I had always been frightened of using caustic soda, so I first took the soap making plunge only in March this year. Since then I have made two further batches - we seem to be whizzing our way through the stock...
But I wasn't happy with just making blocks of soap, so I searched on-line for silicone molds and came across a company in South Africa which had just what I needed :)
So, with my stock running low, I made my third batch on Wednesday using those molds.
|Fill the molds with your mixture - to just on the rim|
How? Just peel the silicone mold back...
|Just peel the mold away from the hardening bar of soap|
|3rd batch of soap - using silicone molds|
|1st batch of soap|
And I can use the silicone molds in baking too!
