Hi folks!
I'm interested in trying the trick where you warm the oven to 170 degrees, turn it off as soon as you put your wood mold filled with soap in, and let it sit overnight. I'm wondering, however, if this is okay to do with milk soaps or will it cause overheating? I'd also love to hear any feedback about using this technique. Does it really speed up curing time?
TIA!

Yes you can do that with milk soaps. It will force the gel stage and help the saponification process along. It will not sppeed the curing time and I am sure some will disagree. Nothing helps curing but time.
