:yay:

My husband and I were shopping today and he asked what I wanted since it's my birthday and I said how about a crockpot and he is like what for (cause we have one already) and I am like well I just need a crockpot but it's not gonna be for cooking rofl! He rolled his eyes and bought it for me lol. Soaping is a sore subject with him because he feels it is such a waste of time. Even when I show him orders that I get he still feels it is a waste of time :). At least I got my crockpot and now I can start cphp woohoo!

:yay:good for you! I think my crock pot has to be up there in the top 5 of by best investments for equipment. I've made gallons of LS as well as hp with it and I was just telling my daughter I needed to buy two more because I don't care for the double boiler method of making LS and I should be able to handle at least three going simultaneously! :laugh2: :laugh2: Have fun with you crock pot:grin2:

I have never tried the crockpot method for Liquid Soap. I use the double boiler method and I haven't made any LS this summer because it is SO hot here and I can't stand the thought of the stove going for 3 hours. I really liked the way my LS turned out in the double boiler, is there a difference in how the soap turns out using the crockpot method vs double boiler? I really want to make LS but I was thinking I would have to wait until the fall!

Also, what size crockpot did you get and how much LS does it make?

My crockpot is not very big as I am only making small batches right now. It is a 4 quart one. I have never done the boiler method so I am not sure what the differences are.

Of course I had everything ready to go to soap early when I realized that I did NOT have a scale omg lol! So, I conned my husband into running to wal-mart with me under the pretense of purchasing some binders (I am one of the VPs for our school PTA this year and need them) and in the process I threw a kitchen scale worth $50 in the buggy rofl! Then I piled on the school uniforms for the two boys so he had no clue the scale was there, God love him:laugh2: !

So, tomorrow I plan on soaping my new Lime Crystal Kisses fo :drool: that I got from FOH that I absolutely love and I hope it comes out great!

Oh and of course I had to throw in the movie 300 since it came out today and there is nothing like a movie full of half-naked gorgeous men running around!! I made my husband take me to the theater for that one rofl.

I've never used the db method so I don't really know...I should have said that I didn't think I would like the db method and so I've always made in with the crock. I believe my crock is 6 quarts and I can make a gallon and 32.oz with it. I dilute on direct heat. I don't see any reason why there would be a difference in the soap if you used a crock pot.
