This might be a silly question, but How do you prepare a Pringles can for cp? do I need to cut off the bottom part that is alum...? I really want to attempt using this, but do not know how to prepare the can.... Any help would be appreciated...
I do it because I use the original opening with the lid waxed on as the bottom and the cut off end as the top to pour in the soap. Then I remove the waxed on lid and push the soap log out that end.Deda said:Why do you cut the ends off?
Woo-hoo, post the pics. I do the exact same - in a mitre box and they are always off! I think the mitre box issue for me is that the soap is higher than the sides so I can not do a straight downward slice. So, since Paul is having his SMF sale, I went ahead and got the log cutter. It will allow me to adjust the thickness, too. Good enough excuse for me.jadiebugs1 said:My only problem with it was......How to cut it straight??? I cut the bars in my miter box like I do my M&P slices, but they didn't all turn out very "even". But the pringles can worked great! (I didn't insulate by the way, was afraid it would over heat and bust through the can!)

I just spray PAM in mine and when it is ready, I peel the can off like a can of biscuits. I really, really like my round soaps. So easy to cut. You can slice them thin for samples or thick for bath use. The ONLY problem is having to eat all of those Pringles just to get the one-time use of the can :shock: . I can't keep doing that.stepibarra said:This might be a silly question, but How do you prepare a Pringles can for cp? do I need to cut off the bottom part that is alum...?

I actually take freezer paper and line the pipe. Then to unmold, flip it upside down and push the log out by using an old Tupperware tumbler, it is the perfect size. Once I have enough to grab onto to, it slides out easily. I do the same with the Pringles can so I can re-use it. Besides, I prefer M&Ms and have not figured out a way to use the bag as a mold.CiCi said:I looked at those pvc pipes and thought about it for a moment, but I thought it wold be too hard to get the soap out. With the pringles cans, they are just too easy...peel and toss.
