Traditionally you would have to use water to dissolve KOH (potassium hydroxide) then mix with melted butter and oil in a crock pot. Then you have to go through hours of "cooking"... erg... that's why I don't make it often because it's such a pain in my axx. I would make a big pot and save the paste to use for months until I have to do an other pot. Then one day, I heard you can make liquid soap using glycerin instead of water to dissolve potassium hydroxide, and this will shorten the "cook" time by more than 50%! Ok, I'm totally in for this, sign me up! Time for experiment!
Heat up glycerin and dissolve lye (I don't know why it turned a little amber color)
Melted butter and oil in a crock pot:
Mix in the glycerin lye solution:
It got very bubbly:
Getting translucent about 10 minutes and thicken up:
I turned on the crock pot on low and let it "cook" for a couple hours. Turned it off and let it cooled down, it feels like really thick taffy :
Viola! Liquid soap paste! I'm in love with glycerin made liquid soap method now! I can never go back to the traditional way! I'm doing a little silly dance in my kitchen right now...
