Re-Batching...oh how I dislike you.
I have never used a crock pot for soap, so I thought it would be a great experiment for me. I grated up all the soap (resulting in a chance to catch up on some of my shows for a few hours, and one very sore elbow)
Then I stuck the lid on the crock pot, and let it go. One thing I liked about the crock pot vs the bag method, I didn't have to check it near as often. I was able to work on other things while the soap was cooking in the pot.
It was definitely easier to do than the bag method. I decided to use my small wood log mold, very simple and easy to plop the soap into. Once it was all melted and clumps where gone, I plopped it into the log mold. I did see some clumps that didn't get melted all the way when I scooped the soap into the mold.
It's rough, but better than some of the re-batches that I have done in the past. I had so much going on that I forgot about it and waited way to long to slice it up, it was as hard as a rock when I tried to slice it, but I finally managed to get it sliced up!
