Soap is not getting hard.

I made soap in a crock pot and cooked it on low heat for 1 hour. The lye test came back good. Should I have cooked the soap longer than an hour because it's not getting hard and it's been in the mold 5 hours.


Answer:

It can take some time for hot process soap to completely cool down and become hard. I find that it sometimes needs to stay in the soap mold overnight.

The length of time it takes to cook the soap can vary. If the soap did not reach the clear vaseline like stage then the soap may not have been cooked long enough.
