Have you checked your junk folder some of my email notifications from the site go to my junk folder for some reason others dont.How long does it take for registration emails to come through? I registered last night but haven't received anything yet.
It's in there- both regular and high oleic canola oil.I love this! What a great calculator!
Would adding canola oil be an option? I've run into recipes using it, and have incorporated it into some of mine.
We have that. When you search, the "include oils" and "exclude oils" is ignored if not selected.It would be great to search the recipe database to limit oils selected to omit certain oils
The calculation is (height x depth x width) x .40 = amount of oils in ounces (assuming full water amounts).My calculation of the mold size was 120 oz and then I entered dimensions instead (super cool feature, btw) and it says it is only 86 oz.
Manually I am calculating volume and then converting cubic inches to ounces, so I'm curious as to the method the calculator is using to determine volume.
We have the search, as noted above.Yes a search by oils option. With the selector for you to select your oils. Then you could have a selection of how to search. Initail default option 'Any' where it has to have at least one of the oils listed and can have an oil not listed. 'All' where it has to have at all of the oils listed and can have an oil not listed. 'Exclude' where it cannot have any of the oils listed. 'Only' where it has to have at least one of the oils listed and can not have an oil not listed. 'Exactly' where it has to have at least all oils listed and can not have an oil not listed.
If 'Any' or 'All' is selected you can have a default unchecked checkbox for 'Exclude other' where, when checked, a separate list of oils to exclude can be made.
I will find the information on that and get it added (unless someone has it handy?)Add glycerine to the custom additives list for us Shaving Soap makers
The name will be changed to something like "gentle soap".I still think the eczema recipe in the list of sample recipes should be either removed or renamed. Soap cannot cure eczema.
That's for hand written notes you may need to make during the soap making process. If it's not wanted, we can take it out.So I just printed out a recipe of mine that I'd saved and the PRINTED page has a section for "Additional Ingredients" just above the "Notes" but I can't seem to get to that section in the online SMF?
I will look into adding an explanation- I'm not sure at this time of the exact explanation so I'll have to check.More of a question about how the water discount when including an addative like clay. Is the water discount there for you to mix the clay with? or is there another purpose, maybe an explination on the calc page would be helpful for idiots like me who dont understand the meaning of this
The developer is looking at this today- it seems to be happening randomly to some people.Yup, no emails at all.
I'm not sure what you're saying here, so please bear with me. Can you explain what you mean? Thank you!BUG(?): When checking both NaOH and KOH Masterbatch, no water adjustment is made for the NaOH.
When calculating a NaOH or KOH soap and use the Masterbatch option, it calculates the "liquid required" correctly.
Thanks!The name will be changed to something like "gentle soap".
Personally, I like the notes section and the spot to write in any other additives. In fact, I would add another line or two there.That's for hand written notes you may need to make during the soap making process. If it's not wanted, we can take it out.
What's in the "palm shortening"? I assume it's not 100% palm, so that might be a tough one.It's a great tool, and I really like that as you change weights of oils, it recalculates and displays the new numbers. My input:
Keep up the great work on this tool!
- make a radio button that allows you to make a batch without fragrance (I play with volume without wanting to use up precious essential oils, and putting 0% is a cheat, not a solution)
- add palm shortening as an oil option
- what does "INS" stand for in the breakdown on the left side?
- the attribute chart is super helpful with the ideal minimum and maximums. However, some way to let people know how to *improve* lather, hardness, etc. would save a lot of time and help encourage beginners playing with ingredients
Ah, that makes sense. I wonder how we could fix that, without breaking the regular masterbatching. I suppose quite a few people masterbatch both KOH and NaOH for hybrid soap?When calculating a NaOH or KOH soap and use the Masterbatch option, it calculates the "liquid required" correctly.
When calculating a hybrid soap, AND using Masterbatch for both NaOH and KOH, it does not calculate the "liquid required" correctly. The water in the NaOH masterbatch is added, and you end up with too much water.
I keep trying to complete my registration on the calculator so I can test saving etc, but I never get the email to complete the registration. The calculator portion is working great!We just launched a huge update that includes the recipe database. So I thought we would start fresh again.
- What is broke?
- What don't you like?
- What do we need to add?
Right, but it isn't doing it correctly on both a slab I made and a cylinder. I notice sometimes when I enter in mold dimensions instead of mold capacity, the capacity number "sticks" and doesn't adjust size.The calculation is (height x depth x width) x .40 = amount of oils in ounces (assuming full water amounts).
Thanks for reporting , this should be fixed nowI haven't been on here in more than a month and haven't scrolled back to see if it's come up, or if anyone is still experiencing the same....
My saved recipes, when you reload them, still revert to oils total (that's some other number, not my actual previous oils total) even though I saved it with the mold capacity button on, and saved in a particular amount.
I keep needing to readjust it since when we started.
It's great to see the changes though.. Good job you guys!
