Figuring out soap pot size


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been covered but I couldn't seem to find what I was looking for..

How can I figure out what size soap pot (bucket) to use, related to batch size.

I mostly make 1 lb. batches, so I just mix it up in my big glass kitchen aid bowl.. but I got a nice 3lb size log mold I want to try.

Maybe it's a dumb question, but thanks for your help ladies! :)

i know for molds you measure it and then multiply W x H x L x 0.4

walmart has these big burgundy colored bowls in the houseware section. mine i can find in with the baking dishes and pyrex containers. they are i think 1.50 each. but they are pretty thick plastic. that is what i use to mix up my soap batches. even a 4 pound batch i have about 5 inches to the top of the bowl or more.

is that what you are meaning ? you could always take your big bowl you have and measure out 48 ounces of water (3lb) and pour in your bowl and see if its big enough ?
