I am a complete beginner to melt and pour soap making. I attempted today to make a layered soap. I poured the first layer into the mould, waited for it to harden then poured in another layer, waited for it to harden and poured on the final layer. When i removed it from the mould i cut it into 6 bars and the bottom layer of soap fell off each one :-( Can anybody advise me on where i went wrong please?

Right here, silly!
Welcome Emily! :)

When making layers with MP, if you spray the top of each firmed-up layer liberally with alcohol before pouring on the next layer, they will stick to each other. Do that for each layer and things will go much better for you. :)

I use either 70 or 91%. Either seems to work fine.
