    My third time making this FO - it's very popular. I 'washed' these to remove the soda ash from the tops.

    I ran water over them and 'rubbed' the tops with my fingertips until the ash was gone. Hoping it won't grow back! o_O

    @KiwiMoose I nearly spit out my coffee this morning! This soap matches our old bath of our new house! No offense, but the color scheme in the bath was a bit overwhelming and too psychedelic for our taste and was the first room to get the sledgehammer. Truly, I love it in your soap, though, and can imagine the scent. I'm a big rhubarb gardener and eater.

    Gorgeous soap KiwiMoose. You were not kidding Zing, your old bathroom was quite psychedelic and would have matched Kiwi's soap well. :eek:. I like color but that bathroom would not have been one I would have loved.

    Wowsa! That bathroom is pretty out there! I'm a fan of fairly psychedelic colour schemes - but that's a bit OTT.

    OMG! I would have taken a sledge hammer to it as well! I think it would have made me dizzy everytime I entered that room!

    @KiwiMoose Gorgeous soap! I hope to be able to make beautiful soap like that one day! :)
