I was going to patienty wait a month for my peppermint soap to cure before starting to use it for making laundry soap, but then I was looking through the book Smart Soapmaking and read a bit about curing that made me think perhaps it might not be entirely necessary for me to wait that long for it to cure. It had only been a week since I had made the soap but, being ever so slightly impatient, that was all the encouragement I needed...I put the book down and got out the grater.
I grated and grated some more. Mixed together a new minty fresh 2 qt jar of laundry soap powder and went off to do a load of laundry. The Impatient Peppermint Laundry Powder worked like a charm.
Needless to say I'm tickled at the idea of no longer buying any soap...not even for doing laundry.
