Trouble with trace!


Recommended Posts

:sad2:I have been using the same recipe for 5 years for my cp soap, and this week the first 2 batches were great and the next 10 I can hardley get to a thin trace? I am ready to cry as I am pouring for a store and not my self. The only thing that has changed as far as I can tell is my stick blender broke and now I have been trying to use a mixer with 2 beaters. I am wondering if this could be the problem? I have tried 2 days of everything from cleaning to new scale new thermometers? Any one have any ideas?

Beaters could be part of your problem, all they are doing is whipping air in to the soap not really blending it, in my opinion. do you have a wire whisk, that may help? Could you lye be bad? Added too much water? Soaping too cold? Change your brand of OO? I would buy a new stick blender and try that..
