Colorants - 1998/04/21 01:15 "I've been have a lot of fun experimenting with new soap recipes and was wondering what kinds of success others have had using varioius colorants. I've found that in most cases, a vegetable coloring is destroyed by the lye.

I've toyed with the idea of colored bamboo power. This is the base used for incense making and is very inexpensive. Has anyone ever tried this?

I've also learned that liquid Rit dye can be used however, I've found that it's "user hostile" to white wash rags so I don't recommend it.

Meanwhile, I'm still on a quest for some colorful ideas that are relatively inexpensive and better than boring browns and plain old milky whites.
