That’s all well and good, but how do you make it?

All 8 Foamo Soaps

A soaper never gives away her secrets, but she might tease her blog readers with some of her fancy ways of soaping…

Making the soap can be broken down into a few simple steps, which I will tell you – minus all the measures and ingredients precisely.

  1. We measure out the correct amount of oils (we use rapeseed oil, olive oil and vegetable oil
  2. We add it to our massive pan, kind of like the one you’d serve 50 kids a school dinner in
  3. We measure out the correct amount of lye, which is a mix of sodium hydroxide and pure water that we do the day before – it gets to be extremely hot so we have to leave it before using it!
  4. Into the massive pan!
  5. We then mix it with a huge blender, affectionately known as Brenda the Blender, until it reaches a stage called ‘trace’. This stage is at the point that you can remove the blender and the mixture that drops hits the surface and stays
  6. At this point, my dad and I end up becoming like very clean witches, stirring in colours and scents to make your Foam-o soaps perfect
  7. Out of the massive pan, and into a massive mould instead – each one is about 80cm long and 6cm wide
  8. It’s left to harden in our lovely garden shed for a few days, before we unmould it and cut it up
  9. Now it has to be left for 6 weeks (such a long time!!) for the curing process to occur, which means a lot of water evaporates and all the mixtures get ‘aged’ slightly
  10. Fast forward 6 weeks, and we’re boxing it up for someone like you to receive in the post!

That is the 10 fast steps to making cold process soap, the Foam-o way.

Everyone has their own soaping methods, but after a lot of trial and only a bit of error, this has been the method that has been working for us.

I hope none of you lovely readers go and try and make your own Life’s a Beach, or My Great Auntie Septic – they’re as secret as that Krusty Krab secret formula

Robyn, I am your mother
It’s soap nice to meet you!

We've got some inside (or in-sisal) information on some sisal bags for you guys... Soap is a necessity – well, if you want your friends to keep speaking to you anyway. The main question is how to store and use it well, you may be asking how *I* do it...
Since 3rd time is the charm, I let my very dear Mummy write a blog post for my 3rd piece. This could’ve ended badly, since I’ve made messes all over her farm and house with mugs, plates, soap and stickers for the past few months… All is well. Hi, I’m...
