hotel size bars in? I have been searching and I haven't found one. Robin how do you do yours if you don't mind telling? TIA

I just got a "slab" mold from http://www.the-sage.com (when I was ordering the Dan's bands LOL) it was a rip off because it's plastic but it does 24 3x2 soaps with cut marks. Could not be used for CPOP, would melt. There was no picture on the site.

There is a mold & cutter system specifically for guest sizes - http://www.forcraftssake.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=6&zenid=e70b464d5e5d2350c7384b0ee4b23d7c

it's pretty popular.

What I did for those sample sizes was just cut my bar in sixths. My bar is 1" wide - I cut that into thirds. Then I cut each piece in 1/2, giving me little 3.5 x 1 x .3 inch bars. Long and skinny. You can cut your bar other ways - cut it in half down the width, then into thirds, for 1.75 x 2.5 x .3 inch bars.

Wouldn't want to do a ton of them that way, but it wasn't bad.

I use the milky way guest soap molds for my guest soaps, but then I only do melt and pour soaps. I can't seem to get over the fear of my kids trying to get into the lye for doing cold-process. We outgrew our house one child ago, so I also have no room to cure soaps.

Good Luck,

Kim

I bought some thick plastic covered clear butter dishes that are a true squared off rectangle from Linens n' Things. They were 1.99 each.

If you molded your soap in one of those upside down, you could cut it into cute little 1 inch slices and it would a perfect size for a guest soap.

I have not put anything in these things yet, so I cannot comment on the way they hold up with CP as of yet.

I'll be interested in hearing how that works Eugenia. I cut mine by hand, usually in quarters.

Sara, the cut lines made it very easy to work with but it's just not heavy enough. It's 12 x 12, so it's a good size. If it was silicone like the new baking pans it would be FANTASTIC. I did email them about the cracks.
