    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...

    In search of an HE (High Efficiency) laundry soap recipe

    While I know 100% coconut soap with 0% superfat is considered to be an excellent laundry soap, how many of you have used this for HE washing machines? My bottle of detergent is almost done, so I want to make some soon. What I do know about HE soap, is that it should be low in bubbles, or...

    The evils of quick oats

    I want to make oatmeal soap today and have looked around for recipes and inspiration. One thing that is often stressed is NO QUICK COOK OATS (yes, this is sometimes underlined or capitalized to stress its importance). But why not? Is something wrong with quick cook oats? I have...

    Using aloe butter in soap

    My soaping buddy and I have discovered soap making a few months ago, and are hoping to keep things vegan and eco friendly by avoiding animal fats and any oil that might endanger rainforests anywhere. Of course, this means tallow and palm oil is out, and so is beeswax. Some of our soaps are...

    The dog ate my lotion bar...

    Yes, the title says it all. I'm a new soap maker, and my projects are very hit and miss. Last week, I made some lotion bars, and for the first time, I felt I made something really good full of good stuff, beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, etc... mostly organic. I put one on the...

    New soaper from Canada

    Hey everyone, I thought I'd introduce myself. My name comes from another hobby of mine, rubber stamping. Sadly I don't stamp as much as I used to. It creates a real mess in the house to stamp, and paper stuff migrates. It could also stand for my writing hobby, which was traditionally...
