First time making soap

by Debora

First, thanks for such a wonderful site and taking the time to answer my question. Your basic recipe "Vegetable Oil Soap with Castor Oil" is what I have selected to be my first soap making experience, and I want it to be a good one. I have put many hours into researching different possibilities, and overall learning.


I did as you requested using a lye calculator for any and all recipies, as I did this one. And to my surprise they all came up with different amounts. I would like to make this recipe exactally as you have said. Do you feel I will have any problems?
Thanks, Debora

Answer:

Every lye calculator will have slightly different amounts due to the SAP values the calculator uses.

To get the exact same amounts as me, I suggest using SoapCalc. I find it the best by far.
