Glycerin soap flop
by Alta Carstens
I made glycerin soap...rebatched tallow soap....all the fat came to the top while I was busy stirring in the double cooker...had to scoop it off....now my soap stays wobbly in the moulds...won't dare to take it out. Do I discard it, or is there something I can still do about it? What did I do wrong...would SO much like to make my own glycerin soap from scratch, although I know it's a lot of trouble making it.
I'm actually kind of confused by your question.
When you say glycerin soap, are you referring to transparent soap or regular cold process soap?
The term "glycerin soap" is often used for both types of soap.
Not sure why your soap would seperate during the rebatching process but I'm certain the soap isn't right if it did. I wouldn't use it.
I also have no idea what might have caused this to happen. Sorry.
My mother and I used to make transparent soap and we used Catherine Failors book "Transparent Soapmaking". The soap it produced was great and not exceptionally hard to do.
