I used the Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Palm Oil Recipe from The Everything Soapmaking Book by Alicia Grosso. She has good, solid recipes. I admit I cheated and used water for the liquid and powdered milk to make it "milk soap". I scented it with a blackberry fragrance oil. Milk soap always has a weird ammonia/sulfur smell for a day or two. Now, it actually does smell like cereal.The soap in the tray molds has been out, cut, and drying for a week. The soap in the PVC pipe got stuck. I tried pushing it out but only succeeded in mashing it up. I ran out of options. I stuck it in the freezer. I left it in for an hour or so, but really, it only needed about 20 min. Once I took it out and it started to warm up again, the condensation makes the soap slick and it slides right out. Those nine little rounds of hand soap were stubborn!
