    Definitely cross your fingers, it may just work out, but rework your recipe into weight if you can for next time.

    Castor oil use?

    When I use Castor, I use 5% and add it with all my oils. The soap is smooth and lathers beautifully.

    Oils that make a hard soap

    You can also use olive oil. Soapcalc indicates that olive oil makes a soft bar but with a longer curing period I get bars that are like bricks.

    CPOP Question - When is it ready to sell?

    CPOP is CP with the heat added to guarantee a does not accelerate the curing time. It still takes a minimum of 4 weeks for CPOP to be ready...HP will be your safest bet.

    Liquid Soap anyone?

    Don't do anymore than 40 % coconut oil if you would like a thicker soap. I thicken with borax, but that doesn't work if there is way too much coconut oil.

    Difference between Dove and my soap?

    Keep in mind that Dove bars are synthetic detergents, they are not made from real soap, which explains why they rinse off so easily.

    What size are your bars?

    Mine are about 3.5 x 2.5 x 1.25...of course they end up shrinking a bit after the cure...
