Sorry, I might be a tad cynical today.:evil:
I joined them, then left them once I realized that:Not cynical at all!
But this post and some other recent ones about the garbage being touted on Facebook groups as knowledge make me very glad I never joined any of them
I used to think HP didnt need a cure when I first started about 3 years ago! I read about HP not needing a cure all over on blogs and I never took recipes from them (always ran them on a calculator) but since saponification was "done" I figured that it was ok to use. I didnt really realize the difference that cure itself makes because I read it so many times that HP is good to go when its done and I didnt have any reference at the time. As I soaped more, it became evident. (and I got affirmation of that here)I don't understand where people got the idea that HP soap needs no curing. I've not even made my first batch yet, but I've been researching the saponification process and soap making for months now and not seen anything that suggested HP needs less cure time. My assumption, based on the research was that hot or cold, lye is lye and it takes time to complete the process, and no amount of rushing it will change that. My only confusion so far was regarding water discount and if it shortened cure time, and even that, I wasn't sure of, so I asked.
That pic of that FB post about the kid using the fresh soap upset me. That kid could be scarred by the lye. Ugh.
