Getting rid of the Dreaded Soda Ash!

8 Nov

Did you just read the title of this blog post and have no clue what I’m talking about?

Well, first off Soda Ash has absolutely nothing to do with this….


It has to do with this……

Soap with Soda Ash

Do you see the white coating that’s on the soap?

That’s soda ash.

Some people spray 91% rubbing alcohol on the top of the raw soap in the mold prior to insulating (to prevent soda ash.)

others use Plastic wrap. With the example above I didn’t use anything. So needless to say I have soda ash.

Now the question becomes can I get rid of it? and the answer would be Yes! I can get rid of it.

It’s pretty simple.

First boil some water.

Boil Water

Then take the bar in you hand and carefully I’ll say that again carefully place it in front of the steam.

“Carefully” place bar in front of the steam.

Then take a Clean rag or paper towel and gently rub  to dry the bar.

The soda ash should be a thing of the past! See…..

Soda Ash Gone!

    What a great technique! Love the colors and textures in the soap as well.
