Making Soap Cure Quicker

Is there anyway to speed up the curing process of soap besides rebatching? I made a cocoa butter soap using a 40% water discount and just wondered it if would cure quicker with that amount of a discount.

I also learned my lesson about soaping hot :laugh2: I thought my lye water had set long enough and I didn't check them temp(I know dumb me) well it traced really quick.

Well, if by cure you mean lose excess water and get harder faster you might try keeping a fan blowing on it, or putting it somewhere with a dehumidifier. If you meant "mellow" faster I would think a warmer room might help a tiny bit but you run the risk of sweating and all then...

You say 40% discount but that doesn't tell me what the lye concentration is.
