What to do when your soapmaking goes wrong.

Let’s be honest, making soap isn’t all that difficult. In fact, the basic process is pretty easy. But once you get the basics down, there’s a whole world of challenges you’ll likely encounter as you work to advance your soapmaking techniques.

This book is THE soapmaking book that I wish I had when I first started making soap. When I made my first batch of soap back in 2008, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong! Instead of producing beautiful soap, my first batch was an oozing, squishy mess. Thankfully, for the rest of you soapmakers, that first batch didn’t keep me from honing my craft.

In Soapmaking Tips, Tricks and Troubleshooting, I provide extensive troubleshooting advice for when soap goes wrong. Moving beyond the basics, this book discusses advanced topics such as superfatting, water discounts, fatty acid profiles, gel phase and more.

Focusing on tips and tricks that make soapmaking more efficient, Soapmaking Tips, Tricks and Troubleshooting addresses advanced ideas, terms and definitions, helping you go from soapmaking novice to master.

With input from over 100 soapmakers, you’ll learn advanced techniques that improve your craft and make soapmaking infinitely more fun.

This book does NOT outline the basic soapmaking process. Instead, it elevates your knowledge of the basic soapmaking steps and provides you tactical tools for addressing the pitfalls you may encounter as you develop your soapmaking skills.
