When making your own recipe, how much water do I need to use for how ever much lye I'm using for a water discount like this?

If I make soap with the recommended (from a lye calc. site) amount of water to lye and put it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees, then turn it off and let it hang out in there with the door closed for 12 hours, how long will it take before I can cut it and how long before I can use it?

Gosh, I haven't checked in here in AGES (had to go back to school, get a job, etc)...nice to see some people enjoyed the tutorial. I popped in to look at it again because I'm teaching my own daughter to make soap today - she's 12, and it's honestly been so long I had to look at my own tutorial!  Roll Eyes

But again, very happy to see people have enjoyed it. I haven't had my own soap in the house in quite some time and it's wonderful having the house filled with these scents again....reminds me of "simpler times" (pre-career!).

On Friday I read the tutorial and all 23 pages of comments.  ^_^   Saturday I picked up all the supplies I needed and Sunday I made soap for the first time!  YAY!  I think it turned out pretty well!  I licked it this morning and no zap!  So, I tried out a piece and it seems to be working great!  I'm very excited!

Yay, that's awesome! Licking it doesn't really mean anything, you still want to let it cure for a bit to get nice and hard so it will last longer!

Thank you so much for this tutorial, I have just made my first batch of soap and you made it ridiculously easy for me!
I cooked it in a crock pot, it took aaages (about 2hrs?) and it kept spitting hot oil at me every time I went to mix it, but I have definitely fallen in love with soap making!

I can't wait to cut it in to bars tomorrow morning......... I'm so excited haha..

Thanks again  Smiley
