Or why is it that the PK oil that you buy is a solid in a liquid-type gallon jug? How the hell do you get it out without heating the entire thing up? Sure wish I had a hot tub now!

K-thanks. :)

It showed up that way after sitting all day on the hot UPS truck. I bought it a while ago, and keep wanting to try it, but just keep putting it aside because it is solid as a rock. I bought babassu, which is hard, but not like that! That liquifies quickly in the sun or a bit in the sink with warm water.

Your's is not like that??? I don't like the idea of regular PK, anyway. Can't wait for winter, when it is below zero here. :lol:

I really don't want to use PK, but thought I should try it. I ordered it from Soapers Choice.

I found my true love in coconut oil, so I've never tried the PKO...don't know if I want to now. Hmmmm..

Right here, silly!
This is what I do for pesky situations like this: I take the plastic bottle and slit it open from top to bottom with a box cutter, then I transfer the hard oil to gallon zip lock bags or Rubbermaid containers and store in the fridge. I had to this when I ordered Babassu from Soapers Choice once.

I personally love PKO and have been using it a lot in my soaps lately.

SimplyE - I feel your frustration!! Been there, cursed it with the same words. :lol: :lol:

Same as Irishlass, I slit the bottle, chunked it out and put in another container.

Thanks for the "sympathy"! What a royal pain in the a*$! Thanks for your tips. Was thinking about repackaging myself. What a waste of a container/packaging! :roll:
