Should I throw away soap that has too much lye?
I think I failed miserably at my first attempt at making soap.
I used 16oz of ROOTO lye to 1 quart of water and 1 quart of different oils (melted tallow, olive oil, coconut oil) and 1 oz. of lemongrass oil.
The product came out choppy and flaky. It smells real good, but could that much lye be harmful to use on skin or should I try to use your rebatching method, or just throw it all out?
I would definitely throw the soap out...sorry! Do not under any circumstances try to use the soap on your skin.
It is important to weigh out all your ingredients when making handmade cold process soaps and to not use liquid measurements like quarts or liters.
Try using one of my basic recipes
and be sure to read up on the process
of soap making before you start.
Read through my site....you'll find it's full of useful information on how to make great handmade soaps.
