If you are just beginning to make handmade soap (as is a friend of mine), keep your eyes open at garage sales and junk stores for a storage cabinet big enough to hold most of your soap equipment. A soap maker tends to accumulate essential oils, clays, colorants, jars, tins, bottles, crock pots, distilled water, misc. funnels, cutters, freezer paper, etc. You will grow into it faster than you think!

A rolling wire rack or utility cart is useful for keeping this and that close to the soap making area. Oh, and you'll need to improvise some drying shelves or racks for the curing soap!

I was just getting my equipment out to make soap, and was reminded to tell you, if you have a feline mascot, put him in another room with a closed door while you are making soap! He just can't help being curious.
