Dear Friends, I made the batch with the recipe below and after 3 days now it still isn't hard enough to take out of the mold. The only thing I did differently this time was add a little more distilled water based on the higher percent of sodium lactate, per recommendation. Any ideas or thoughts on why this didn't harden? Thank you! Dave

I would just give it more time....if its in a silicon mold, that could take more than a week in the mold. Also, the weather can affect the soap-springtime=rainy times over here in the derby city
