Mixing Sodium Hydroxide – Large Soap Batches

Question:

How do you go about mixing the sodium hydroxide with the water for such big batches of soap?

Answer:

For mixing your sodium hydroxide (lye) you can simply mix it in a five gallon plastic bucket, using one bucket per mold/batch. You can use one of our NaOH (Lye) Tanks and gravity feed it into the Pot Tipper sitting on a floor scale. You can put a scale below the tank valve, zero it out and empty into a bucket.
