Soap making lesson #16


Recommended Posts

Check the units (grams, oz, troy-ounces...) on your scale.

Check them for every ingredient.

I was making a nice batch, but in the middle spilled oil on my scale. Wiped it up and continued. Got all the oils & butters measured and melted and gee, it looked like a lot!

Realized my scale units had been switched (. Had no idea how much of what was in there. Was even afraid to keep the lye sol'n I had made an hour earlier cause I hadn't checked the units when I measured that out either....

Lye sol'n got washed down the drain, oils are sitting in an old milk jug that I pulled out of the recycling, waiting patiently for trash day!
