I use a lot of bath bombs because our water softener is on the fritz. Without a bomb our water feels like battery acid. The town just sent us a survey asking if we'd like to be hooked up to the city water and we said YES. Now we have to wait to see if the majority of our neighbors agree. I'm not holding my breath. They have voted it down once already.
I made a big production out of making a batch and even got The Mister to help but apparently 2020 is still making mischief because this is what I got. They split. Most likely because I only had 70% alcohol on hand. I usually use 90% which keeps the liquid at a minimum but I can't get a bottle of it to save my life. It could have also been the baking soda. I think it spent the summer absorbing all the humidity. I should have pitched it and started fresh.
The pressed ones did a little better but they still cracked. Oh, well...they still work and that's what counts.
I did get a small batch of lip goo made without any drama. I like to keep one in the pocket of all my coats and jackets at this time of year. I can't use commercial chap stick. The SPF stuffs makes my lips burn and itch.
Getting any of this done was a real slog as my soap corner is all taken up by my stitching stuff at the moment. I have to store a lot of things from the living area in this little room and space is at a premium. I don't miss not having a real kitchen at all but I sure do miss my little soap corner.
