Finally soap day was here, I banished the younger two children outside and recruited Miss M my scientist in residence to help me. We weighed and measured with NASA like accuracy, we had our protective clothing on and our work bench all laid out with soap making equipment. I can not stress enough the importance of treating this process with full Laboratory protocol. I am happy to report that only a few mild chemical burns were sustained (and that they may even have been psychogentic, we were that paranoid.) However next time I would mix the caustic soda and water outside as, phew does that give off some noxious gas! I also can not agree enough with other bloggers that a stick mixer is the way to go and be really careful that it doesn't overheat.
