OK, soap chemists, what is cause for rust building up on my Martin de Candre shave soap tin?
3 yrs ago, I repotted some soap from the MdC original glass jar, to a smaller 2-oz flat tin with tin screw top lid. Good for travel.
But the rims in both the bottom and top are now rusting.
Easy. Lots of recipes.
Get fresh basil, wash, de-stem.
Mine included parmesan cheese, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, roasted; basil as last step.
In food processor.
I added a dash of salt and some lemon juice to season.
Use it as topping on just about anything.
