Do I understand correctly that if a recipe calls for 10 oz of water and 4 oz of lye that you will use only 6oz of water and 4 oz of lye? Don't mean to be skeptical but I was expecting more like 10 or 15%. I know you're more knowledgeable that most anybody here so I'm not questioning your opinion....I just want to make sure I understand correctly.
Also, can you please elaborate on the fragrance comment? Not sure what you mean.
Yes. 6 ozs. of water and 4 ozs. of lye. I find if I use less water, sometimes not all of the lye will dissolve. This works with fragrances that don't accelerate trace or tend to seize. You don't want to end up with soap on a stick.
