River Bar Soaps

Batch Number Eighty-Seven


As part of our soapmaking process, we keep a record of each batch of soap we make.  We’ve dBatch 87.1one this since Day Number One, Batch Number One.  Why?  Because somehow my husband knew it was the proper way to start this adventure.

There are several good reasons for keeping a log book as a soapmaker:

  • To be able to replicate a recipe if you find it’s one you really like.
  • To help you remember what you did if (heaven forbid!) a batch turns out badly and you don’t ever want to replicate it.
  • To encourage yourselves when you look back and see how far you’ve come: “Wow! We’ve made 20 batches of soap so far!!”

Our log book consists of a printed recipe with detailed procedures for each batch.  The batch number is printed on the front label and hand-stamped onto each bar of soap so that we–and you–can be assured of the quality and consistency of River Bar Soaps.

Batch Number Eighty-Seven just got stamped!

  1. Great idea! I am fairly new to soapmaking and just starting a blog about my experiences. What a great way to keep up with batches!

    • Thanks, threelittlefishes! Are you familiar with The Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild? They have a wealth of information available on their website, http://www.soapguild.org. Thanks for following us and all the best with your new adventure!

      • I am. I love going to the site for info! If (big if) I ever decide to go further than a hobby with soapmaking it’s the first place on my list to join! That will be at least a year, if not more, away though. 🙂
