I think I may be on to something here.. After a week the bars with rice water are firmer than the ones without! This calls for further testing heheheSoapy thing: Given how my soap made with rice water is my hardest soap, considering neither lard nor the two butters amounts are not high at all, I decided to test my theory that the starches in that water contribute to a harder bar.
If I didn't know these were soaps I'd swear they were actual rocks. Wow.
Please don't give up just yet! While I think that soaping 101 has some wonderful tutorials and recipes, I wouldn't have as much faith in the dollar tree soap videos. I think there is too much room for error with the mixed oil blend. I highly recommend searching soaping 101 for a different recipe to start with and trying that first - or search this website. Another option would be to get the book Smart Soapmaking by Anne Watson. She has some basic recipes where all ingredients can be purchased right in your grocery store, and they are good starting points. The Kindle edition is only a few dollars!I have tried two different soaps useing the soaping 101 dollar tree soap videos and bombed huge with both tries being that this was my first and second tries i believe i am just going to walk away from trying to soap
