Falling in love

Sometimes, I fall in love with a bar of soap because of one little part of it. Like the top.

The white coating is what soapmakers call “ash”.

Sometimes, I hate it and will try all kinds of things to avoid it.

But sometimes, I love it. Like this time.

    • Thanks! I’ve heard of steaming, too. Sometimes, I spray the top of the soap with some 90% isopropyl alcohol right after it’s poured. That helps decrease the ash on those swirled soaps.

What's on your mind?
