The design of the first soap didn’t turn out at all as I had planned. I was going for crisp lines and a geometric pattern. As soon as I started pouring, I knew the soap was at too light of a trace to make the design I had in mind. Sometimes I’m not very patient (Mom, if you're reading this I think you just laughed a little bit. Or at least smiled). So rather than waiting for the soap to get a stronger trace, I went ahead and poured. I’m very happy with the result, even though it does not have the straight lines I originally planned. Say hello to Sherbet Swirl.
The next one didn’t come out quite the color I was going for. It’s pomegranate. I was going for more of a reddish-purple. I love the deep purple I got out of this. I’ll be using this dark purple again. The dark line is colored with activated charcoal. It's great stuff.
The final soap that I cut after I decided to stop cleaning (note: the cleaning is never “finished”, but I accomplished what was on my list, so I stopped) is clove. There is always a bar of this in my shower. And my other shower. Yes, it’s great to have two bathrooms with showers, but now we’re back to that cleaning thing. I digress. Again. Anyway, the clove smells great. It smells like my dentist’s office. I love that it’s scrubby too. Did you know that clove has natural deodorizing properties? The soap isn’t anything special to look at, but it is a scrubby natural soap with lots of great cleaning ability.
Thanks for reading!
