HP~Hot Process Soap
The hot process begins by adding lye to water. This simple step is actually slightly dangerous, since people who accidentally add water to lye will inadvertently cause a minor explosion; the lye must be added to the water, not the other way around. Next, the lye mixture is added to heated fat. Some people like to do this in their crockpot. The mixture is stirred for a while before adding any desired extras, such as the aforementioned oatmeal, dye, orange peel, etcetera. The mixture is then stirred a little more to make sure that everything is evenly distributed before being poured into molds Note HP Soap are made with some fat’s people do not like Beef Tallow is one.
