Hybrid Embed Soap – CP & MP Into CP Soap

Have you ever wondered if you can combine MP (melt and pour) and CP (cold process) soap into one bar?  The answer is yes.  You can make a hybrid bar of soap by making MP shapes and place them into a CP batch.  In a recent post on Lovin' Soap site called Hybrid Embed Soap - CP & MP Into CP Soap by Gwynne Olsen tells you how to do it. I have always wanted to try to do but I was not sure how.  It looks simple enough.  IF I can do it, you can too!

Explaining and Preventing Soda Ash

If you are a cold process soapmaker, you may have encountered soda ash.  Soda ash is an uneven, white ashy film on your soap bars.  It is harmless, but it can be frustrating when it appears.  Sometimes, I get it on my soap and other times I do not. If I get it, I just wipe it off with a damp paper towel.  But there are ways to prevent it.  Want to learn how to prevent soda ash?  Then I recommend reading a recent post from The Soap Queen called Explaining and Preventing Soda Ash.
