Scrub a Dub Dub

Here's some pictures from the last two weeks of the soap fest. My soap rack is almost full, I have two racks left on the bottom. The soap needs to cure for about four weeks before I package it. Top Row-Lancelot, 2nd Row- Goat's milk Oats and Honey, 3rd row-Lychee Fruit and Moonbeam Musk, 4th row-Lavish Lover, 5th row-Sexy Thang and Lovely 6th row- Ice Cap.



Every soap created is a surprise when it's time to unmold it. Once I pour the soap into the mold, it will sit under blanket for a day. My favorite part is unwrapping and cutting the fresh soap. In a perfect world, all batches of soap would unmold hard, smooth and pleasing to the eye. It doesn't always work that way. Sometimes, during the saponifaction process, the fragrance will morph or burn off, the dyes will change color or completely disappear. This is one of my favorites I made last week. Goat's milk, honey and oats. The milk and honey swirl came out good and the fragrance stuck.


The most interesting bar of the week, Moonbeam Musk. The dark blue color didn't appear until after I unmolded the soap. I think the color, although a surprise, fits the name.


My least favorite part of soapmaking? The cleaning up! I've gotten better about it during the last few weeks. If I just leave the mess after making a batch, I don't want to go back into the soap shack. Soap will be glued to the pots, stick blenders, spatulas and bowls. I've started cleaning up after every batch. Now, when I walk in the SS, everything is shining and ready to soap.

Wow! Beautiful! How do I get some? Do you make them All by yourself? Sounds like fun though.

mmmmmmm. makes me want to eat it.

i read in the paper today that Gen X'ers would rather eat soap than drive a minivan.

sersly, i'd eat your soap before i drove a minivan.

Thanks, Bold.

My husband bought me a brand new mini van a couple months ago. It's a "stow and go" model. All the seats fold down and I can fit three bikes in the back.

I accused him of choosing a mini van to make me look like a soccer Mom so men aren't interested.

He said he was going to find a "Proud parent of an honor roll student" to slap on my bumper.

Where oh where do I buy some moonbeam soap. I MUST have soap with moonbeams in it!

That's quite a cool thing you have going there. So who is your distributor?
