hi, and good morning to yall. im in texas and have started my journey on soaps. i went from cold process to hot process, and thought i was a genius....for a moment till it turned to a gloppy mess. my guisness was thinking i could add distilled water to my HP soap after it had cured. it started to become a paste, and i left it for a week and now its a glob. any ideas of how to save it? rebatching? my recipe was perfect, all calculatipons ans such measured to the T. just added distilled water to the bars and left them in a mason jar. its a goo, so i am stuck now on how to rebatch it into a loaf again, or can the goo have more water added and become liquid soap? if its a failure i will toss it, im just one of those who will do whatever i can to save it if possible. tried rebatching a soap i attempted to make glycerin from and since i used WAY to much salt and the directions missed a very important step as to lkeeping the mix hot, it was done cold, so i lost 40 oz on that and was hoping someone else here is a genuis and can help my problem. thanks in advance for this forum and i so look forward to any and all responses. as of now i have it cooking in a crockpot to hopefully evaporate the excess water out, well have it covered here at first as it heats and see where it goes.
