    nah, at the very least keep if for posterity. Or to scare the kids/burgalars away from your soaping stuff. The pics at the very least are useful for a trouble shooting demo. I'd never seen something quite like that in any of the books.

    It looks nice, even though its not what you wanted. How did you get the soap to do two different looks. You mentioned piping, what is that?

    Almond Milk, Honey & Oat Soap, which overheated!

    Current PH 9-10

    Zap test - Didn't Zap

    Has strong smell of Ammonia, but isn't burnt on inside

    My beautiful honeycomb embeds melted

    It's now chopped into chunks waiting for Kitty Litter (hubby promised to pick up today).

    Local council advised to dispose of in regular trash?

    How does anyone else dispose of their bad batches?

    Making Bath Bombs for next few days, 'til I get my Soapy Mojo back. :(

    If its not zappy, just toss it in the trash. Soap is biodegradable.

    I will say, it has all the makings of a very nice soap. It was a solid design concept and well executed from a "technique" standpoint. If you could just call in the Exxon Valdez clean-up team....

    Open dictionary, turn to "partial gel." Oh look! It's my mulberry soap!

    You should put your new soap into the picture gallery section of the forum. I'm sure we'd all love to see what it looks like when you've cut it. :)
