Thanks for the info! I was thinking about starting to make my own soap, but didn't know if I could use the same stuff or if I needed separate utensils (though, I was fairly confident I'd need separate) after watching the videos on about.com.
Do you think it's cheaper to make your own or buy it at the store? What are some of the advantages to making your own?
Can you use your normal kitchen utensils to make those, or do you have to have separate ones? i was watching a vid of it, and they used a stick mixer--I've got one, but I don't want to ruin it so that I can't use it for cooking anymore.
