    Joy is the best! But a good taper does not need that .they came up with no
    pock….because soaphas phosphorus in it it will eventually kill you!!!
    Learn to be a good taper without the cheats.and smooth wall does require a
    third skim and it requires the whole wall to be skin solid..guaranteed no

    Yes, and the soap makes it really easy to sand too. However, the finished
    product will also be very easy to scratch and ruin. So, soap is a very bad
    idea. The homeowner is also going to wonder why it smells like soap. What
    will you tell them. Further, if soap is a good idea, why don’t they
    manufacture it that way? Soap is a bad idea. I’ve tried it. Dawn ultra was
    pretty good with lavender scent. Still, soap is an all around bad idea.
    Pretty amature too! Makes the coated joints too soft. Do it the right way!
    Don’t add soap!

    Why not just plaster the lot. You’re obviously skilled enough to do it – it
    wouldn’t take any longer and elimate the need for all that messy sanding to
    follow>

    I guess I can blame my health problems on Sunlight soap because I’ve been
    using all my life. I used it as hand soap and in the shower to wash off the
    grease and diesel fuel as well as doing dishes. It’s nice to know my genes
    and our North American diet and habits and industrial exposures are not to
    blame. I think we should sue governments for letting such a dangerous
    product into the household market. Mind you, now that I know it’s made from
    butter, maybe I’ll put it on toast.

    Your showing your self to be a true drop out. It’s okay tho, because I
    forget sometimes that most guys in this trade only have a 9th grade
    education, Learn a little science. Try not to be socially retarded.
    Remember even an idiot looks intelligent with his mouth closed.

    Wow. do you know what soap is made of. No . Okay then next time just add
    three sticks of butter. stick butter . Its the main property of sunlight
    soap.

    Being a painter, I wouldn’t want to follow you into a house. Any soap
    residue left on the wall is going to fisheye my paint and cause me major
    headaches. If you don’t believe me, go paint the area around your shower.
    The residue from you bathing floats around and coats most bathrooms. I
    understand you’re trying to make your life easier, but it’s probably
    messing up the guy coming in behind you.

    Use glycerin. your can find this at most stores. Unless you own stocks in
    Sunlight Soap and just like the lemon fresh smell. But really breathing
    soap can cause a a fluid build up in your lung and long term exposure can
    lead to pulmonary edema . You look like a nice kid , but your gonna hurt
    people with you advice.
