what ppl told me...i...

    Planning a benefit

    These are great ideas!! I was also thinking “womens products”, cause that stuff can get expensive. Not sure if that would be a weird thing in a bag though

    Planning a benefit

    Me and a friend of mine were talking last night, and she mentioned that she was making bags for a womens shelter. My first thought...lets fill the bags up! I definitely have soap to put in there. Then our wheels started turning. Now we are planning a benefit to raise some money to get the bags...

    Chicken Soup and Chicken TOT pie

    Something I can speak with authority on LOL. I have made chicken soup since forever. But this isn't about my chicken soup. I make a pretty awesome chicken soup. There is nothing too special about it, other than everybody loves it. Last year I found a Rachael Ray recipe for Chicken Tot Pie...

    Definitely heeding Gecko's warning, and shunts, and cmzaha. I'm not going to sell right now. I learned my lesson on a few levels there. I got caught up in the moment and accepted money for them. But... not trying to be argumentative on any point, I have only used homemade soap for about 25...

    What soapy thing have you done today?
