How to Handle Potassium Hydroxide
If you are a cold process soap maker, you have used sodium hydroxide to make your soap. But did you know that you would use potassium hydroxide to make liquid soap. Working with potassium hydroxide is similar to working with sodium hydroxide. If you would would like to learn more about it, then I suggest you read How to Handle Potassium Hydroxide post on the Soap Queen's site.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
