Soap still soft

by Abby

After the soap reaches a light trace, is it normal that it's soft?


I made soap, for the first time (a new comer) Is it normal for it to be soft. Will it harden during curing time? Thank you, Abby

Answer:

Just after soap has reached a light trace it is still very liquid. You continue to stir until the soap reaches a thick trace and then pour the soap into a soap mold.

After you insulate the soap for around 24 hours it should be solid. You can then unmold it and cut it. Sometimes it can still be a little soft...if that is the case then leave it for another 24 hours before cutting.

For detailed instructions on making handmade soap read the cold process soap making tutorial.

Good luck,
Cathy
