I just made another batch of cp soap and it has "ash" on the top. After searching the board, I found out it was because I was peeking at it but I couldn't help my self. I will have to learn to control myself on the next batch. LOL. Now the only thing I didn't read is, is it necessary to remove the ash before I use it ( I know it has to cure) or can I just leave it there? Also how long before you should notice it starting to harden. My first batch was yesterday so it's been a little over 24 hours and it's still soft but not as soft as this morning. Does that sound normal?

The ash is cosmetic. You can leave it on or trim; it's a matter of preference. Your soap should get harder every day and be pretty firm in two weeks. I know, it seems like such a long time but wait 'til you see how nice they are after six weeks (or six months). They just get better with age. :smiley2:
