I have Earlene link, guess I will get a roll. Is only 2 dozen soaps, and I might not used it again, so I was looking for a cheap alternative.

Which made me think about Glad cling wrap? Since it is for food, maybe is like the

BTW Thank you all!
I tested the food wrap idea out using my impulse sealer to see if it would work as a shrink wrap. It kind of does work, but not as well IMO. Perhaps some brands are better than others for use with the heat sealing method. Besides the impulse sealer, you also need a heat gun when doing the shrink wrap method, and just so you know, a standard hand-held hair dryer doesn't get quite hot enough. And if course, smell-through is not the goal of food wrap.

But if you're thinking only of using the food wrap without a heat source because of equipment costs, I would suggest you give it a try with one bar and keep another bar (same batch) wrapped in your normal way (whatever that might be). Then compare them over time to see how the food wrapped bar fares.

I have the impulse sealer, and a heat gun! I am going to try the food wrap, and let it see for a couple of weeks, see how it goes.

I don't really need it until November.

Thank you all, you guys are so helpful!

I have such great news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To shrink wrap my melt and pour soaps, I use this product. Got is at Walmart clearance for 2.50, and bought a couple of boxes waaaaay back.

I was thinking that I can always smell though, so I decided to email them, and this is the response I got:

"Thank you for e-mailing ShurTech Brands. We appreciate your interest in our products.

The indoor window kit does contain a polyolefin shrink film.
