    Thank you! No color or fragrance, just soap. I just have very small air bubbles in it, but I know that I blended it a little too long just to be sure it was mixed well enough. I told my husband that the soap looked good and he said, "What does that mean? How the soap supposed to look?":)

    I asked my husband to look at my soap and all he said was "Does it clean?"
    Welcome!

    Hi Patrice; welcome to the world of soap! You're well on the way to a full addiction (along with the rest of us)!

    That is a gorgeous loaf of soap! After all the swirled and scented bars I've made over the years - it's always a good pure plain jane soap that thrills
    me the most.

    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Thank you very much! I have been looking at different videos of elaborate beautiful soaps, and but I too was excited that my first simple loaf turned out so well!

    Looking good! Congratulations on your first soap loaf and cut bars. I look forward to hearing how they are after cure. And also to your future projects.

    Hi Patrice,
    Congratulations ions on your soap! It looks great.

    I gave my DH two radically different soaps for him to compare and his response was: I can’t tell the difference.

    He is no longer in my tester group. :)

    Thank you! So far so good! I will certainly update after the soap has cured.
