MindtheGappp: Thanks - I seriously never thought of looking on Ebay - duh! <slaps head>
Pollyteapot - I've been getting my sodium hydroxide from soapmakersstore but they don't stock potassium hydroxide. Glad to see some other soap makers out there. Haven't been doing it long but it's so addictive - all my friends get soap for presents now whether they like it or not!
What do you wrap yours up in? I've experimented with origami paper, cardboard and have settled on hessian fabric cos it looks natural.
Anyway, thanks for advice and wish me luck with the liquids!
