i've been looking around the forum but cant find anything that helps me.

I mainly make melt and pour soaps. Sometimes when i pour the soap into the moulds i get tiny bubbles on the top that dont go away. Normally i try and very carefully spoon them out, but i was wondering if anyone knew how to get rid of them or why they happen?

thanks

The bubbles probably mean you are pouring too hot. Put somerubbing alcohol in a mister bottle & lightly mist the soap just afer you pour it. That will pop your bubbles & give you a smooth finish. Don't worry, the alcohol evaporates.

Bubbles can also occur from stirring too much so be sure not to do that! Otherwise spraying lightly with rubbing alcohol will do the trick!

I just started doing that with my soaps, I am amazed at how wonderful they look without bubbles :)
LOL I felt that way years ago when I started mp and found out about alcohol!
