From time to time I pull out my gallon jug of Aloe Vera juice from the fridge to use as my liquid. I use a brand called Aloe Organics that I got from Sam's club or maybe Walmart. Contents: Certified Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate. It is a clear liquid but when I add my lye (same jar I have been using for a while now) it turns sort of white. I stir and stir and then let it sit to cool down to RT. It gets kind of thick and icky looking. Not clear any more. Seems to soap ok but the final product is very soft, goopy even. Eventually the bars harden up on the cure rack....sort of. Has the juice gone off or is this just what happens with Aloe Vera Juice? It really looks nasty in my lye pitcher no matter how long I leave it sit. Any ideas?
