    Help with soap technique

    If it were me, @soapSuds , I would isolate the one thing I liked best about this soap and then try to replicate that one piece, then perhaps add others. So if you like the semi-swirls, go for ITP swirl. If you like the lines, do a spin swirl. (Both of these will have swirl all the way through)...

    Discoloring FO

    My approach is a little different ..I buy an FO, forget it discolours, act surprised, make a second batch trying to work it in to a black/brown colour scheme, then finally decide to only use that FO in lotion or body butter :-P (also, if you really like the scent and really want some sort of...

    Help with soap technique

    It looks a bit like my spin swirl, which goes all the way through.

    Where to make soap/hazard to pets?

    Especially if you're making smaller batches (under 1kg), the amount of lye you're mixing won't generate much in fumes. One thing to be careful about is not to spill the granules on the floor (or counter) where a pet would come and lick up the "crumbs".

    Where to make soap/hazard to pets?

    I agree with the kitchen being the ideal place....there's really no benefit to being outside and lots of potential hazards (rain, wind, falling leaves, sun in your eyes, etc). Much more controlled environment inside. Can you lock your pets on the deck while you use the kitchen?

    How to Keep Soap Scents From Fading?

    Yes, that makes sense too. And, to come full circle....for a 3lb batch of soap, they'd likely need about 100ml of FO, which is about 3.3 oz :p Who says metric and imperial don't line up???

    How to Keep Soap Scents From Fading?

    I don't think you mean .33ml. I think you mean 33 ml which would be just about one ounce. .33 ml would be about 6 drops. Either way, you do need to weigh and you need to know your units.

    New Soaping Area.

    hmmmm that's true. I forgot that in the US there's the soap/non-soap split (in Canada it's all Health Canada). This makes me wonder if the story is a bit apocryphal....either way, guess she could get a visit from any regulating agency, but you're right, it's a bit odd...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I have that mould too! Mine came with a mould for smaller dinos, too; you're right, the others are BIG. I've only made one batch so far but do intend to make more. Oh wait, mine is slightly different. Cute tho!

    Coronavirus

    Yeah I didn't want to actually say the v-word. Spending more time with your family? Doesn't cause polio or measles. Not getting a vaccination and spending time with anyone other than your cat? Increases risks of both.

    New Soaping Area.

    Yeah that was my take-away...whatever triggered it (and I agree that saying the *smell* is medicinal isn't claiming your product is a drug!), *IT* ended up being a big hairy deal. And that doesn't even count the civil claims that someone could (in theory) bring against an entrepreneur (which...

    I think you've mentioned wanting to sell so I'm reposting this very interesting cautionary tale. There may be some useful information for you : A Surprise Visit from the FDA - Soap Queen

    Polio and measles are caused by lack of contagion? That is definitely a new theory to me!

    Color Conundrum

    I agree with @Megan ! Attached are some examples of the ultramarine blue...so vibrant and you use so little. Much cheaper than mica, too.....

    Coronavirus

    Actually, it looks like it's not a conspiracy keeping it down...it's capitalism!! However, investment and development are likely to be significantly slowed by a legal battle regarding the IP of the invention now being waged between BGU’s tech-transfer company and The Ram Group conglomerate. 10...

    Coronavirus

    I did see this reported a while back, but it seems that it's not just the mainstream media that's hiding it.....you'd think that Ben-Gurion University would want to make this information known! Do we know why they're not publicizing their own research? I wonder if perhaps the subsequent trials...

    Want to share my soap experiment

    Very vibrant! Fingers crossed that the colour somehow stays!
