i tried to make soap with milk, and i think i burned the milk, which in turn probably made the soap not great. but on top of that, i burned the soap. so round one of soap making was really gross. unfortunately, i used my good scents on it. 🙁
so i did round two without milk, and i turned out pretty well, considering it was my first go at hot-process soap. one of the fats i’m using is pretty stinky though. i have a feeling it’s the crappy hydrogenated lard i had in my cupboard from a while ago.
but, the good thing about hot-process soap is that it’s done a lot quicker. it should be ready to unmold tomorrow and ready to use a couple days after that (my cold-process soap is still curing).
i used eucalyptus scent in the second batch along with green coloring. hope it turns out well and doesn’t stink like fat too much when i use it!
