Crusty Lye?


Recommended Posts

well,. i went ahead and made soap with it. I thought I added enough color but you cant really tell the swirl from the rest of the soap.. unless it lightens up in the oven?? The stuff took forever to trace and I think it swirled when it was too runny :-(


Im not doing so well at this soap thing..

heather, FYI, when lye sits around out in the air, it will absorb moisture. So that's all that happened to your lye while it was sitting out. it was still okay to use, as you found out.

Don't get bummed. One more batch under your belt. Think of the experience you gained.
