I found part of this list on an old soap makers post, and it just hit too close to home.  I can relate to all of these.

You might be a soap addict if:

  • You disdain any soap you didn’t make yourself.
  • You have more essential oils than you do spices.
  • The fridge is full of vegetable oils to be used for soapmaking.
  • You use the stockpot to make soap.
  • You have more “soap” utensils than you do “cooking” ones!
  • You own a stick blender, and use it.
  • You keep coconut oil in the freezer.
  • Your mate has learned NOT to taste that interesting stuff in the casserole dish!
  • You get excited when lye goes on sale.
  • You’ve bought olive oil in the one gallon container.
  • You’re on a first-name basis with the UPS guy.
  • Your house always smells like you’ve swiped the inventory from “The Body Shop”.
  • You carry free samples of soap in your purse, your briefcase and your car, just in case.
  • You try writing off your “work cupboard” as a home business tax expense.
  • You denude your lavender bushes before they’re ready so that your lavender soap looks right.
  • Your husband trips over all of the soap molds hastily stacked in the kitchen.
  • Kitchen? what kitchen? YOU have a test laboratory.
  • You know the difference between M&P and CP.
  • You don’t have friends, you have test markets.
  • You see products in stores and recognize which companies sold the molds.
  • The UPS guy rolls his eyes every time he lugs a box to your house.
