I had bought Catherine Failor's books a month ago. But something made me confused about using alcohol in hot process, isn't making it flame? Can you help me? Thank u Answer: Catherine Failors books are about making transparent soap and liquid soap. These soap processes aren't really for the beginner soap maker. I suggest learning how to make regular cold and hot process soap making first before trying these methods.
As for your question about how to cook the soap paste with the alcohol. This is not done on a open flame but on an electric element in a very well ventilated room or outside. The soap paste must have a heavy plastic tent over the pot that is secured with a bungie cord. The tent keeps the alcohol vapours from escaping and igniting. If you decide to proceed with the transparent soap making, I strongly suggest reading the entire book before beginning.
