I got carried away with the red oxide and my pastel pink swirl turned a deep red. So I added more batter..... still red. The soap turned out beautiful, but the majority of the soap is a deep red. I know from past experience that this will stain washcloths permanently. I see other soaps with bright colors. So my question is: should I sell this with a warning on the box, or just give it to friends with a verbal warning? Or do I just worry too much?? I would love to know how others feel about washcloth-staining colors in soap.

Well, it isn't the business section but I would say that selling something that you know is not what it should be is never a good business practice.

You could rebatch it or use it as confetti in an uncoloured batch

I have a warning label on all my handmade soaps due to possible staining when using dark and/or colored soaps

Thanks. I've been avoiding dark colors for this reason but see dark colored soap for sale often and wondered what others did. Although this hot pink/red color was not intended it's still very pretty.
