If someone can tell me if I'm doing something wrong, it would be greatly appreciated. I have read all the threads on using this product and no one mentioned the issue I have.

I will preface this with the fact that I'm very bad at math, so it's very possible mathematically I've done something wrong. I have Tetrasodium EDTA from LotionCrafter, NOT Disodium EDTA.

Last night I mixed my EDTA to make a 39% solution. 39 grams EDTA w/ 61 grams of distilled water. The solution was covered overnight to prevent evaporation.

Today I was going to make a 1 pound test batch. I mixed 8 grams of my 39% EDTA solution with the rest of the water for my recipe, I then added my lye. My calculation was .5 X 627 (total weight of recipe) / 39 = 8 grams. The water became thick and milky whitish. Is this normal? I'm extremely frustrated, probably more than I should be, but that's a whole other story.

Thank you!!!
