JooSoap workshop@Siivouspäivä etkot 2013

Siivouspäivä, cleaning day is now a big day for friends of secondhand and urban culture.

On 22nd May, Siivouspäivä etkot(pre-party) event, we had 2 workshops with altogether 17 people participated hands-on making and other more people joined for discussions.

Although the weather was rainy outside, we still successful completed this event and had fun. I hope everyone had a great experience with us and enjoy using their JooSoap when it’s ready.  🙂

JooSoap workshop@Siivouspäivä etkot No electricity needed, all tools were compacted in two bags with new design of instruction, waiting labels, notecards (download here). 🙂

The workshop started from watching JooSoap introduction video (watch again here: JooSoap video) to have a brief understanding of making this type of eco-soap.

Due to the safety concern inside of the Helsingin Energia office, we did the lye water mixing part outside.

Some participants brought their own containers, scent oil they liked, and even own used cooking oil from home to the workshop.

Gloves on! Let’s start making!!
