#TheHarshestLight-bulb should have gone up in my head when I made soap on Tuesday.

I know how to do it and still made a mistake after pouring the soap into the molds. And then I put the pre-cleaned molds into the dishwasher to give them a thorough clean. 🙈

The first mistake is no biggie, means waiting two extra weeks before the soap is ready for use. The second mistake though, I guess I can throw the molds out.

Dolly Oh dear. One time I whipped huge amounts of air into a reconstituted batch. I ended up with many many bars of styrofoam-like purple soap 😂 4y

julesG @Dolly that could be cool, too. I think I need to try that next. 4y
Craftylikefox Oh no! I am trying out some silicone molds for my lotion bars this year. 4y
julesG @Craftylikefox The silicone molds that I used for the lotion bars came out fine. I'll try heating the plastic molds in the oven and then twist them back into shape. I might safe them this way. 4y
Craftylikefox Ooo that‘s a good idea! I hope it works out! 🤞 4y
Billypar I never read Fight Club, but it would be nice if it included some instructions at the end for making your own soap (provided it allowed for some ingredient substitutions 😁). 4y
julesG @Billypar 😂😂😂😂 the most funny part of this, before opening Litsy I just added Fight Club to my TBR. Should you want pointers as to how to make soap, let me know. 😉 4y

Just finished my second batch of sugar soap scrub bars. I'm looking forward to giving them out for Christmas. 🌲
