pour & cure

1. Carefully pour the mixture into your soap mould. (More information on moulds in notes section).

2. Place the moulds containing the soap in a warm place where the temperature is fairly constant and leave it undisturbed for 48 hours. This is to prevent the soap from cooling down too quickly and separating. 

3. Check the soap after 48 hours. It should be still slightly warm. The soap should be about the consistency of a soft cheese, hard enough to handle. If it is still too soft, insulate it again and check it in another 24 hours. 

4. Wearing your rubber gloves, carefully remove the soap from the mould and cut into blocks if necessary. 

5. Stand the soap blocks on edge on white baking paper or other clean paper that won't leave marks on the soap (ie not newspaper) and place in dry dust free area to cure.

6. Leave the soap for eight weeks to cure. 

You are now ready to use your soap. Take a long hot shower and enjoy!
