    Room temperature soaping

    I soap at such a low temp my hard butters stay white not clear. Even after I add my oils. I use the heat transfer method, let sit for maybe 2-3 minutes and then use my stick blender until the hard butters are broken up and mixed with the lye then hand whisk my oils in.

    This is the method I use. Super easy, I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I soaped with strong earl grey tea. I used a heavy dose of white clay to lighten it up. Smells great and I can’t wait for the cut.

    Zany's no slime castile

    More Zany’s soap made with Sam’s club OO EVOO on the right, mild OO on the left. 30 hours old. Made at the exact same time under the same conditions, I measured everything to the gram. 30 hours is too long in the mold, I should have cut at 12-18 hours. The soap at 30 hours is slightly brittle...
