This afternoon I spent some time trying to melt my soap so that I could put it in these little containers. Just a little helpful hint from Aunt Krissy, don't burn soap in the microwave. It's very easy to do and smells bad! And it does not work. I grated the soap up thinking that that might help it melt. It didn't. I then grated it into a small pot and tried to melt in on the stove top. My soap wont melt! I ended up cutting a "plug" of soap that fit into the containers. I sold some soap to a drug store and I needed to give them samples that they could put out for customers to smell. I didn't want to have a bar of soap just sitting there. I think that this will work. I also labeled the bottom of the containers just in case there is a mix up on the lids. When I make soap I will put a little bit in the containers. That way I wont have to cut more plugs and I also wont have to deal with a messy soap sample when I do more craft fairs.
