Question though: How soon after steaming can I shrinkwrap my soap? I’m assuming I need to let it dry from the steaming first, so this may be a “no...

    Hello!

    Hi all! I'm new to this group but not new to soaping. When I have questions and Google for an answer, this forum's threads often answer them for me via Google. So grateful for the generous hearts of soapers!
