It has been almost a year since I have made soap. I still have lye sealed in a container since the end of October because I had to ship it when I moved. I have never opened it and the container is a plastic one sealed with electrical tape to ensure safety. Would this lye still be good? Should I just buy new lye?

It is going to take me a bit to remember how to do all this and buy new equipment/supplies. It is time I get back into it though. I enjoyed using the soaps I made and have been out for half a year probably.

Love your froggy! Some old lies still work for me. :lol: :lol:

Oh wait......you meant lye - lye. It should be fine if no water has been in contact. I have seen some folks say they had problems.......but try a small 1# batch and see. :D
