4.0 out of 5 stars Start making soap within a week!, October 8, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Basic Soap Making: All the Skills and Tools You Need to Get Started (How To Basics) (Paperback)
I love that the book is spiral bound so it lays flat and stays open to the page you need. I love the step by step photographs of the process from beginning to end, including the emphasis on safety. I love that the author includes easily understood equations that allow even a newcomer to create original recipes.

Within a few days of receiving this book from Amazon I had made my first wooden soap mold and cutter. The author makes it clear that this is not required, but I wanted to! I had just about every ingredient and tool on hand and made my first batch of 4 oil soap, which is now curing and waiting to be shared with family and friends. I plan on making every recipe in the book and then creating my own. LOVE IT LOVE IT

actually I don't remember why 4 and not 5. I have given other things 5 stars. I have started collecting soap books, and I notice every author has their own preferred way of doing things. It seems to me that one book can't contain every word of wisdom a person needs to become a good soaper. This particular book is an excellent first step.

I also was surprised that WiseWoman didn't give it 5 stars ... Sounds like a great book for beginners as well as seasoned soap makers...
Thanks for your input. I want to start making soap.
