My first Lard soap, I made at the request of a friend who wanted a soap made without coconut oil, because of an allergy. i got a new stick blender(the attachment fit onto my current stick blender so I now have a backup motor) I also got a new mold. & used new spatulas that I already had ordered. plus new equipment, I changed the wire on my cheese cutter, & covered the whole base with plastic wrap. The FO is Strawberry.
