32 pounds of soap baby!


Today I've made 32 pounds of soap. Once cut into bars that will be about 100 bars of soap. Add that to the 16 pounds I made yesterday and 24 pounds I made the day before that and we are talking 72 pounds of soap this week. That is over 250 bars.

It's a shame my family never bathes.

I kid.** Don't worry I kid. Surely I kid.

** But I won't be kidding after our camping trip this weekend. Whew! Pass the soap!

that's alot of soap! must be sort of like when i dye about 40 yards of fabric...takes days...but i love the results. next thursday am having my first dye class here at the house. i know i still need alot of basic stuff but will get by. amazing how much stuff you collect over 20 years dyeing...and mark made me leave it all behind. he never did buy me new dyes...

One of our projects in high school science was to make soap from lye and cooking fat. Even with the crude basics, it was fun. Your soap looks really, really yummy. In a soapy sort of way. Well done!

Stacy said...

I say a round of baths for everyone then! Well done!

Tine said...

That IS a lot of soap. Got to visit your site and order some! I'm going to try the Bavarian Lavender like Elizabeth suggested. Sounds yummy and I know lavender helps to relax you. I hope you have a good camping trip...hugs, Linda

Happy Camping!!

Renna said...

Wow, that is so awesome! I'd love to learn to make my own soap. I prefer using natural soaps, but they can be a bit pricey to buy.

Dina said...

That makes a pretty picture. I've never seen soap still in the molds.
Have fun camping.
Shalom from Jerusalem.

How wonderful... I have always wanted to try and make my own soap... I have been reading recipes--get a nervous about the lye... Your looks so beautiful!

Chickenbells said...

Welll...that is a lot of soap! How wonderful though! I've never made soap, you make it look so easy...

If you have not tried the "Man Soap", you should, and if you don't, that is ok, because that means more for me! Joking aside...it is total yummy. Can we get a "Man Soap" sugar scrub? Hint.Hint.
