I'm thinking I could have cut the slices a bit thicker, like the one at the back on the left, but oh well, next time. We used a couple of 1L milk cartons - the cardboard ones for our mold, and I kind of like the shape - they look sort of like beautifully rounded squares.
They almost look good enough to eat don't you think ! Once again, I haven't added any colour or fragrance, but I like it like that. I like that natural smell !
We have been using the soap from my first batch already. Had no choice really, we ran out of the last bar of bought soap, and I refused to buy any more so we tried some and wow! It is so wonderful to use. It lathers up nicely and feels like it's actually moisturising the skin - it would have to be the most luxurious soap I've ever used - and hey, it's a very basic homemade soap. I will NEVER buy soap from the supermarket again. If you have never made your own soap before, try it - it's not as scary as you might think ! Promise !
And while we're on the subject of bathrooms - that's where you use soap right ? - well, this is what else has been going on in our bathroom...
say cheese !
look how many teeth I've got !
and this little cranky pants is really the most adorable little girl in the world !
Love you Marlise.
