I made a facial bar soap last night and it is in a "loaf" mold. Stuck it in the freezer (contains milk) and pulled it out this morning, knowing I couldn't cut it yet, but hoping it was getting hard. Then I remembered I forgot to add sodium lactate, so I'm thinking it will be a while before I can cut it.
In the meantime, is there anything I can do to kinda speed up the process? Would putting a fan on it help at all?
Ideas??

Give it some time, since it sounds like your soap didn't gel. Putting a fan on it won't help, since the soap is inside the mold, where the air from the fan won't go.

I don't gel my soaps and generally wait 3 days before I can cut them... :wink:

Aarrrggghhhh.....don't know why I asked. I already knew the answer (hanging my head in disappointment). I guess I've had more success recently with other batches I popped in the freezer, so expected the same this time. Not so!
Okay, practicing patience, practicing patience, practicing patience......and not liking it......

Carrie, I am curious... what would you tell your children when they want to open their presents several days before Christmas? :)
