As a newbie, I could use some help with “room temperature” from the experienced makers! Room temperature in Fahrenheit for my house is typically in the high 60s or, if I’m feeling chilly I may push the thermostat into the low 70s when the heat is on. Temps are typically in the high 70s or low 80s during the summer. During these early months of my soapmaking journey (with the house in the cooler temperature range) I’ve been starting at about 105 but I’m finding that my batter can cool down a lot if I’m using a recipe that is slow to trace and I’m experimenting with swirls and pours. The batter is cooling to 80 or possibly even a little bit lower. This will become less of a problem as the weather outside gets warmer and the room temperature in my house goes up. I’m pretty clear from what I’ve been reading here on SMF that I should avoid high temps and especially adding cool lye to oils that are close to the boiling point of water. Soaping cooler will also help to slow trace. But I should stay warm enough to keep my hard oils/butters liquid... that’s where I am getting a bit hung up, because it seems to me that some are soaping at room temperature with recipes that have hard oils and butters. So, back to the question - what is room temperature?
