1, HDPE (recycle code #2) & PP (recycle code #5) are also safe for mixing a lye/water solution. 2, An equal weight of ice can also be used to replace some of the water to help keep the temperature from climbing too high. 3. Advice on how to clean up the equipment would be nice. 4. ALL of the equipment used for soap making should be dedicated to the craft and NEVER again be used for food prep. This last point really needs to be added to the video when discussing soap making safety.
