    Lye calc confusion for Liquid Soap

    Thanks a lot for the responses. When I knew little, I followed soapcalc.net. As time passed, I started reading a lot whenever I was not soaping. This is the bane of over analysing I guess :) I will stick to soapcalc.net and get to work. And completely grateful for the Water:Lye Ratio tip...

    Hello everyone, This is my first post here and I have tried out a few CP, HP, solid and liquid soaps. Now I'm ready to share with friends and family and maybe sell eventually. :):):) I am forever confused with Lye calculators since each gives a different result. I'm trying to make a small...
