Hi. Long story short, i’ve been banging my head against a wall trying more things to get the shampoo bar into liquid form (because i hate the waiting period and with a 20 month old…sometimes I cant find time to keep up on soap). Thanks!! When I did my first batch I did a zap test and then just used some on my hands to see if it felt like normal soap (I am usually my own guinea pig, haha). The example uses water, but I’m wondering if glycerin would be just as adequate… it is a liquid and will probably speed the saponification process? With both those methods, though, not only was I “zapped” even after four hours of cooking, but the mixture turned extremely dry. I think I’ll be sticking with the glycerin version. Making normal bar soap isn’t too scary.. but I have been putting liquid soap off for a while now…, So glad to have found your blog!
