Will I need to buy gallons of water to make cp soap, or will I be able to use well water? As far as I can tell we don't have hard water, but I'm not sure about minerals ect... Has anyone tried using well water and gotten favorable results?
I am in the white areas, so I may try it and see what happens. Then I may switch to distilled water.Page 2 of this article has some average values for Alabama.
If you're not in the white, I would use distilled water for best results. My soaps use no more than a pint of water for a 40 oz loaf mold, and at around a buck a gallon for distilled, why take the chance? There might be iron or sulphur compounds in well water, too.
