    Do temperature extremes make any difference? I live in northern Arizona; nowhere near as hot as Phoenix but my garage can get pretty hot in the summer.

    I tried cheesecloth but it just wads up and sticks to itself. I got some fabric shower curtains for $2 at Bargain hunt so now I have those draped over my wrap and secured with binder clips.

    Absolutely. You need to store your soaps in a temperature controlled room. If you store in really hot area it will likely cause DOS and other issues. I keep my soaps in a spare bedroom, door closed, fan going and no sunlight. Heat 69 in the winter, air 70 in the summer if it gets really hot. Currently moving my soaps into an enclosed carport that is somewhat heated but no air so will be investing in an air conditioner. The cool isn't bad but heat is not a good thing.
