I have been mulling soap making over in my head for years now and about to dive in. One thing I have not found an answer for, actually the only thing, is this: is curing better at room temp or refrigerated. Is there a set temp to increase the quality of the soap during the curing process.

Thanks,
Jon

I only use the fridge when I have a soap batch setting up and don't want it to gel or over heat. Once my soap is unmolded, I always cure at room temp. The type of soap you make and the amount of water used will determine how long to cure. More water in your recipe can mean more time for it to evaporate out so you can get a harder bar. A castille soap needs a few months to cure while most other types of soaps only need a few weeks. But HP soap is ready to use pretty much right away
