Raise your hand if you have have experienced soda on your bars of soap. I have more than once. Are you wondering how you can prevent it? Back Porch Soap Company recently wrote a post titled How to Prevent Soda Ash on Your Cold Process Soap Bar. The posting explains what it is, why it happens, how to remove it and more.
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.
