Hello, I am new here and making my rounds to all the different subjects. The more I read the more questions I come up with like How and Why do you put Silk in soap? How do you make Room Temp soap? Where are all the good fragrances? See!! So many questions....but the question that brought me here is...if a person has a standard recipe for CP can you premix the lye in large batches and just pour the set amount when needed? I have no small children to be concerned about. Hope this wasn't too many questions in one area. Thanks for any help and answers and I promise to offer my thoughts and experience on other topics where I can.
