    Gellers: CPOP vs insulating

    I'm wondering when to do CPOP versus burying my mold in towels. For forever my soaps would spend a night all tucked in under towels. However, my last several soaps have taken a long time to design and I get paranoid that it's cooled off too much, so I CPOP. Is there a rule of thumb or is it...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Today was Day 2 of making my January Challenge soap. I made another planet and the rest of the universe. I think my shredded white soap for stars were too finely shredded. Everything is cozy in the oven for the night. @Misschief, so just this very week I discovered Meyer lemons for the...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Today I made two planets (that sounds pretty powerful) for my January Challenge entry. I way over estimated how much I'd need for my molds and had to scramble for extra molds. I've got lots of tree soaps now, all ready for Christmas 2021, and plenty for future confetti soaps. I'm driving...

    Any suggestions for soap cutters?

    I'm just a hobbyist and got this one several months ago and I love it! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PHZKC6D/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I looked for awhile to find one where the shipping costs weren't an arm and a leg. Good luck,

    I have a mini-cylinder silicone mold. I use several binder clips on the bottom and sides and have not had any leakage.

    Partial Gel - how long after cutting can I try fixing in oven?

    Just my opinion, but I do not think the rind detracts from the appearance at all! It frames the bar.

    Partial Gel - how long after cutting can I try fixing in oven?

    I get a rind when I use rosehips powder. After cutting, you can practically watch the color darken from the outside in -- it's freaky deaky. I also get a rind when I use cocoa powder and that takes days to become uniform.

    Gentler, longer-lasting bar without lard

    Your recipe looks good to me! I recently made soap using a very similar ingredient list and it was definitely longer-lasting than other recipes. Let us know how it goes!

    Beginner Questions

    Welcome! I haven't used colloidal oatmeal but you may want to search Soap Queen or Bramble Berry for articles. I only use essential oils and have not tried fragrance oils. My understanding, though, from comments here and elsewhere that fragrance oils last longer. I get my usage rates from...

    Wowza, both look awesome! How'd you do the circles in the Citrus Drop? And can I ask what you used for black? The black and gold is stunning.
