Hi everyone! So glad I found this forum! I’m new to soap making and am loving learning all about it and reading all your great tips and advice ! This is the first cold process soap I’ve ever made. I made it on Tuesday and cut some of it today. Some of it’s a little soggy still so put it back in silicone mould for a little longer. But I’m really happy how they’ve turned out so far. One is eucalyptus and the blue one is Cornish sea. I think this is going to be an addictive hobby and can’t wait to get more creative!!!

They look great, good job! Now I’ll tell you what was told to me when I first posted here and didn’t know any better:

Don’t let the soaps stay on that metal tray too long. Put paper or cloth or something plastic underneath it. Apparently anything other than stainless steel will cause DOS (dreaded orange spots).
