    rebatching

    Appreciate input! Irish Lass, yes, i did try hot process too, and it was easier; you're right! I do think I like the smoother soaps with cp though too. Well, I had disappointing results recently with adding clays for color, so I think I will search threads for this new issue with coloring...
