Debbie? Re: liquid soap - 1997/09/27 07:47 "Debbie - Do you have any good pointers about making goat's milk liquid soap? I have made a few hundred (I guess) bars of bar soap, and have read Catherine Failor's "Making Natural Liquid Soaps" approx. 10 times (I'm nervous about making the step into liquid soap), I am going to try to make it this weekend, I've had the potassium hydroxide for over a month now, waiting until I build my confidence. I was planning on using my bar soap recipe (switching the hydroxides) olive, palm and coconut oils + gm and using the soap calculator. When would I add the gm? Thanks for any info. Marcia"

Debbie? Re: liquid soap - 1997/09/27 10:57 "Marcia, I would add the gm at the beginning of the process. I am sure after reading that book so many times you have a good grip on the process. Just dive in and go for it. Just remember not to give any lye discount, due to the extra oil can cause your soap not to lather as nice. I like to add extra glycerine (makes greater lather) and let it set several weeks, although when you use the higher temps and boil it, you can use the soap right away (when your processes are complete). I also like to add Vitamin E. Hope the best for you... let us know how it turns out. Debbie -gms"
