    What would happen if you used soap the day after you make it. Dh is chomping at the bit to try the hunters soap. Will it just use up quicker since it didnt cure?

    I cure mine in the oven so we use the next day.
    Do a tongue test if it zaps or tingles don't use it yet.

    I don't like using soap that hasn't cured- it makes my skin feel awful. Dry, tight and itchy.

    My hubby always steals a bar ..... :nooo He doesnt even ask!!! I end up missing a few every time I make apple jack n peel. And I have had him steal some and hide them so I dont sell them. I had told him about the zap test to tounge thing, thinking that would deter him - I think he licks the soap and then runs to use it... Crazy man! :crazy So I can not say it is the best thing in the world and I like mine cured, but he refuses to wait; so be it.

    I always use fresh pieces, my new mold cuts 3 tiny slivers extra when cut as a log instead of a loaf, once cured enough to cut your bars are fine to use, just soft and dissappears quickly. Vicki

    I like to wait at least a week and then try the zap test. But there have been certain kinds I get impatient on and have used them before hand, 48 hrs after pouring and those are usually my experimentals :twisted. Tammy
