Yea what CPSoaper said!CPSoaper said:It should not hurt it and makes it easier to soap with. However, most oils and butters will last longer when kept in cool, darker places - the fridge is a great place to put them to extend their shelf life. CO has a pretty long shelf life though compared to other oils.
Irena, I can understand that where you live in CA! My friend "Grandpa" from other forums, lives in Florida and has no problems with his 92* from CF! He really loves it and claims it produces a harder and bubblier bar! 8) Mike, from CF, told me a while back that it would not melt unless subjected to high heat, over 92* or if the bucket is left in the sun.soapbuddy said:I have the 92 degree one and it still melts. I have not had any problems with my 50 lb. buckets.
I live in hot Palm Springs. I keep my temps as cool as possible. I also don't gel. I have put my soap mold in the fridge or the freezer to help prevent gel.Eggbert said:Yeah well it's not quite summer yet and its has melted already. I made a batch with it yesterday and so far so good.
What sort of treatment do you give the soap in the first 24hrs in hot weather. I think that a batch went bad because I kept it too warm......I am in queensland, australia so it will be even hotter as we get to the end of the year.
