Let's Make Soap - A Cold Process Soapmaking Tutorial

I get a lot of curious people downtown who want to know how to make old fashioned, cold process soap. So for anyone who is interested in what making soap is all about, here's an overview of the soapmaking process. It is not meant to be used as a tutorial. Because of the many dangers associated with soapmaking due to the use of lye and the plethora of information to be had, I recommend that you carefully research the process before starting out on your own. Details on where to obtain additional information will be included within this article.Soapmaking involves a chemical process in which sodium hydroxide (lye) reacts with oils to make soap. This process is called saponification. Because this process requires the use of lye, important safety precautions must be taken. Rubber gloves and safety glasses should be worn during the soapmaking process, and vinegar, which neutralizes the lye, should be kept on hand in case of an accidental spill or burn. In addition to the necessary safety equipment needed for the journey into making soap, there is other required equipment you'll need to get started. First and foremost you will need to acquire lye. Because without lye, there is no soap. You should be able to find lye in the plumbing section of your hardware store. I buy Roebic brand at Lowe's. The brand doesn't really matter, but it must say that it is 100% sodium hydroxide. You'll also need a large pot for mixing the soap. This can be any type of pot you like - I use my hubby's old beer making pot - as long as the pot is not aluminum. Lye reacts badly with aluminum so remember to never mix the two. You'll also need an accurate scale, I use a digital postal scale I purchased at Staples. And, you'll need a thermometer or two to measure the temps of your oils and lye solution as well. Additionally, you'll find that a stick blender is your best friend in making soap, and then of course there are the molds, soapmaking oils, and distilled water to be mixed with the lye. Read the rest of this tutorial.http://soapdelinews.blogspot.com/2009/03/lets-make-soap-cold-process-soapmaking.html

Nobody has talked about this point (that I could find). Does this homemade laundry soap fade your colored clothing?

The reason I ask because I stopped buying the 'cheap' detergent long ago because it faded my colored clothing. I know there is commercials dedicated to this; "wash after wash, the clothes still look new and the color hasn't faded!" Can anyone noticed that their dark clothes are faded and they have worn out quicker????????? This is the only reason I am afraid to try this money saving tip!! thanks :}?

laundry soap dispenser

I have racked my brain trying to create a laundry soap dispenser from my large tide bottle that lays on its side, it has a spout. my thinking was if i hook up a clear tube to the spout push the button and get the correct measurement for a small or large load. but the problems i keep running into is that there is a leek from zip ties or the soap drips also i cant get the soap to go into the hole where its sposed to go rather then all over everything else....

Voltage question - 4 battery operated soap dispenser to AC powered awesomeness

Alright, so first time post here, I have been interested in converting my automatic soap dispenser from DC power to AC power using an old 5V cellphone charger. Last night I did the deed, actually really simple, I followed the general idea of this instructible, though my mod didn't include a double pole double through switch, I just took the batteries out and connected the AC charger's wires directly to the battery terminals. Here's my question though: While it works, its not quite as powerful as I though it would be, its actually a little weaker than it used to be when I had batteries with a fresh charge. It originally had 4 batteries, so I used a 5V charger. I have another charger setting around, but its a 7V, do you guys think thats too much of a jump? Should I wait till I can find a 6V charger? Am I going about this the wrong way? I really don't know anything about voltage, but the concept of converting this stationary item to AC seemed like a good idea and I'll really enjoy not having to replace the batteries all the time. Thanks for any help!

Is there a cheap, easy way to fancify cheap hand soap?

I don't want to delve deeply into soapmaking. I just thought it would be easy to add sugar or salt (for that scrubby feeling) and old body spray (for scent) to my generic refill hand soap. But I've been playing around and I just wind up with completely unsuitable textures.  Basically it gets really runny and no matter how much sugar/salt I put in there, it doesn't flow through the dispenser so it doesn't get used.  Thanks.

Casting Crystals?

I want to fabricate and cast crystals to then cast in glass. I've done glass casting before, but not much mold making. If I have a wax positive, I can melt it out of the plaster/silica mold so it doesn't have to be a 2-part mold as long as there aren't any undercuts, which there won't be. My question is how can I fabricate and then cast crystals to then cast in wax to make my glass mold? I'd like to work with silicone since it is flexible and then I won't have to make a 2-part mold. I thought about cutting foam to make the crystals, but I want the edges to be very smooth so that the glass casts look like crystals. I also thought about carving glycerine soap and casting that, but not sure how it would hold up to being cast with any flexible mold-making materials like silicone. Any advice?
