What is a soap calculator?
Just so, how do you calculate soap?
Fill the mold with water and then pour that water into a measuring cup. Multiply the number of fluid ounces of water by 1.8 to get the total cubic inches of the mold. For example, if your mold holds 12 ounces of water, 12 X 1.8 = 21.6 cubic inches.
Also Know, what is Superfatted soap? Superfatting is either adding an extra amount of oil to your soap recipe but keeping the lye amount the same, or using the same amount of oil and less lye.
Thereof, how do you calculate lye for soap?
Divide the amount of lye by 0.3 and then subtract the amount of lye from the result.
- (Amount of Fat) × (Saponification Value of the Fat) = (Amount of Lye)
- (Amount of Lye) ÷ 0.3 = (Total Weight of Lye Water Solution)
- (Total Weight of Lye Water Solution) − (Amount of Lye) = (Amount of Water)
