When were you supposed to re-add the chickpea flour? Do you incorporate it at the adding it all together stage, or perhaps roll the cauli balls in them?

I just made them by mixing it all together and frying in balls. Got a thumbs up from husband and me :)

For the record - Coles had the washing soda but not Borax, Woolworths had both. I didn't look at soap. I was lucky enough to be shopping in a centre where they were about 50m apart. :)

I eyeballed my powder, I suppose it would be about the same volume as a ping pong (table tennis) ball.

Costs were:

Borax - 3.49/500g (used about 125g or 25%) - 87 cents
Soda - 2.99/1kg (used about 200g or 20%) - 60 cents
Soap: mine was handmade... Coles laundry soap is 62 cents a bar = 1.55 for 2.5 bars

= 3.02 per batch of powder, about 4 cups full. Might be anywhere from 16 to 25 washes? 12 cents to 19 cents a wash.

Hopefully someone already figured out the goo, because I don't have the receipts or patience to look ingredients up :P

All towels are nice and soft :) I don't normally use fabric softener on them and they feel a lot different today.

I also washed my microfibre cloths... I hope I didn't wreck those, as they recommend no fabric softener.

(I use a front loader and 30oC water)

I ended up using 200g of mixed soap... some pure soap, some leftover unscented soap I made, and some citrus scented soap I made. Washed towels with it today... seemed to go pretty well. I will see how they feel when they are folded. :)

Also, also... did anybody weigh the soap, how much would it weigh? Is 2 cups when it's grated, or powdered, or... well you get the idea :D

Ditto for me cookie! Except I am posting today... so I bought it last night and will be making it soon :)

I made the soap myself... so I know there are no nasties in it, and I have heaps of ugly cut bits, so it wouldn't be a waste at all. :)

I'll see how I go :D

I am almost out of goo :) I wanted to know, has anyone added anything to this such as frangrance and how did that go? I suppose I could add my grated, fragrant soap... Lord knows I am getting heaps of that!!

I could definitely go the transparent lid!!!

I use a program called Tree Notes for my bath and body recipes... it's good for me because I get my recipes from all over the web. If this is the only place you get your TM recipes from then I think something incorporated into the site itself would be excellent  :-* :-*

Thanks Megan. Have you ever made it in the TM? I have made 4 batches of CP soap now (using stick blender, etc) but too scared to try TM.

I don't really mind using the stovetop and stock pot :)

It was like when I tried to grind that huge sea salt... just made huge noises dinging around the place, didn't cut, did start to get very hot from friction and I thought it better to leave well enough alone.

Glad you had a successful lip balm experience, Nerida. :) I want to try that soon, just waiting on a parcel with flavours & tubes in it!
