Default I want to make HP crock pot goats milk soap, please help me.

I consider myself an experienced CP soap maker although it has been a long time since I have made soap. I have been researching the HP/crock pot method but don't have a great deal of info on using milk as the liquid. Do most soapers mix the lye and frozen milk or do they add milk at the end to the soap mixture?

Any comments or suggestions would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Jolene

It's up to you, just like with CP soap as to when you add milk. Crock Pot soap is the same thing.....but instead of stirring to trace, once you have everything stirred together in the crock pot, you simply let it cook to vaseline stage and then add your scent. It takes a whole lot less scent when you HP or Crockpot, really both are the same...than when you CP soap.

Sondra taught me several years ago. Vicki

Sondra, or Vicki,
What exactly is OP? I mean, I'm sure it must stand for Oven Processed, but is it the same as regular CP and then you gel it in the oven? Or is it something different altogether?
Thanks,
Elizabeth

Yes Elizabeth it is just Cold Processed soap that you pour into the mold and put it in the oven, under the flash point of the fragrance, for 2 hours, turn off the heat and let it gel and cool, cut in about 12 hours. It wicks out so much moisture (and that is all cure is) you really can wrap in just a few days. Vicki

What type of mold will withstand being in the oven for two hours?

would a metal cake pan lined with freezer paper work? how about the silicone shape pans? I make the soap HP and then cut it with the cookie cutters, It works ok, but is a lot of work, have a small window to work in. and then polish the tops off. This would be sooo much easier. In one of the earlier posts from way back, someone thought the fragrance kinda sat in the oven later. has anyone noticed this?

those little silicone heart muffin pans or what ever will even withstand the oven I use 150 degrees or less for 2 hrs but I use mainly my wood mold but yes your metal cake pan will also work
just not reg plastic shoe boxes etc. You can even use a cardboard box.
