Confession ... I hate salt bars. They are all rough on my skin, not that bubbly, I just don't see the appeal
I sewed when my children were young and some of my favorite times were when they were asleep and I could smoke and sew-loved it! Don’t beat yourself up over it-you’ll quit (and still soap!)It's bad and I need to stop
But now that the kiddo isn't breast feeding much, most days only before bedtime....... I find I smoke a lot while I'm soaping (when he's already asleep).
Ugh.. Like whenever my hands are free, waiting for the soap to cook. Bad I know, but it's the worst confession I can think of lol
I guess I should have read that "Just kidding" part before making my last batch. Dr. says I'll be on solid food in no time.I lick the spoon when mixing soap. Just kidding.
I really don't have anything - I always wear gloves and goggles, I'm terribly anal about splitting my batter for coloring and weigh everything into their container, I never take temps, and beveling is my zen zone. Seriously, you need your soaps beveled, you send them my way. I guess that if I have anything to confess it's that after making soap I put my blender head in a container of water and dish soap... and it will sit there uncleaned until the next time I make soap... which may be a week or two later...
Beer is allowed in my soap dungeon. @Primrose feel free to bring your own bourbon
The She-cat is allowed to come into the dungeon periodically to sniff out any potential mice, but she is well behaved and doesn't sit on shelves or jump up on tables. The He-Cat is a jerk who doesn't listen, so he's not allowed.
Beer does it for me.I often find if I start with a couple or martinis, I don't even need to make soap that day.
EwwwI used to like to mow my son's lawn. I liked driving from my house to his house on the riding lawn mower so I could mow his lawn. Until I ran over some rabbits because they didn't know which direction to run and ran right underneath the blades. I was glad when I didn't have to mow his lawn after that.
Same, but I just started selling mine at Farmer's Markets. It gives me an excuse for the molds and tools that I have, and people seem to really love my soaps. The leftovers, I use for myself. That's my confession. I use way too many of my own product, but I love it!I think I'm addicted to making soap. I've made two batches yesterday. One batch today and already planning a batch for tomorrow and the next day.
I now have a lot of soap... And no clue what to do with it!!
Just start with a small batch of a plain, simple recipe. Get that first, low-risk one out of the way and then you'll be ready for some of the things you see on YT....but I’m intimidated!
Yet I make beautiful candles, plant medicine and beads from rose petals but soaping brings me to my knees!
