  1. Smells wonderful! Smells summer! I used 1oz to a 2.5lb cp soap, no ricing, didnt seize, no acceleration, and the best of all, it survived the saponification.
  2. the tallow made me think of going vegetarian because of the smell. Lol I got the leaf lard cheap, 0.60/lb so I decided to give it a try. The hard part is chopping the lard in small pieces but maybe the next time I can ask my local butcher to have it ground for me so its easier.
  3. this one is from the beef fat scraps, first render. Rendering the tallow makes me think of going vegetarian but I love meat so much. Lol.
  4. hello friends! I called a local meatplant and I was able to get the leaf lard and suet at a cheap price. And I rendered the leaf lard yesterday the first time, and the crumbles tastes good. Lol. I let it harden outside and its really white but still has the mild smell to it. So here is a picture of my second render. I just got it done. Question: will the smell of the lard die during saponification process?
  5. @Sarah S its a little stinky but bearable. I cracked the window so the stink comes out. It took me maybe 6 hours on high. I will still have to cook it again because it still looks dirty.
  6. thank you @TallTayl! I placed it in crockpot and and put it on high, but I also added water per your suggestion. I'll be on the look out for kidney fats and give it a try. Thank you so much!
  7. Thank you! So when its white and clean that means its good?
  8. hello everyone! I got scrap beef fats from our local meatshop and would like to render it for making soap. How many times do I have to melt it and strain it? Should I add water when I render it? Thank you in advance
  9. I have a suggestion for an inkjet printer. its epson ecotank, that's what we have at home. The printer is expensive upfront but the ink lasts a long time. I got it last year and have printed almost 4,000 pages both colored and black and I still use the same ink since I bought it last year. Ink is refillable and the bottle costs $17 which could last thousands of pages for black
  10. 😳 I think she is trying to save money by making the candles herself but if she gets in trouble, it'll be more money she has to dish out than getting a safe burning tested candles from you. I'm curious but, how did she price it? are the candles she made priced cheaper than the ones she got from you?
  11. thank you! thank you! thank you @Candybeefor clearing this out for me. I checked the ingredients and it didnt sound like olive oil or lard or coconut oil, and after reading your answer, it made much more sense to me. Thank you so so much!
  12. Good evening everyone! I'd like to ask, how is a glycerin soap made? I went to a craft show and a lady is selling soap, and the label says creamy handmade glycerin soap. Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays to all!
