    Recommendations for smart phone case

    These are the only cases I buy anymore. I get the tough cases and, unlike an otterbox imo, doesn't add much bulk. The one I had for over a year still only had minimal signs of wear despite my 4 and 2 year old girls. No cracks or chips, just little scratches from hitting the ground and dulled...

    Prefer rebatching? Seeking new ideas

    I'm just curious, why do you cure you're base soap before rebatching it? It will need a cure after as well for the extra liquid to evaporate, so what is the purpose of the first cure?

    Soap related humor & MEMES with soap on their mind

    Lol I can imagine it wasn't as it was happening but it's a heck of a story lol. I've been afraid that the sheriff is going to randomly show up at my house while I'm making things in my soaps shed here recently. If all my neighbors didn't know me and what I was doing they probably would because I...

    soap warming up after its been cut.

    How long were you leaving them in the freezer? Even here in hot and humid Mississippi, I can pull my soaps out after 10-12 hours (overnight usually) and let them thaw on the counter and they don't heat back up.

    Body Butter Preservatives

    Are they actually going rancid or are they growing funky things? If they're truly going rancid, I agree with the above posters about adding ROE to your oils. If they're growing nasties then you need a true preservative like Phenonip

    Bath bomb disaster

    I would try binding it with a butter like shea or cocoa instead of witch hazel. Its may help hold it together better.

    M&P Packaging - what are you doing to be unique?

    I don't do much MP, but what I do I shrink wrap. I can't get it to look quite as tight and neat as I can on my CP, but I much prefer that look to cling wrap

    Bath bomb disaster

    You might want to check the remolded bath bombs by dropping one in water. If they puffed up, it means that the baking soda and citric acid were reacting. You're remolded ones may not be bath bombs anymore

    SQUEE!!!! New soaping space!!!

    So up until now, I've been making soap in my house and my husband has been complaining about how much space my supplies take up.. But now I have my very own soap shed!!!!! It has been in non stop use since I got it :) Still got a few more things to do to get it fully finished like insulation...

    I'm about to give up...

    That looks good! Maybe darken up the scent name text just a little more because it appears to blend a little with the bubbles, but it could be my screen

    I'm about to give up...

    Wishy Washy Bath Co. is easy to read, but the rest of the text in the same font is harder to read because it's smaller. Also, and this is 100% my opinion, the scent name font doesn't seem to go well with the other font. Might I suggest making everything but the Wishy Washy Bath Co. the same...

    Advice for Accelerating FO

    If it's known for soap on a stick, I would ditch the idea of an ITP and do one single color.. Use full water, do the lard swap, drop the stearic, add your FO and color to the oils, use a whisk to incorporate your lye, not a stick blender and soap as cool as you possibly can
