Hey Hawaiian (don't know what else to call you since you didn't sign
your post),

It would help if we knew what your recipe is in order to figure out
why your soap is going rancid so quickly. A well made bar of castile
soap shouldn't do that. What superfat are you using?

Also, "castile" has a variety of definitions these days. Some say it
must be 100% olive oil. Some say it must be 60% olive oil. Others say
it just means 100% vegetable oils. If you belong to one of the last 2
groups, I have heard rice bran oil is a good substitute although I
have never tried it, myself.

A little more info would help you get better, more informed answers.

You can reply to me off-list also.


ps...Just curious...how long have you been making soap?
