using other liquids


 Share

Recommended Posts

When subbing other liquids for water in a recipe do you use the same amount as the water listing no matter what liquid you use? I don't see in Soapcalc where you can change the liquid.

I've been seeing a lot of people use different liquids. Some I'm interested in trying are aloe juice and beer. I've read that beer adds lots of lather. And I would think aloe juice would add softness for skin.

I'd love to hear from soapers here what you think about these alternatives.

You sub the liquid of choice with the water, if you use 6oz of tomato juice , take that amount from your water.

IME berry juices go brown

Beer is a great additive, make sure it is totally flat before you use it , you will get a volcano when you add the lye if it is not flat.

Aloe juice is nice

Pureed carrots make a very nice soap

Buttermilk or milk is a nice addition

Pureed cucumber makes a nice soap

etc,etc,

I have an open can of beer in the fridge now. Hope I can use it this weekend.

Withe aloe or the others you listed here will I have to add a preservative of some sort?
