    Best place to buy lye?

    I have ED lye with an expiration date of Dec 2021 I bought last year and I'm getting soft soap with it. Last time I buy from them.

    Sad day, i guess i need to make a decision

    I also think when you’re nauseated wet food is easier on your stomach than dry. Same reason I like mac & cheese when I feel sick instead of dry toast.

    Oh, Kim. I am so sorry for you and Abby! Poor baby. I’m praying she swiftly and completely recovers.

    ROE revisited

    I've read as many of the ROE posts here as I could find before prevailing upon your forbearance and I know this is going to sound like a grade school math story problem, but my calculating skills have not progressed much beyond 5th grade. So I need some help. I have a 35-pound bucket of...

    I just posted on Facebook a coronavirus paper I wrote for our church that y'all may find useful. It's on my FB page Kari Roberson-Howie.

    Naming your soaps

    I do both. Then sometimes I work the fragrance name in with a made up name. Unfortunately I can’t think of any examples right now at 0:dark thirty in the morning.

    "pH adjusted beauty water"

    You could say the same about your soap. Aren’t we all careful to formulate a soap that is safe for skin and hence “pH adjusted”?

    Post your Gripe

    My daughter’s roommate from college works at Google. She puts a piece of opaque tape over the camera on her laptop. And I know Siri is always listening to me when she thinks I’m talking to her when I say to my husband “Hey, Jerry!” Therefore I’m leery of another portal of electronic entry, like...

    Just like Siri. She rarely gets anything right.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Tralala! Aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhh! I’m embarrassed to admit that the above catastrophe, characterized by concrete stuck in a pot in one pic and soap on a stick that was hand-mashed into a mold, represents my mathematically dyslexic attempt at a ghost swirl. Of course neither is even fit for...

    Pre-make 1 of 2 layers?

    Hmmm. Not sure the layers in option two could be depended upon to stick together. However, now to think of it, I made a slab of soap that I let sit overnight and made large holes in it the next day with an apple corer and small holes with a metal straw. I filled the holes with fresh batter and...

    I have the same system, which I love. However, I believe the bars still need to be fully cured before wrapping.
