Room Temperature soap making saved my life! Really, my personality doesn't work with taking temps. When I first made soaps I hot processed and wasn't concerned about temps, except for adding fragrance not to flash it off. I swore by HP, but I knew cold process was coming. I could see it on the horizon. I still didn't want to deal with those dang temps. Anyway, I don't have to worry about that anymore. I master batch my go-to recipe to have all the oils ready and available. I make my lye solution a few hours in advance - if I'm in a hurry, I put it in the fridge - prep other ingredients in advance, so all I need to do is measure my oils from the batch and go. Soap is made fast when the pep is done and I don't have to worry if the oils and lye solution are at the appropriate temps. I don't think I'll CP soap any other way again. Happy soaping makes for Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious soap! Eh?
