    i am scared myself! those soaps are still sitting on their tray, on the lowest shelf of my curing rack. out of sight. i just don't want to see them, don't want to deal with them. i think they belong in the trash. soon... real soon...

    hmmm... it's not that i wasn't thinking of rebatching, but... the damage is pretty heavy, oils and gaping teeth everywhere. but you were right, maybe i will rebatch this one and just use it for my personal use. hate wasting ingredients anyway.

    I've never heard of rebatching. God so much to learn.
    My aunt just called in a panic she miscalculated the oils in her just made batch and is 8ozs short of olive oil. She used 3.99 lye. I'm so green idk what to tell her :(

    Slowly melt the batch, add the oils , stick blend so lye can react. Plop it back in the mold.

    Hahaha yea. The dents are from me pressing my fingers into it and not thinking to take a picture until after. Had the soap been fully cured and that color, I would have been amazed. Because it kinda looked like a galaxy. But I had a hibiscus acidity mishap and . . . Yea .. oil was trapped at the BOTTOM of the mold ! Hahaha

    I DID however rebatch this log and it turned out a rustic charcoal color. Havent tested the lather yet but its curing like normal soap as we speak. And smells like fresh wheatgrass. Guess it won out.
