1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / um..Palm Oil V. Palm Kernel Oil on: April 13, 2004 05:49:17 AM
I can't remember for the life of me if I have already asked this on this forum, but is there a difference? I went to the store to buy more P. Oil, but they sold the P. K. oil in larger quantities. They couldn't help me on whether it would change the quality (or even work) with the soap. (Lye) Does anyone know?

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / CP --Lye Question on: March 28, 2004 07:03:31 AM
So I made a huge batch of unscented CP soap two days ago, and was wondering...I accidentally put in too much oil, so when I added the lye, there was still about maybe the tip of a fingernaillayer of oilfloating on top. So I made some more water/lye and added it...until there was no more oil on top. So, because there was so much oil and now it is gone (I added in little increments), does that mean I have the correct amount of lye, or do I have too much lye now, because I was just kind of winging it?

the second part of the question is that I made this batch to remill, so I will add more oils and essential oils when I rebatch. Sooooo, if there does end up being too much lye in the original batch (I will be buying ph strips to make sure)...can I balance the hypothetical lye imbalance by ading more emollients?


Thanks.. Smiley
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Question about Cafepress.com on: January 16, 2004 03:17:37 AM

I notice that a bunch of you sell your stuff via cafepress.com...I've been thinking about it, but would LOVE to hear your experiences with the company first. Is it for real, or too good to be true? Thanks for any info and opinion!
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Plant Dyed Felt on: January 12, 2004 12:54:03 PM

sells crafting felt which is dyed with Plant Dyes, so it is safe for children's and baby toys. I sent them an e-mail asking about this specifically, and they went out of their way to call their source and find this out for me. They also stress the fact that no nuts were used in the dyes, so parents who have little ones with nut allergies have nothing to worry about.

I was so impressed with their response and their handling of my question, that I wrote back and told them I would let other designers know about their site...so gooo check it out!
