Apostle Paul has also converted me to the RTCP method. Preach it brother!Soapmaker Man said:Yea, I store it in a bleach container, which is, HDPE. It has the built in pour spout and I can pour very slowly and carefully and not spill a drop. I use all laundry containers for my premixed recipes, lye solutions. Love RTCP!

Room Temperature Cold Process
Which I partially do as well! I do not premix my lye because of my children, but I do have all of my oils premixed in 5 gallon containers.
My premixed lye solution contains no goat milk, only by weight 50% lye and 50% aloe vera juice, with a touch of silk fibers when hot. I soap at a 30% solution and my lye premix is at a 50% solution. To bring it down to the 30%, is where the cold goat milk comes in. I also add dried goat milk powder to bring it up to 100% goat milk fats. I have probably confused you, but it is all math and that is why I have light coloured goat milk soaps.kooldad said:So let me ask, what does RTCP stand for?
Since you make goats milk soap, I assume your lye solution is goats milk and lye. You said you store it in a bleach container. Since it contains goats milk do you need to keep it refrigerated? Or is it safe to store at room temperature once the goats milk and lye are combined?
