    Wine soap

    I've wanted to try it as well. We also make homemade wine...and would love to use it in soap. I do know from reading around that it needs to be boiled beforehand, but curious how it ends up after it cures. Would love to hear anyones experience with it.

    I bought the SS a month back from them and although I've only soaped 2 batches since then...the colors sure were true. I would recommend them.

    Tooth ache

    Lane...I've gone thru the same thing with roots from wisdom teeth not being removed properly. I had several roots removed from both upper sides 5 years ago. Apparently when those wisdom teeth were taken out years and years ago...some roots were left behind :x You would "think" they would take...

    Tooth ache

    Thank goodness. I'm glad you went to a dentist. How'd you make out? I had my root canal on Friday and the dentist said I still had some lingering infection in that tooth so I have another week of antiobiotics. He said it was one of the worst tooth infections he's seen. I was so embarrassed...

    Tooth ache

    Holy crap Lane! Girl...I FEEL your pain. I suffered a horrible abscessed tooth 2 weeks ago. I went 2 days and finally got an emergency appointment. The left side of my face looked like I had a tennis ball in there..overnight. NOTHING WORKED for that pain. Not clove oil, salt, vodka...

    Silicone Tray

    I was just wondering something similiar to this myself. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and saw a package of 2 silicone baking mats. I was wondering to myself if I could somehow line a mold with it. (I just bought an IKEA fira storage thing and was looking for an easy way to line some of the...

    Where can I buy sodium hydroxide?

    Lowes has the Plumbing aisle. My local True Value will order it for me, they just don't keep it on the shelves, except for 1 bottle at a time. We have known the owners of this True Value for years and if they don't have it...if they can order it for you, they will.

    My 5th batch - flirting with colour

    Cool soap mold choice for the large slab. That looks like the bottom of a tupperware marinating container that I have. That WOULD make a great massage bar mold! Good job!

    pics of today's batch

    Here are the cut pics. I need to work on getting the swirl into the bottom. I poured a bit too thick I think. I still like the way it turned out though. I got a complete full gel, which I wasn't sure I'd like, but it makes the colors much brighter.

    pics of today's batch

    My first batch with some of my new colorants! I decided, what the heck...I want to try a double swirl. I can't wait to cut it! I colored it with sunshine from celestial colors...then used the blueberry pop and the apple green pop from TKB for the swirls. I used a combination of creamy...
