I know my picture isn't great but, as you can see, I unmolded my soap and cut it into bars this morning. It can't be very caustic-I did not use gloves and my skin seems to be okay from handling the soap. Of course, I rinsed my hands a lot to be safe. I ended up with 18 bars that range from 3 1/2 to 4 oz each plus I cut off the ends so I have a couple of samples to use myself in a week or two. Some of this will be rebatched and scented, remolded, etc. Some I will leave as is for sale to those who are allergic to scents or just like to have unscented soap. I like it unscented myself so it won't interfere with whatever perfume I decide to wear for the day.
I have learned a lot for the next time but my first batch has been very successful and I am still very excited about the whole process.
