Hi, I am a newbie, so sorry for this potentially stupid question.

With all t hese recipes, how do you know if you have too much or too little to fit into your mold. My SO made me a rectangular box mold, the kind where you can then slice with a wire.

How do I calculate how much ingredients I need to fill the mold?

Thanks,
Stacey

height x width x length x .38 = amount of oils needed to fill mold

now this is not exact because if you add extras like oatmeal and such it might give you a tad more finished soap then your log will hold. it also depends on how much liquid you use. but this formula works out pretty darn close.

Or..you can put a plastic bad into the mold, fill it up with water.. and measure how much water you go...:)

I had the same Q so I am glad I saw this.


Would water count in the answer?

like if the answer is 36 oz, does that count for the amount of water in the recipe too, or JUST oils?
