I'm no MP expert but I don't think it needs a cure time like CP. I think it does benefit from a bit of time to dry a bit and to "set" - maybe like a week? But IMO it's fine to use right away - it just might melt away faster.I just read that MP sweats. If it is attracting water from the air, does the soap start dissolving/melting when it sweats? Will it be a problem to store on a shelf long term unless I wrap it in plastic?
Also, does MP need time to dry out after cooling, and does it benefit from curing like CP?
You don't need to seal it in plastic, assuming you live in a house with heat or air. It tends to sweat if you're outside at a craft show on a nice, warm humid day. I would store in something just b/c dust and hair like to adhere to soap. But you could put it in a drawer, or put all of the bars in a cardboard box until you need them.
