Lye Paranoia


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just had one batch with lye holes and now I'm paranoid about my soap making tactics!

I have been testing all the soaps that I have made recently to see if they are ok. I'm getting sick from tasting soap!! They taste bitter, but do not sting, at least not much.

I have used my own soap in the bath, and NEVER have a problem with it on my skin.

My bad batch had droplets on the surface, i tested these and yes they had lye. Could it be that when I use the refrig method to not gel my soap that these droplets form, but they will seep back into the soap???

I just don't want to give anyone bad soap!

Thanks much, any help is much appreciated, Vanessa
