I still can't bend in the middle so I have two comfortable positions, laying down and standing up.
Since I have soap to wrap I used my kitchen island as an assembly line so I could get it done in a very vertical position.
I also tested those two naughty bars that riced on me. The PH levels with the strip and even with the phenolphthalein were in a normal range. The Mister showered with one and said it was fine. I don't trust my own Benedryl saturated self to be the judge at the moment.
Four batches done, eight to go. It was actually not bad doing it this way.
