I’ve been asked quite often recently how l stop my soaps from getting the ‘ash’ on top that often happens.
Truthfully, l don’t have a clue. Sometimes l do get it, and sometimes l don’t. There’s nothing l do to prevent it, it’s just the luck of the draw for me. And it does happen occasionally, although thankfully not too badly. The soap above – there’s a little bit on the top left hand side.
The middle lavender topped soap in this picture has it too. Again, not too badly.
And this lime soap has some ashing also. This is probably the worst it’s ever been.
Probably my only non-ashing technique is to NOT photograph it LOL!!! Just remember that what you see here in the blog is not always what goes on behind the scenes. For every pretty, posed and photoshopped photo l post, there are probably about 50 crappy, out of focus soap shots that got dumped in the recycling bin for a multitude of reasons. Anything from a breakfast crumb on the corner of the soap to a badly placed fingerprint. And there are plenty of ashed soaps in my soaping history
If there’s anyone out there who can assist with some non-ashing techniques, post them here in the comments, enquiring minds want to know LOL!
