It was with great fear that I uncovered my soap today. I believe that it set up! I washed my hands with a little strip of it and it had a great lather! I cut it up with a pampered chef veggie cutter because I'm not going out and investing more money into a new soap cutting system and I thought that this left great wedges on it and now...we just wait for two weeks to see how it cures and then I will test the ph levels but I'm pretty sure its going to be ok! It smells DIVINE and has the great look that I wanted for homemade soap!
