Soap making at midnight...


In a vain attempt to squeeze in a bit of Valentine's cheer, I tried to make something quick, thematic and festive... I've had better luck -


I thought the concept was neat - heart shaped soaps via candy molds or cookie-cutter. Better in theory than in practice unfortunately. The soap was hard and bent the cutters, and the all-natural-romantic-soap-scent I bought smelled like... soap...


They DO look look Valentinesy however, so I guess it wasn't a complete loss. Translucent, pretty colors, reminiscent somewhat of hard candies or glass...

Are you on my mailing list?

Hey sister:) I'm not on your mailing list but these soaps make me wish I was:))) I think they are impressive and look good enough to eat!
I'm off to the library today, still tired from the virus but ready to hit the books!

We had a soap making kit, and the coulour dye for adding to the soap made a total mess all over the sink when you tried to wash your hands with the finished products.

Nightmare about the cutters bending due to the hardness of the soap.

Hmm, if I got this in the mail I'd wonder exactly what the message intended might be: Please be my Valentine but first take a shower? As Gautami said, they would look nice enough to eat to me too and I'd have eaten a few before I realized my error. "Hey, these fancy cookies taste a little soapy."
