Liquid Soapmaking

Some photos from this weekend's Liquid Soapmaking class with industry veteran Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company


Cooking the soap in a crock pot.

Blending the soap with the stick blender & checking the soap's temperature. You want it to be around 160°F.

Diluting the cooked soap paste and getting out all the lumps.

Checking the pH. You want the pH to be 9 or under.
