Welcome, Annieywang! Newbie hasn't logged on for awhile, but I can answer for her since she mentioned what it was in her post earlier on in the thread. The white stuff on her soap is what is known as ash. I've gotten such ash before on my soap, too. No worries, though....ash is completely harmless, and you can normally wash it right off.
I thought this could be helpful to people, to see what these things looks like.
Ricing, then 2 volcanos, then 2 separating in the mold, and one crack from overheating.
Thank you for posting these. Very helpful to see them!
