Link please? What other stuff does he have? Thanks
I was going to box up the 300 soaps today but then this happened when I opened up the window to the East side of the soap room..... that is my soap table- what she is NOT suppose to be on But she is old and I can't say no.
I went on etsy and found it but it wont let me open it now
No worries.. I'll look for him on Etsy. Thank you
Made some more lotion bars... People like em hehe
Also checked on my Castile soaps....... I have to take pics, but I think one has something that could be DOS. My first, if ever..
Patiently waiting for just the right time! This is too early...
its the hardest part
I finally sent soap to family in Arizona. After trying a soft oil bar that has a little palm and a lard-based bar, they’re sold on lard. My MIL, who grew up on a ranch in a very isolated area of South Dakota, also shared her recollections of her mom making lard soap with wood ashes. That soap got the clothes clean, but it wasn’t what they used for bathing. She’s tickled to have “fancy” lard soap.
This is better, and was even nicer before I banged the mold to try to settled down what I was doing at the other end.
Thinking about making soap or at least batching up ten or so buckets and soap tomorrow. Keywords here thinking about it. Sold soap last night and realized how out of soap I am. .
Made soap on Friday, it accelerated fast after I added the scents. Squished it into the molds and set it in the warmer trays. Unmolded on Sat - I will do a brown paper wrap on them and call them Ugly Soaps. They are a bit uneven in the shape department, but looks like good soap.
I made a slab pour and a pull thru pour. not soapy related but I also made a pan of caramel rolls and a loaf of bread. I am ready for bed I think
I cut soap scented with "Leaves" By Natures Fragrance. Def. a fall scent. smells like a cross between pumpkin pie and mulled cider. Normally not my type of scent but this one pulls it off.
thanks I am getting my order from them ready so I am gonna add that one too
I have never made a shaving soap before, but my son asked me to make one for him ... so that's what I did today. All KOH. Another first.
Does it need time to cure? My son made the same request. I’m thinking Christmas.
Well it's said that it does not need to cure. However, I do plan to cure it for a few weeks.
I always cure my shave soaps, after all, they are still Soap.
Makes sense! What’s a good cure length for shave soap?
I found a recipe for a CP shave soap that I tried--its not done curing yet but am wondering if anybody would know if there is a reason that KOH would have to be used.
When I do make them I cure them for 2-6 months depending on how many I have in stock.
Okay, I better make some sooner rather than later if I’m going to give it at Christmas!
