Instructions

Mix as usual. Basic instructions can be found at https://www.thesage.com/calcs/LyeCalc.html

Phase 1

Allow the water and KOH to be mixed and then added to melted fats. Stir until trace (read use a hand blender). Allow to sit for a few days until pH tests low.

Phase 2

Then slowly stir (read use a spoon) in extra water to create a liquid soap.

Comments

Heidi Feldman (list member) uses a gelled water, created from soaking Irish moss in the water when adding the water during phase 2. Also, scenting is done is phase 2, not in phase 1. The reason? It sticks!
