The soap was absolutely usable, and was actually very nice. It wasn't ash, didn't rinse off. I was a fairly new soaper at the time, and I haven't seen anything like it since. Mysteries of soap it must have been.Well i sure hope it doesnt happen again!
Love your swirls on your soap in the picture! Did it clean up and were you able to use it? Mine will be "for my family soap" as long as its safe after curing a while..
