    How long, O Lord? How long?

    I cure my soap for 4 weeks, no need to wait 6 weeks if they are done. Use less water, they should be hard in a matter of days, then wait for no zap. I also do hp in a crockpot. Try it.

    Palm Oil Remelt

    I always remelt mine when I first recieve it, then I never remelt the whole thing, just smaller portions as I make my soap batters. I dont think it will be effected if you keep melting it, but not necessary.

    no freezer paper. substitute?

    i always use contact paper or shelf liner, its awesome and not much measuring, just take a piece going the short way then place one the long way on top of it, no taping, and you can wash it and reuse it. does that make sense? I posted a pic somewhere!

    which do soap customers hate more-- palm oil or beef tallow?

    Re: which do soap customers hate more-- palm oil or beef tal ive never had anyone ask about palm, although people dont seem to like the animal fat issue, so I dont use it. I agree with the one lady, there is a ton of foods etc made with palm, it would be difficult to stay away from it.
