Crocs are not closed in shoes. They have holes to allow water in and out as they were originally designed as water shoes but I guess you knew that.Do you use anything more than socks when soaping? Until now I’ve only used socks.
Would a pair of Crocs work?
This craft is one that forces you to be patient and work carefully. Some people don't/won't learn to do even this.Okay. I guess they will work then.
I’ve made some adjustments to my process to prevent the same from happening again.
I’m not sure if I’m a patient person, but I love the attention to detail that is required to make a decent bar of soap (I’m not there yet). Since starting out some week ago I’ve had a detailed list of instructions that I follow every time. I make small adjustments to that list as I learn more.This craft is one that forces you to be patient and work carefully. Some people don't/won't learn to do even this.
I have an old pair of Stan Smith that I don’t use.For the record, the closed clogs are fine but do you have an old pair of boots you can use? It would be preferable to buying some new shoes for soaping purposes unless you work in a hospital or a kitchen of something.
Unless they're uncomfortable or have some extreme holes, you may want to save some money and utilize those. the money you save could also be reallocated to soaping what-nots or something else. As for patience, it's a good thing to have. Many of us are not kidding when we have said a 12 week old soap is most times, superior to a 6 week old one. Three months isn't too long a wait anywaysI have an old pair of Stan Smith that I don’t use.
I'm guilty of cooking and soaping in the same clothes I go out in. Most of the time, I have had protection on.I never soap, cook, clean, garden, or do most potentially messy things in clothes that I intend to leave the house in. That is just inviting trouble.
Ditto the above for me, only I'll have to change the word 'soaped' to 'soap', since I always soap in short sleeves and with bare feet. [the reason for which I shall explain shortly....]I'll admit it - I've soaped in bare feet and a T-shirt. I don't wear a long-sleeved shirt, because if I get soap batter on my bare arm I notice it immediately and I can wash it off. But if I have it on my sleeve I might not notice it and I might get it on my face or on a child or a pet.
