So, with MP, what do you wrap it in? Plastic or paper? I just put a sort of wrap around label on my CP, it's not covered completely. But I keep it in a cupboard away from dust etc until I want to use it. At the moment, it's only for gifts.
Do you store your cured soap wrapped or unwrapped.
Well....after just taking 12 batches off the cure rack to make room...I am exhusted! I do not sell, but I wrap nicely and attach labels for my give-aways. I do not wrap them like that until the give-away. I store in brown paper lunch bags, sealed with tape, soap name written on outside of bag, and stored on shelves in a dark, cool cabinet. If I think the recipient will use the soap almost immediately I will either shrink wrap or wrap in heavy duty saran type wrap. Usually though, I wrap in rice paper. Until then, they hang out in those paper bags!! My soaps cure in 6-8 weeks in a very dry climate so I do not have shrinkage after I wrap.
Growing up in a large family,5 boys,3 girls ,nieces,nephews,cousins,and a lot of the neighborhood kids.My mom had to buy some serious soap,lol we went through it like crazy.
How about "Family Economy" sized soaps? Regular sized bars,just packaged in something as simple as plastic" bread bags." $1.79 at the supermarket.
Use up some tags that you might be discontinuing with.
She would buy bags that had 5 bars,smelled really good,I know she didn't pay more then $5.00, a bag. She always bought huge quantities of it every month. That might help some of you that are selling them.or just have soap around that need a home,promote new scents to your line.
"Family Variety Packs" I just don't see packs of soap like that anymore.
People can see and smell before they buy.Might work well at craft shows.
