    Help Please, Rebatch is still playdoughy

    It'll probably harden up after curing for a few weeks. Try adding some sodium lactate to your lye water after it cools, it makes a big difference in my batches!!

    I love that idea!! You'll get some amazing shear with a drill! I've gone through quite a few mini mixers too. Some are lemons, some work amazingly, same as you!!
