    Soap bar that cuts grease

    Most of everything I am finding refers to a liquid form of soap to cut grease and diesel. I am trying to make something like this in a bar as a gift for the hard working men in my life. Is it possible to do and if so; what would you suggest?

    Panty hose for what exactly?

    Are you using both the micro fiber and the planer? I tried the microfiber and it is smoothing a lot and making it very shiny. That is with it dry. Should I wet it a bit?

    Panty hose for what exactly?

    The nursing outfits of that time frame: bombshells. Thank you for your work as a nurse. That is one of my ultimate goals.

    Panty hose for what exactly?

    Panty hose for what exactly?

    sounds like it would work almost the same as a cheese cloth? I have a ridiculously expensive one still in the packaging, no natural oats milk for me yet :(

    Oil on top of cold pour soap

    Oil on top of cold pour soap

    I started to unmold the sides to see and it will unmold but I don't feel its ready yet. I do think it overheated! YIKES. I am trying to find some sodium lactate somewhere near me and having no luck. I guess I will have to order it. I will try this recipe for my next go around. I have been making...

    Oil on top of cold pour soap

    I just made my first batch of soap and it has been sitting for 16 hours. I only had it wrapped in a towel and over my vent (heat is on blast) but I checked it and there is 1/2 teaspoon of oil on top of my soap. I poured it to one side to measure it then tilted the mold so it would run back down...
