Kymber Posted August 6, 2006 Share Posted August 6, 2006 I made 2 batches of soap yesterday. One being a mango shea bar and the other is a recipe I have used before. I wanted to change the recipe a bit and add more shea to it to make it a bit more moisturizing. I also wanted to make a 4# batch . I ran it through soap calc to get the lye water ratio and the adjustment on the oils. I ahd also run it through the calculator on MMS to get the percentages. Made the soap........insulated it and left it. I did check it before I went to bed and it did the gel thing. This morning I checked the soap and it is soft....very very soft! Like it didn't set up. Almost soupy in the middle yet. I poured 4 mold soaps with leftovers and they also gelled and set up but not real hard yet but appear to be OK. I have no clue what is going on with it! The outside edges of the log are setting up...will the rest set up? Do I just leave it in the mold for a few weeks till it gets hard enough to cut? Or did something go haywire and it is too soft and won't set up? And if so do I throw it out? This is the first time I have had one that didn't firm up overnight.
