    making sachets

    What is corn cob filler? Is it the stuff for lining animal cages? I have some beautiful Asian fabric I am going to use for the sachets I want them to smell as good as they look. Thank you for your reply. Ginger

    How do you wrap your CP soaps???????

    I use clear pillow boxes they look good stay clean and people can smell the soap . I got a lot of good feedback on the packaging at the show I did last week end. If you would like to see how they look you can check out my blog link on the bottom of this post. Ginger

    Orange Zest in rebatched soap?

    I use dried zest when I rebatch goats milk. I used fresh once and the were mold issues that looked yucky when it showed up. The dried works fine for me and it adds a little scrubby action to the soap. Ginger

    packaging question

    It was cp goats milk about 3 weeks old so maybe the heat and the freshness of the soap has something to do with it. Fabric is a nice idea. I wonder if a waxed paper would work in place of parchment so that I can keep the look of my packaging because I like the way it looks? Or what about...
