It's not always the FO but in certain cases that's all I can blame it on. Some folks have good luck spritzing the tops with rubbing alcohol which I did for this batch. Others say covering the top and cutting off the air supply helps reduce ash. I did both and still got ashy tops so go figure! I always get ash on my salt bars no matter what FO so it could be environmental conditions too.So if a soap develops ash it's a function of the FO?
