My soap is firming up very quickly, almost to quick to work with. I am using the Kaoline clay and adding it just before trace. should I add it at different time? I am also adding T.D. to the lye solution? any suggestions? I am adding 1 tsp. per lb. of oil
Thanks

Quickly setting soap
by: Cathy

Kaolin clay is not likely the cause of your soap setting up quickly. Nor the titanium dioxide.

Check out the troubleshooting page, specifically question #8 for possible causes of soap setting up too quickly.

Your soap has seized in the pot.
