Re: please help me rebatch! - 1998/07/15 06:15 "Rebecca:

I'm making a 3 lb batch as we speak. I used Lisa Lisa's 12-Step rebatching instructions...I think she is connected to The Green Cottage's webpage. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll get you the address.

I use all veggie soaps. My rebatching has been ok, even though I made a few boo boo's along the way. By basic soap is all vegie, and I forgot to change the lye content when I substituted palm oil for vegie shortening. So I had almost a 14% superfatter soap! I thought it would never work. But I let it cure for a full month, then grated it up, and let it dry further. Then I started using Lisa Lisa's steps. I use a double boiler and put it on a very LOW heat. I use almost the full amount of liquid since my soap dried so long, and I use MILK as my liquid, not water.

My first rebatch got too bubbly and airy. The second I burnt the milk so it turned dark brown and smelled like burnt cookies. My third and fourth batches were fine. I made apricot and I'm making kiwi right now. I almost prefer this kind of soapmaking to cp! I would get Lisa's steps and follow them. You can contact her directly too from her direction page.
