hi caf,
sorry for my long response to your query. here's how to make soap;

Liquid Dishwashing Soap
500g Sodium Lauryl Ethyl Sulfate(SLES)
5 liters tap water
250 gSodium Chloride(Salt)
50ml Coconut Dietnolamide(CDEA)
50ml Linear Alkaline Benzene Sulforic ACid(Labs)
5ml NP-10 or Terginol
10ml Scent or fragrance
water soluble coloring(option)
You need a big plastic pan and plastic scapula enough to accomodate 5 liters of water. You need materials made of plastic.
1. Measure all materials needed.
2. Mix SLES in water gradually until dissolves.
3.Add desired coloring.(Mix first a pinch of coloring in half full of glass water before mixing it all in the pan)
4. Add CDEA &Labs.
5. Add fragrance, maybe jasmine, lemon, apple etc., only one scent.
6. Ass sodium chloride or salt, mix continuosly(the secret of good dishwashing liquid depends on how you mix them. Only in one stroke, continuously. Salt will make it thicker and bubbly.
8. Let stand for 24hours. until bubbles disaapear.
9. Pour into desired bottle.
20. Label.

Caf, next time gonna send for liquid hand soap, multi purpose powder soap, fabric softener and conditioner, Tiles and toilet bowl cleaner, and car shampoo.

I attended a seminar on how to make these things, now i'm making it by myself and sell them to people. Because those branded ones are expensive. Besides, you can earn a lot by selling them to your friends and other people.
Regards. Sorry for the delay of my response, I seldom open this site.

Hi Caf,
Thanks for your messages. I've been making soap tetergent, dishwahing liquids, fabric softener etc., as my sideline jobs. I'm happy to send to you the ingredients and the "how to", of these things. I do admire your talent of bag making. Can you share with me those talents of yours. I just need some patterns to do it. Thanks and gonna clips my notes for soapmaking to send to you.

thanks Caf for your nice comments! Glad to meet you! I used to make handbags too from the vintage kimono fabrics, but now only make the cards and occasionally a scarf to go with my cards. I don't know if you like to work with silk, but check out what I have in my etsy shop:
Take care!

if you are speaking of a cotton thread rack, they now have them at walmart and not as pricey as the ones i had to pay for at hancocks.
