This week I made soap!
Soap is much more terrifying than making soup
I poured the soap into a cheese slice container and closed the lid to insulate it and when it warmed back up it oosed out the sides, so I put the crumbs back in
I put coffee grounds, oatmeal, peppermint, cinnamon, and nutmag in the soap
Now it has to cure in a paper bag under my bed for a month
This was my first time making soap. I watched lots of soap making videos and found this one realy helpful and read lots of soap recipes. I used lots of precaution when making the soap, wearing rubber gloves, a mask, sunglasses (because I didn't have goggles, you gotta do what you gotta do), I had all of my supplies out before I started, I had the window open and a bottle of white vinger (to neutralize any spilt lye) open. I used this webiste to calculate my recipe. I used olive, coconut and canola oil in my soap. I've used some of the soap crumbs already and I'm pleased with the results and can't wait to make more!
