I know I wouldn't be able to cut my soap once fully cured. It's like a brick. Heck, if I wait too long it's hard to cut with my wire cutter.

Yes same here and I use a high percentage of OO. I don't know what recipe they use but one I bought that way had EDTA added. Not sure of that made a difference. Probably it's the percentage of ingredients.

I got into it with someone on a Facebook soap page who said that HP is ready to use the next day.

Soap Making? LOL. I argue with people on that group all the time about selling 6 months in, whether or not their soap is 'natural' (spoiler: it's not) and curing time. The best ones are the ones who can't even bother to address my comment specifically, they just 'talk over' me.

Mine would break my wires on my wire cutter. My hubby hates it when he has to replace wires!!

Fortunately, I haven't had to replace any as yet. 2 years and going strong. Now I've probably jinxed myself.

My cutter is 13 years old (maybe I've had it longer? IDK) and I've only had to replace 1 wire because I was 'stupid' enough to try and cut a frozen loaf of M&P. HAHA
But almost every soap I make has either M&P embeds on or in them, and I've never popped a wire cutting them.
Let's hope I didn't just jinx myself. LOL

I've read that too and thanks for boiling that down for me. I wish that book would speak English sometimes.
