Last time I wrote about soap making, I’ve talked about ‘water discount’ (See HERE) and how reducing the amount of water in the lye solution has solved many of the problems I’ve been facing over the last months (soda ashes, soft soaps etc).
This time I’ve used the same water discount as the last time, but I’ve stick-blended the batter a little longer to get something thick enough I could pipe on top of the soap.
