    Cleaning up equipments!

    How do you clean up after soap making? I get lumps and chunks in the measuring cups after i pour it into the mould. Do i just flush them down the drain? I'm afraid that it is going to choke the pipes. Or am i doing something wrong that is causing it to have a mash potato texture?

    Lye solution container

    I am new to CP soap making. I used a #5 plastic container to mix the lye solution. There was a hard crust at the bottom that I couldn't get out with the spatula. Plus, how does one clean up the container? I ended up throwing it away, but that's not right, nor good for the environment.
