    suggestions for dog soap

    I'm looking at making a bar shampoo for dogs that will be hard but also make good amount of lather to get down to the skin on double-coated breeds and help remove loose hair.

    burlap and jute in CP soap

    I'm wanting to make a mechanic's scrubby bar for friends/family as Christmas gifts and was trying to think of different things to add besides something like poppy seeds or pumice. I got to thinking that both burlap and jute are scrubby and maybe those might work but the lye might eat them up...

    Kind of new to soap, have a couple questions

    I'm fairly familiar with soap making and using, but also know that soapcalc is only kind of a guideline and the true values may not always be as the calculations say, especially if you're using liquids other than water and other additives. I've done some research into the oils and...

    Hello from TN!

    Hi, I've made a few soaps over the last few years but am still very new to it. I've made some decent soaps, a couple awesome ones, and a few that didn't turn out so great. Don't know why I didn't join a soaping forum sooner. I'm excited to now be part of this community an start learning from...
