    Reusing silicone for food?

    Good to know, since I bought a bunch of silicone molds for the purpose of soap making, but ended up not liking how the mold would bow in certain places, and this drove me nuts. I've used these molds only once or twice, and would hate to discard of them simply because I didn't like them for...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I made castile soap and lavender soap, and I'm thrilled! Not gonna be easy to let the castile cure for a year, though.

    Sweet mistake. Can I fix this?

    Thank you all for your help. It's good to know this isn't an unsafe soap. I think I'll go with PinkCupcake's suggestion to use syrup. Or maybe I'll just continue to stick with honey. I've tried using the soap, and it has a lovely exfoliating feel to it, and the worst part about this...

    Sweet mistake. Can I fix this?

    I made soap a few days ago, adding some sugar to boost bubbles. Usually, I use honey because it seems a lot more wholesome to me - but just this once, I thought I'd be really cool and use sugar. And then the next day, I used some of the crumbs for washing my hands. Wow, so gritty! And now my...

    Bacon grease

    I am looking to do the same thing, too. I've googled beer and bacon grease soap, and have discovered that some say it smells like pretzels! You're not looking to use beer too, are you?

    Long SaffireBlue order delays

    The first order I placed with SB took a month to arrive. Subsequent orders have been better, taking 5-8 business days to ship. SB's only redeeming quality is their super low prices on almost everything compared to other suppliers, so that's why I stick with them. I am not making soap to...

    Any writers out there?

    I'm no poet, so forgive the simplicity of my haiku. oils, lye and fragrance blend, saponify and cure fragrant clean showers

    Any writers out there?

    I too, started a novel a few years ago, and while I still work on it regularly, I'm nowhere near finishing. Part of what stops me from just finishing it, are the discouraging advice out there that a first novel has to be 100,000 or fewer words. My novel looks like it will be duology at...

    How is this for a basic shampoo bar recipe?

    I've been no 'poo since November 2013, so I'm not sure how long of a transition period I would need. I followed the suggestions in this thread a few months ago to make my bars, but I made them 5% superfatted, so I'll make the next batch 3% and see what happens. :-) Thanks for the suggestion. I...

    How is this for a basic shampoo bar recipe?

    I've made shampoo bars twice (two different recipes) now, and have found them to leave a waxy residue on the length of my hair. My roots end up very clean, but the length gets very waxy, and more I wash it, the waxier it gets. Does anybody else have this issue with shampoo bars?

    Card Making

    I can see it before me, a picket fence in the background, flowers in the middle layer, and a little girl walking her puppy in the front. Or any kind of other set of layers. You could do almost anything with it. :)

    Card Making

    Wow... I was very much into card making and scrapbooking about 10-12 years ago, and while I still love it, I'm not nearly as involved as I used to be. I was a Stampin'Up! demonstrator, and I have not a sales bone in my body. Needless to say, I can make fantastic cards, but I can't sell a...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I picked up soaping supplies today, including shea butter, cocoa butter, a selection of essential oils, coconut oil, and rice bran oil as well as a jar of lye. This is gonna be an awesome summer of soaping!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    After washing my hair with the Soap Queen pH balanced shampoo bar recipe for 6 weeks now, I have discovered that the more it cures, the more of a residue it leaves on my hair, and now the washing process leaves my hair dirtier/stickier than it is before I wash it. Today I decided to look up...
