What I did today, whilst balancing on my very dodgy broken foot. Made the soap yesterday, so today had the excitement of demoulding (which is always trying as I forget to grease the moulds first) and then slicing. Almost the best bit because you get to see what the texture is like when you slice it open. Now there's lots of waiting. Almost six weeks. And then it will be properly cured and ready to use. If you want to have a go at making your own soap, I recommend that you read this post from Rhonda at Down-To-Earth. But please be aware that kids, pets and people with breathing difficulties should be banished whilst you are making soap, as lye (caustic soda) gives off dangerous fumes and if spilled will cause burns. You do need to c be very careful and concentrate on what you are doing. Of course, further reading is always helpful, so check out your local library for any books they might have.
