RAOK -- Soap! WINNERS!

Recommended Posts

As we were discussing in another thread, when one has to break the "keep yer hands outta the tank!" mantra, it's nice to wash them with a plain soap before diving in.

Since there was some interest, I'm RAOKing five bars of my homemade castile soap! That's pure soap made at home, by me, from olive oil, distilled water, and 100% lye. No other ingredients, fragrance, or additives. These are old bars from my personal stock, and are not "prettied up" - this is utilitarian soap. :) The round ones have some faint textured patterns on them from some experiments in stamping designs in the top, which will wash away in the first uses.

And although I'm totally comfortable with my soap, I can make no guarantees regarding your personal experience or the safety of your shrimpies. Please use your judgment before changing any part of the routine in your perfectly maintained Grand Champion $3000-per-shrimp tank. ;)

Make a numbered list, and I'll randomly select 5 winners on Jan 25th!

You pay shipping - first class will be fine in any weather, but I can pop them priority if you request it. (Don't have the actual price right now, but gonna be under $3)

Thank you for the great RAOK. May I ask what is castle soap. I saw the recipe on the other thread.

Castile soap is just the term for 100% Olive Oil soap. Named after Castile region of Spain, I think, where I'm guessing they have a lot of olive oil around to make soap out of. (As opposed to other areas where people used tallow or other animal fats)

Term's been used less specifically by some soap makers for soaps that are *almost* all olive oil, with a small amount of something else like coconut oil, which makes better bubbles. I don't think that's technically correct (some people call it "bastile", I think from a bastardization of castile) but I don't think there's really any official regulation of the term.

  

Do you sell your soap Pika?

I have, on Etsy and locally, but I'm not actively selling right now. There are some pics of my fancier soaps in the hobbies thread over in the lounge. :)

 

ETA: that hobbies thread was buried pretty deep, so here it is. Someone should resurrect that one, and the other pet pictures one! (We all need more cute pet pictures!)
