I think I have enough soap to last several months now.  I still need to make a batch for hubby with scrubbies in it.  Again, here are some more dupes from Daystar.  I had some problems with ashing on a couple batches but it still works as soap despite the ash.  The colors on some morphed a little but to bad overall and I believe the fo's I used should not discolor them either over time. I can't wait for them to cure so I can use them.

This one is not Daystar but WSP's cotton candy twist



These are the dupes:

Toffee sugar crunch


Blue bubblegum crush



and...
Jasmine honey

Ooh, Jasmine Honey sounds amazing.  Love the colors on the blue bubblegum crush.  Great job!  Do you have a favorite?

Cute! I love the color on the blue ones.

Do you put plastic wrap on them to avoid the soda ash? I wait until they set up a little bit (20 minutes or so) and then push a piece of plastic wrap down onto the top.

No, I have never heard of putting plastic wrap on it before, I was under the impression there was nothing one could do about ashing.  Huh  On the two that ashed I was busy making a second batch in a different mold and I let it sit on my kitchen table then I took both batches in my garage and covered them and then put a warm rug over them. The ones in my secon batch each time did not ash but the ones in my first batch did.  I'll try the plastic wrap next time...I'm willing to try anything as I hate the way ash looks as it ruins the color on the tops.

No, you can definitely prevent it on the top! I thought you (or someone else who was posting about it on here?) was having problems with it ashing on the cut sides, which I don't know how to prevent (but there's ways to get rid of it) but pushing the plastic wrap down onto the softset soap will definitely help if not totally eliminate it!  Grin
