    Metal shelves, sources for signs/covers/etc?

    I'm guessing this falls under packaging? LOL The store where I have my soap went to the regular steel retail shelving. I'm looking for the sign holders and such, but all I'm finding is having to order 100 of them. I only need like 10 ! Plus I'd like to cover the shelves with something, I know...

    Subbing sugar for salt in scrub recipe changes recipe?

    I've been wanting to play with scrubs and did a bunch of research...I thought. I followed a recipe on WSP's site http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/handmade101/how-to-make-recipes/salt-scrub-scoops-melon.aspx for a salt scrub but subbed in sugar, thinking it couldn't be *that* different. The...

    I couldn't find this on a search...I have a silicone mold thats the right shape and size for a project but I need to add some detailing to it. Trying to figure out if the silicone in a tube would work? Has anyone tried this? I'm reluctant to toally mess up a mold...although I may have too :).

    Will soap keep curing in retail boxes? Or is it a DOS invite?

    I'm curious if anyone lets their soap finish curing in individual retail boxes (the cardboard ones with a cutout)? I just started using boxes and I like the idea of being able to just grab and go off the shelf instead of wait a month or six weeks then box and label and if I made a ton of batches...

    Me vs DOS (and more)...the epic battle

    Some of you may remember my attempts to figure out what caused a round of DOS'ing in my soaps. I decided to post the battle in case it helps anyone else! It all starts a few months ago....

    ISO vanilla....never thought I'd say that...

    I am NOT a fan of vanilla for the past 10 years due to a bad experience with vanilla flavored medicine (blech) but I am getting multiple requests for vanilla soap. Even after explaining it'd be a brown soap, they still want it. Normally I'd go order several versions and do a bunch of testing but...

    Banana Boat lotion smell?

    Apparently searching the forum for "banana" will turn up nothing like this.... A friend requested soap that smells like the banana boat tanning oil. I haven't smelled it in years and all I remember is coconut? I told them they are getting M&P because coconut is tricky LOL. Has anyone found a...

    Hot car storage (oops) and no DOS?!?

    It's official, soap does what it wants!:shark: Was cleaning out the console of my car (that I hardly ever open) and found that I had forgotten a bar of soap I was taking in to show a coworker. Plastic shrink wrapped , and I know it was in there at least 4 months , possibly 5. The temperature...
