What we need in making soap
Safe Working With NaOH / KOH
NaOH / KOH is one of the key in the production of soap. NaOH in many places in my shop selling building materials as a solid anti-chemicals, while the KOH was bought in a store of chemicals. NaOH / KOH should be treated with caution. If it will not cause danger to both you and other people. If t splashed liquid NaOH / KOH should immediately wash with water that much, but if treated properly there is no problem.
Safetly steps to handle the NaOH / KOH:
- 1.firstDo not pour water to the top of the NaOH / KOH. Always to pour / mix NaOH / KOH in water, with slowly.
- 2.secondBe careful, less “splashing” especially to the body, the skin or eyes. Better wear glasses.
- 3.thirdKeep out of reach of children and pets.
- 4.fourthAlways wear rubber gloves while working with it.
- 5.fifthUse the mask to make the solution NaOH / KOH with water.
Materials / ingridients we need to make soap
Oil or Fat
Almost all the oil / natural fat can be made into soap. Find an easy course like: Coconut Oil, Sawit Oil, Olive Oil, Corn Oil, Soybean Oil
NaOH / KOH
To change the oil / fat into soap. Can buy in the stores of chemicals, take a technical course.
As a catalyst / solvent. Select distillate water or packaged drinking water. The water's not good pam, contains many minerals.
Essential Oils and Fragrance
As to impart fagrance. We can buy some of it in chemicals store or other
To colorific soap. Can also use food coloring.
Spices, herbal, talk, flour starch / maizena can be added at the time of "trace".
Tools we need
A simple mask
Solvents used during the making of NaOH / KOH only.
Solvents used during the making of NaOH / KOH only
A pair of rubber gloves
Used during the making of soap process
For the water container
Kitchen scale with the smallest scale of 1 to 5 grams
Small plastic bag
To consider NaOH / KOH
Stainless steel spoon or plastic-mold polipropilen
Stainless steel spoon or plastic-mold polipropilen for NaOH / KOH and stir it.
Vessel of glass or plastic-polipropilene
To the solution NaOH / KOH with water.
To consider and and mix water and oil, in this case we can use plastic bucket
Cloth or fabric
To close the mold after the soap filled
To print coat
- Blender with its caps
Cloth or fabric
To close the blender. we used the different cloth or fabric from the one that we used to close the mold after the soap filled
