Hello everyone, I made my very first soap yesterday. I've done so much research and felt ready to make my first batch. I didn't want to mess up any expensive oils and low and behold a whole jar of used cooking oil sat glistening by awaiting its trash can debut. Why not learn how to clean and recycle said oil? My first soap was born. I will use it as a household soap. I already turned two bars of it into whipped laundry soap. I've read so many accounts of how to make laundry soap, some were from freshly made bars, others from well cured bars, so I have no clue if this first laundry batch will be okay or not. No matter what I've had a wonderful time repurposing something that was headed for the landfills.
