Miadrianel Candles Posted November 2, 2009 Report Share Posted November 2, 2009 Hello everyone!Ok I've been reading a lot on how to make soap with lye and have found a local supply of lye in 50 lbs bags. This will be my first batch of soap so I have a couple of questions before I get into it.First of all, on what kind of container I can store at least 25 pound of lye? I will be splitting the 50 pounds with somebody else. Ok about the oils. Since this is my first batch of soap I read somewhere that some store bought oils can work. What do I have to look for with these oils.I plan on buying Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil(will probably order) and or Crisco shortening, I also have on hand Grape seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil by the gallon. I would like to use these on my recipes too.Finally can you guys direct me to a few sites that have some simple recipes to start out that include the before mentioned oils? I have a few simple recipes that are recommended to start out with CP soap but I would like to see more if possible. Guys thanks in advanced for your help I think I will be asking a lot of question from here on! So any tips one advice or sugestions before starting out I appreciate.Dan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
