    Crumbly bottoms on soap

    I had a similar thing happen a few months ago when it was Winter (and it gets very cold down here in Tassie) - and our wood heater was broken so we were relying on the heat pump. My soaps became crumbly on the bottom and sides like they weren't gelling properly or something. As soon as the wood...

    Mission Rebatch

    The two times I've rebatched using all different kinds of soap with various scents and colours, they ended up smelling awful even though I tried to mask the scent with something similar. I'd never do it again. Both soaps looked really pretty though. I vote confetti also.

    Thread titles and my very strange mind.

    Is my first candle alright? Relax ... I realise you're new to this but, yes, he's perfectly fine ... melting normally, skin nice and waxy ... now let's wrap him up and put him to bed. You'll be a pro by the time you have your next candle.

    Well, there you go, I'm 50 years old and I never knew you shouldn't wash "down there" with soap. I missed something in my education somewhere ... :razz: I must say, though, that peppermint oil can give quite the zing ... not unpleasant though ... :o

    To saponify or not with this oil

    I did have a soap go rancid which has made me very wary. I am suspicious that it was the brown oxide colouring though, rather than an oil, because the soap started weeping only where the brown colour was and smelt yucky - ruined the whole soap.
