    Ingredients For Sale Alaskan Glacial Mud

    I'm in AZ 85344. I'd love 3-5 pounds for sure, maybe more depending on how much you can ram into a flat rate big box. If you sign up for clicknship on usps.com you can print labels from home and schedule a pickup from your house. Then your little ones stay safe. USPS will also ship you free...

    DOS for the first time! Talk me down off the ledge!

    Aw I'm sorry! Pour some wine/spirits and take a deep breath! Is it too late to collect what you've given away and make them all new years soap? Ie washing away 2021 and welcoming in a new year?

    True! Based on my Halloween soap sales I will need to make 30-40 pounds next August. My daughter will murder me with the scraper if she has to do it all by hand

    Rebatch Lye Crystals

    Omg that is so beautiful! Do you mind sharing what patchouli/fragrance you used? I have been worried about finding a nice one?

    Rebatch Lye Crystals

    Hi! I'm glad you were able to start figuring out the issue! And I'm assuming your rose patchouli soap is the darker one? It's lovely!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Made 2 loaves of Champagne Bubbles. Will be ready for December/New Years. Made with Champagne FO from Nurture Soaps. I don't know how the sorcery was accomplished but it's everrvescent bubbly Sprite. You can smell the bubbles. The whole family loves it.

    Drainpipe soap

    Saw this in a Facebook soap group. PVC drainpipe. Waiting to see how she lined it. Love the shape.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I used Lilac from BB and I found Gooseberry on etsy ( the place 4candles). It was the only place that gave me a proper usage rate on request.. Roughly 1/2 and 1/2 . Smells mostly lilac but its only a week

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Where did you find the books? I have seen some on ebay and on Amazon but I don't know the correct order to read them. And Henry Cavill- no words needed.......

    Soapers Not Using Chelators.

    I feel the same way. The fear of DOS ( after all my hard work and cost of materials) has led to putting sodium gluconate in every batch.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Tbh I've been doing alot recently. We've all been as a family struggling with burnout and dark gloom the last few months so I decided this week- Fall Break was going to be productive if it killed me lol. I've wrapped and labeled 8 loaves and my daughter sorted all the inventory. She scored...

    I'll have to look for that. I'm not even sure why baby bottle liners popped into mind

    That's great advice. I just got a loaf cut @ 1.25". We use a cutter box and scraper. I'll go compare them now.

    Large slab mold recommendations

    I love my Nurture Soap 5 lb deluxe molds. I almost never use the sliding too though. But being able to pull the sides off so I can get 5 lbs out is so helpful. And if I have too the liners stand up well to the 30 minutes in the freezer and they just fall out of the silicone. I was considering...

    DO NOT drop your red mica!!!

    Tis the season for dropsies. My little cup.of green mica slipped out of my hand and into the hot soap jug. Luckily it was supposed to go in there but shiny green mica went everywhere in the short fall. I recommend the bucket soak too so you don't have to bleach your washer. And I feel your pain...

    My apologies I meant size to match the weight on your labels. I see you're doing 1.25"

    Opinion on bar sizing - need photos

    I guess high top is the wrong term then for me. They are more of a "medium top" The issue is I use frosting and embeds. Sometimes both. I've attached my current loaf and another example. When I cut at an inch they still seem like they shrink a ton. I can't afford both an inch and 1.25 inch...
