I have fingerprints on my latest batch of m&p. What's the easiest way to get them off?

Fingerprints on MandP soap

You know, Bret....I have been wondering about this myself. I have made alot of MandP in the past few months, although now I am CP soaping. I ran into this fingerprint problem early on and I would love to have an answer. What I ended up doing was wearing latex or vinyl gloves for the unmolding and wrapping. Basically, I never touched the unmolded soap with bare fingers...and even at that, I limited my handling of the product. I have noticed that the fingerprints do not show up on the soap when it is no longer fresh out of the mold. But then, I live in a very very dry climate so I do not have sticky or moisture problems with MandP to begin with.

I didn't even think about gloves until I was done unmolding it :)

No dragon, just my husband, who wanted to "help"!

Hey guys, I should make you pay me for this trade secret, but I won't.

Lightly mist the soap with rubbing alcohol. The fingerprints will disapear as the alcohol evaporates :wink: .

fingerprints on MandP soap

Wow! alcohol to the rescue once more! Thanks, Tabithia! I will be making another round or two of MandP for family Christmas gifts before the big day and this is good to know!! My CP soaps (still curing out) are just for me. I have a whole lot of practicing to do before I feel good about giving those away as gifts.

Touch, I think he's poking holes in your soap, Dragon. :lol: I thought about the alcohol too. I use that on CP as well for this purpose and to buff the bars!

Paul.... :wink:

Smells everything & taste everything... EVERYTHING! She also has to see what happens if you scratch everything. It's probably a higher intelligence thing where they are acting as mini scientist & invetigating, but sheesh...
