How to Make Liquid Soap- completely homemade, not from commercial bar soap. Has recipes for Moisturizing Hand Soap, Moisturizing Shampoo and a All-Around Home Cleaning Soap that she uses for laundry, dishes & in the dishwasher as well.
CPOP - cold process oven process. Forcing hot gel phase for 1hr in 170-degree oven. Best of both worlds: you get the swirls and details of cold process, no fuddling with the 24hr gel heat insulation anxiety. More intense colors.

But cheer up! It's a fun hobby.
