Yesterday, I made my first ever batch of liquid soap. I used Irishlass' s tutorial from http://www.soapmakingforum.co/showthread.php?t=46114
It all went pretty smoothly until today, when I went to dilute it. I checked a couple of places, no zap. I only wanted to dilute some of my paste today, so I git it diluting in jars, then started transferring the rest of the paste into a zip lock bag for storage. Right in the middle of the bottom was an area that was whiter and more opaque than the rest. I tested it, and it still zaps. Now what? Can I just leave it to sit for awhile longer? http:// http://www.soapmakingforum.com/showthread.php?t=46114

Yep, patience is a virtue. Sometimes soapers get too worried about fixing things right away when a little "tincture of time" is the best remedy.

Thanks everyone, I'll let it sit! On a positive note, at least I now I know what zap feels like, I was always a little worried I wouldn't recognize it!;-)
