Soap Making Equipment – Cold Process Method
To make beautiful hand made soap, you need to have the right soap making equipment and supplies. In many cases there are several choices you can make, but here’s a general overview of the soap making equipment you’ll need for the cold process method. The good news is that soap making equipment is quite inexpensive and easy to obtain. And there’s not really all that much to buy. The soap making process uses caustic ingredients so the equipment used must be strong enough to withstand the process. Lye in particular is hard on equipment since it can erode some equipment immediately and others over time. Cold-process soaps are free of caustic properties just weeks after curing. Therefore, in this situation, equipment must be particularly durable. Additionally, you will want your equipment to be designated only to soap making. While the chances of caustic lye residue getting into your food from a pot or stirring implement are small, the possibility does exist so keeping the equipment separate is your safest option.
