I almost forgot to ask how soon can you wrap your soap. I used material. I dont think i would wrap as soon as I did I was just trying to fool around with a wraper

Really nice soap! :) I wish I made cuts as nice as yours.

I usually don't wrap my soap (put it in gift baskets or store it in my clothing drawers), but if I do, I wait the usual four weeks to make sure it's totally cured and won't shrink anymore.

A newbie answer....someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what I do. Hope it helps. :)

Absolutely gorgeous goat! I have made 2 goat soaps so far and I have yet to get it to such a beautiful light color! How did you do it?

Was the GM at trace the trick?

That looks great!!! I usually do not wrap my soap until I ship. I leave it cure as long as I can. The longer the cure the better the lather the better the soap...

Very nice! I have never used aloe instead of water. You have inspired me to try...off to Wal-Mart.

Goat soap...y'all

These soaps look wonderful. I bet they smell wonderful, too. I have only made a few GM batches, but I do what you do...add at trace. I think it makes for a whiter bar. I can't wait to try out my soap in the shower...but I have a few weeks to go on the cure...Nice pics. too!

g/m soap

really great looking soap, congrats! i keep saying i'm going to try g/m again, and you've inspired me to do so. some my results were scary looking!

couple questions:

did you use canned or fresh goat's milk? room temp?

when you added the lye to the aloe, did you ice-bath it?

did you add the g/m at light or heavy trace?

anything else i should know?

thanks for the inspiration!

I would love to know how you add this goats milk at trace? Does it curdle? Do you use goats milk ice cubes? And how much do you add?
