Yep,would seem like it would melt instead of expand

Microwave ovens work by "irritating" the water molecules in an object, thereby causing heat. Due to the way soap is made, the water is trapped in little "soap cages", for lack of a better term. When the water heats up, it expands. Soap, as you would probably assume due to your idea it would melt, is flexible. So, it causes the "cages" to expand, thus the expanding soap.

which would explain why it feels like foam and steam came out of the microwave when I opened it.

Y'all gotta stop watching MTV all the time, and watch a little Discovery Channel. You might actually learn something.

When you're brain starts to feel full, switch over to Cartoon network. it helps...
