Colouring surfactant mixes!

I know the kids who come to my craft groups think I'm being no-fun Susan when I suggest trying a drop of colour in the surfactant-y mixes and adding it drop by drop if you want a more vivid colour...but here's the result. Take a look at this body wash. I admit it, I went a little overboard with the colours and really wasn't paying as much as attention as I should have (I was listening to a podcast of "Age of Persuasion" - brilliant!) and I added too much yellow.

This bottle has been sitting for about a month, waiting for me to use it, and you can see the bottom 1/8th or so is much lighter than the rest. Not a big deal for yellow, probably a bigger deal for pink or red!
