What is the least amount of total water you can use when making soap? I've been using 30%, but if the majority evaporates out, is it safe to go lower without messing your soap up? I've seen some recipes that use 28%. If you get below a certain % does your soap not mix well? I ran across a lady asking this at a fair and the guy that sold the soap only knew as far as his recipe did, he didn't know what to tell her. But I'm glad i heard her ask and am gathering she was inquiring about shortening the time it takes cure and water to evaporate out of bars, which makes sense. But surely there is a low that is too low, right?
