Soaping in hot climates
I live in Patna, India and our summer temperatures are 40 degrees C and above.
Our winters would be app. 8 degrees centigrade.
How does climate affect tracing or curing time?
Should I be covering after pouring when the weather is hot?Answer:
Climate can affect tracing...especially if it is damp. Excess water is pulled from the air and can lengthen the amount of time it takes to reach a trace. If the environment is dry then trace time is usually shorter.
Since it is quite hot where you are, you probably can avoid using blankets for insulation while the soap sets.
