I have been using CPOP lately and am having trouble. Every single batch is giving me a thin sticky white bubbly layer on top. I thought it might be soap ash or lye film but I can't find anyone who is describing this a sticky, just a powder and mine is not a power.

Help?? What can I do to prevent this? I tried spritzing alcohol liberally and did not help much.

Thanks!

Are your colorants mixed with glycerin? I've had that problem with the glycerin seeping out on the top during heating & making it sticky.

No, I don't always use colorants but when I do I just mix them with a little bit of oil from my pot. This happens whether I use FOs or EOs, color or no color.
