    Rebatch Question

    Hi Soapers... I have a question. I decided to chunk up some soap that I made yesterday. I un-molded and it was weeping lots of oil and had a hole from where the white layer (top of soap) met the swirl layers. I have never rebatched before, because I haven't had too many disasters (lucky me)...

    Nicest Compliment

    Today, I received the nicest compliment and rewarding gift...a lady who I routinely give soaps too, gave my soap to one of her friends who then shared it with her husband, who loved it. He reached out and asked if he could buy some soaps because he is a coach of a football team and have several...

    Pine Tar Hazards

    My next attempt is a pine tar soap. Is there one brand of pine tar better than another that you would recommend? I read somewhere about being cautious about toxicity or hazards (something along those lines). What exactly do I look for? Thanks in advance!

    Gelling after 24 hours?

    I made some soap yesterday with a routinely used recipe. I have stopped insulating my soaps because I notice that the soap in my hdpe mold heats pretty fierce and even. However, 2 times and yesterday my soap never gelled (I was up really late watching movies, so I checked frequently), but it...

    Melting Soap in the Shower/Soap Scum Questions

    Is there anything you can do to prevent soap melt in the shower? I realize keeping the soap dry, putting it up on a wire wrack or using a soap dish so it can drain are all things that can prevent soap scum, but is there anything you can add to soap? Does sodium lactate work for this or aid in...

    Wrapping Circular Soap

    Any ideas on how to wrap this soap? I don't sell, but I am big on presentation. It's the perfectionist in me. I have a professional logo that was made and I label my soaps with my logo and stamp them. My rectangular soaps I normally band them with Kraft brown material and affix my logo/label in...
