    I wanted to close the other thread and get everyone's feedback on two topics:

    1. What is still broken or not working as you want at Soapmaking Friend?
    2. What features are missing or need more work at Soapmaking Friend?

    Sorry, haven't had a chance to check it out. Some sections say I can't respond there. (what inspired your business name for one)
    (You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)
    Whatever that is about. Lol I'm a 'new' member since 2013. :)

    I've been using it for quite a while and don't really bother to note down those small quirks it has lol. But there are. I'll get back to this thread within the day.

    I just looked at it, and it's missing a way to use non-water additives. I use aloe juice in most of my recipes, and there's no way to add that. It's probably the same lye-wise as any other watery liquid, but if we're sharing recipes, that would have to go in the notes.
    I doubt I'll use this feature; I have SoapMaker 3 and am quite happy with it, so I make my recipes from there. I realize that not everyone wants to pay for a program, so this might be useful for others.

    Until I read this, I hadn't tried the new calculator. . . Thought I would play with it for a little bit.
    I will get back to you with my findings, as I sort out & find the different aspects of it.
    - - - I have noticed that the calculation of the lye weight is different than another calculator.

    On another note, to save a recipe, I had to Register.
    I went thru the Captcha, but it does nothing when I click on the Register button.

    I’m sorry, but I’ve been chronically ill and bedridden for more than three years and I haven’t been able to make soap.

    I use soapmaking friend exclusively and I love it the only thing that I think it's missing at this point would be A way to list out the inci names for the ingredients we selected in the order from the most to the least so we can copy/ paste into labels

    The only other thing I could think of is I would love to be able to put batches of all my products into soap making friend and not just soap. Right now I have my lotion batches in a completely different tool and all of my other Products in and excel spreadsheet and it would be nice to just at least batch them all in the same place

    The only thing I have seen for quite some time is the "liquids other than water" issue.
    I do use a split liquid fairly often of water, aloe vera juice and /or vinegar.

    It's just the evil scientist in me...:smallshrug:
    BWHAA HA HA....


    I do usually use my own spreadsheet though. Just my own E.S thing as well.

    I haven't checked out Soapmaking friend, so I can't really be of much help. Sorry
