A big hurray for Manolo Brides! They courageously tried our Bridal Soap Favor Kit … and the soaps came out beautiful! Despite having no microwave, they persevered and melted their soap in the oven (channeling the Pioneer ingenuity of old).
They blogged about the entire experience here, along with photos. Check out their very successful final soaps – they look great!
Note to other soap makers: They provide you with A LOT of fragrance–don’t use it all unless you’re olfactory challenged. Seriously.
THE VERDICT: I’ve never poured soap before, but it was definitely easy. All told, I probably spent about two hours on the whole project. At $31.55 (plus the cost of a little organza for wrapping) for forty favors, the price is right. You could, however, buy the bits individually to customize your soap. There’s hemp soap and goatsmilk soap and all manner of nice adds. In conclusion, I could see this being a fun weekend DIY fest for a bride and her ‘maids.
I give it a solid thumbs up.
