    This is weird...

    About a week ago, I made a disasterous attempt at CP...and found I had added too much water. So I wound up with half solid, half liquid. I chatted with forum members who suggested I rebatch, but I couldn't get the darn things out of the mold. So I put it aside for about five days....and...

    Disposal

    How do you get rid of a bad batch? Can you pour it down the sink? Do you toss everything out? (including the mold???)

    A horrible mess...or did I miss something?

    I tried to do CP for the first time last night....and just took a peak at the soaps. Only half of the batch is hardened...the other half is still liquid. What did I do wrong? Do I wait longer or just dump it out? How would I dispose of it, if I didn't do it correctly?

    Tried my first batch....not sure how it will come out.....

    Well, I tried my very first batch of CP tonight. What I had the most problem with was the temperature of the oils and lye. They were 100 degrees each when I finally mixed and started stirring...but by the time the trace happened after about 20 minutes, they had really cooled down. I felt no...

    I am going to attempt my first batch of CP soap tonight. I have a mold that holds four pounds of soap, so, I want to make certain I have this correct, so all feedback will be very much appreciated. If I use 64 oz. of oils, that will give me a four pound batch, correct? And I add my...

    A easier site?

    web site I had been using Homestead.com because I could both create my site AND have them host it. But they are HORRIBLE. Don't use them unless you just thrive on bad customer service.
