Droplets on un-molded soap

by Rosie
(Los Angeles CA)

I infused oil with calendula and made a strong calendula tea for my soap. Then I proceeded to make room-temp soap, however, when I went ahead to de-mold, I saw lots of droplets on my soap. I don't know if I ruined the soap.


I read previous questions and apparently the soap can experience overheating. Is this the case for any method used? or primarily room temperature method? How can I reduce the chances of overheating? Any rules of thumb?

Answer:

I'm thinking they are just condensation.

Dab at the water droplets with white paper towel. If they do not turn the paper towel brown, then they are probably a result of condensation settling on your soap.

If they burn the paper towel (turn it brown) then they may be lye droplets. If this is the case, I would throw out the soap.

Good luck,
Cathy
