Here is the soap:



I have another question...here is a close up pic of the sides:



I've looked around the internet and found that it is called soda ash. Most places said that it's basically harmless and can be scraped or washed off with no problem. I want to know if there are any tips to minimize this in the future. I used a silicone mold, would a sturdier mold have helped?

Thanks, OhHappyDay!

I just finished making my very first batch of soap and it's in the oven now. I couldn't wait for the lye that I'd ordered online to get here, so I hunted down an Ace Hardware and there it was. I was so nervous about dealing with the chemical, though, despite the fact that I've handled that (& more) in chem lab in high school/college Cheesy.  I think that I might have used a tad bit more oil than I needed to, but, all in all, everything went pretty smoothly. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

I did have one question, should I have covered the top of the mold with something before I put it in the oven? Is that something you only do when you're doing CP alone?
