The Family That Soaps Together

 I talked The Mister into playing with soap with me. First we took a trip to the grocery store for some cheapo ingredients.

 I let him pick out the colors and smells from my ever growing soap stash. He picked orange-color and fragrance. He liked weighing out the oils. He wasn't even afraid of the lye.

 He handled the stick blender like a pro.

 He wanted lots of orange and that's what he got using some Annatto Seed powder. I'm still trying to get it off of stuff. It's pretty powerful. A little goes a long way. This may be self tanning soap.

 I showed him how to do some fancy mica swirls on the top with some squirt bottles of color and a bamboo skewer.

Look at that mess. I'm happy we did this outside. Now we have to wait a few days to see what he made.


  1. This is fantastic! I can't wait to see how it turns out; so cool to do it together!

  2. The couple that soaps together...well lathers!

  3. Looks like the pair of you had fun - can't wait to see the results!
