It’s finally here! I’ve said to myself, “Forget the self consciousness and just publish the video.” So here it is, a soap making video tutorial: Soap Making Tools, focusing…of course, on tools needed for making your own cold process soap.
One of the first things that I got stuck on when just beginning to make soap was what exactly to use.
Can I use any old pot, or do I need a special kind? Do I need some kind of fancy stick blender (I know, they’re not fancy, but they are if you’ve never had one), or can I just use a whisk or hand mixer?
What about measuring? Do I use a measuring cup, just throw it in without worrying about it, or be really specific with a scale? Do I need a digital thermometer, or is a cheaper candy thermometer good enough?
Those are just a few of the questions that I had at the beginning. I hope I am able to answer all of these and other questions for you in this Soap Making Tools video.
In this video, I have gathered all of my tools and do a quick walk through discussing what I use and why.
You don’t have to do things just like me. I’m just trying to give you a general idea to try and make your life easier. It helps me a lot to see something done. I guess I’m a very visual learner.
Thanks for your support.
