Troubleshooting Lye Heavy Soap

Preparing your work space when you are making soap is very important.  It definitely helps the process run more smoothly.  One thing I always try to do is have all of my supplies and ingredients in place before I get started making soap.  According to the Soap Queen, while forgetting a color can change the design slightly, forgetting an oil can result in lye heavy soap that may burn your skin. The soap can also end up lye heavy if the recipe amounts are off, if the ingredients are mis-measured, if the scale isn’t functioning properly, etc. This creates a hard or brittle soap. It may also be irritating or drying to the touch, or have little white pockets that look like air bubbles. Testing the soap is the best way to know for sure.  The Soap Queen recently did a post called Troubleshooting Lye Heavy Soap.  It goes into detail on what needs to be done.
