|the unset disaster soap scooped out of the moulds|
This post is about how to fix a soap batch with too much fat. If you have used too much caustic you can just melt the soap and add the amount of fat you need to fix it, but if its way too much caustic you might be better to use it for laundry soap.
This is the first time I've tried a hot process method and it was interesting to see how it worked.
First I made a batch of soap using the cold process method (and with 2% extra caustic). I started it in a big pot so that I could fit all of the ruined soap in as well, and set up the pot in a double-boiler (my biggest cheese making pot, this is one way to get your cheese pots REALLY clean!).
