SECTION 1



HOT PROCESS SOAP
VS
COLD PROCESS SOAP




Both methods of soap making use water, lye and a combination of oils.
The additional step of heating the mixture with hot process soap speeds
the saponification process and results in a faster soap making process.


There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of soap. Hot process
creates a faster soap, and cold process often creates a smoother soap.

WHAT IS
COLD PROCESS
SOAP?




Cold process soap is a soap which is known for being hard and durable.
This soap can be manipulated in a number of different ways to add
moisturizing properties, scents, and so forth. Many bar soaps available
in the store are cold process soaps, as are many hand soaps. It is also
possible to make cold process soap at home, with the proper equipment
and training.

LYE
SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS




The list is fairly short and mostly common sense. There's no way
to make it interesting, but read through it anyway. Becoming
familiar with these lye and lye/water safety precautions will make
your soap projects rewarding, not painful.


1. Lye is a caustic and poisonous so treat it with care.

2. Be careful not to inhale the dust when working and work in a
well-ventilated area. Soapmaking is easiest if you have quick
access to the stove and sink, making the kitchen the ideal work
area. Use the exhaust hood when mixing lye or mix lye outside.

3. Have adequate space to work on. Protect all work surfaces.
Lye can "redesign" your kitchen!

4. Wear protective goggles and rubber gloves, long sleeve shirts
and close fitting clothing; protect your feet, no sandals.

5. Lye corrodes metal so remove all jewelry before making soap.

6. If you accidentally get lye on your skin, flush the area with
ordinary vinegar and wash well with soap and water. (Lye will feel
slippery on skin.) Lye in the eye necessitates a visit to the
emergency room.

7. Do not leave the area unattended. If you're tired or short of
time, leave soapmaking for another day.

8. When mixing lye with water, always add lye to the water, not
the other way around. Pour it carefully in a steady stream.

9. Do not place bowls/pots near the edge of the counter.

10. Never reuse lye containers, stirring spoons or molds for other
purposes.

11. Do not attempt to heat lye in microwave or on the stove.

12. Children and pets should be kept away from the work area until
all equipment has been cleaned and put away.

13. Let soap cure undisturbed - away from children and pets.
