    Hello again everyone,

    I was a vendor at a fair this weekend and I wrapped my soap in the flat cellophane bags MMS sells. I do have soap left over, do I need to take them out of the bags so they can breath. Or can they stay inside the bags for a couple of weeks and be fresh enough to sell at a later date?

    Also, would putting the bagged soap in the refrigerator keep them fresh longer and keep them from sweating?

    Thank you for all your help,
    Catherine Carter

    CP soap is best for storage not in plastic of any kind. I don't know any thing about the m & p type. With that said, I don't think anything will happen to cp soap in a cello bag in a couple weeks, but you might want to consider some different ways to wrap your soap that would give you more options for storage. I use paper cigar bands and cardboard storage boxes but there are many great ideas out there. Someone else will have ideas for you to consider.

    Just another thought on the above subject. If you want to keep your labels clean and keep stick fingers off your soap, try the soap bands sold by MMS under shrink I believe the last time I got them. I put these over my bars which are in a museum shop. The ends are open which allows the soap to breathe but keeps it nice and clean. Check out the sizes. I find the "Dan's" size fits my soaps.

    Thanks for all of your helpful comments. Are the Dan's bands a plastic wrap? I have been now using scrapbook paper to wrap around the soap. It looks very elegant but it takes so much time that I become a little bitter and want to charge everyone $15 per bar for all the work I went to. I think I need a better and faster way of doing this.

    Thanks,
    Catherine

    Catherine,

    The Dan's Bands are a plastic shrink wrap. It doesn't take very long to put these on a bar of soap.
