Terrific Tip Tuesday

Want to save some money? In this economy every little bit helps!

Starting out in the soap making world, I thought you had to use stainless steel pots to make your soap in because of the lye. Those pots would then be dedicated for soap making use only. That can get pricey! So make double use of your cooking pots!

Melt your oils and butters in any pot you have hanging around the kitchen, then transfer the oils into a heavy tall plastic bucket. You can then add your lye and soap away! Your pot is able to be used for everyday cooking and soap making.

You can purchase buckets at your local hardware store, but you can also get them from your local grocery store....just look in the freezer section for the largest container of ice cream, enjoy the ice cream and then Soap On!
