I stuck to demonstrating with my Fireballs soap. I am using a serrated knife but that is not necessary. A friend gave me this knife to cut my Scrubby soap with. I use whole loofah with that and you need the serrated knife to push right through the loofah.
Something I didn't tell you the other day was that I use index cards to write my recipe on. I have learned the hard way to make a new card with every batch I make. I keep the card with the soap till I put labels on it. It is hard to remember which bar is what when you have a dozen or so batches to put labels on. After a few sniffs and I have a hard time telling the difference. Especially when you use similar essential oils. I know this seems crazy but when I set my booth up I can smell the difference but by time the customers come I can hardly smell the soap. People come over and tell me how good it smells. I agree but really I can't smell anything.
There is a trick to getting soap out of plastic molds when it doesn't want to come out. Stick it in the freezer for a little while. There are times when I have forgotten it and ended up with frozen soap. I just let it defrost and I am all set. Like I mentioned before when you use a citrus essential oil the soap is softer and takes longer to harden up to get out of the mold. Plastic molds are the hardest to get the soap out of. You just have to have patience or you will loose your mind. So save yourself the heartache and stick it in the freezer. Of course it may be time for me to get wooden molds and make bigger batches. I have been doing this long enough to have several popular soaps that I am making more often. Small batches are great for testing new soaps.
Well, here are the pictures. Let's get started!
