Making Soap Look Good

by Ron

After soap is made and cured how do you go about making it presentable enough to sell? In other words taking all the rough edges off and making the surfaces of the soap some what smooth? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


There are a few methods you can use to smooth the edges of handmade soap bars.

A knife used at a 45 degree angle to the edges of the soap is the cheapest tool there is. This does take a little practice but it doesn't take long to master...this is also the method that I use.

A vegetable peeler run along the edges in the same manner as a knife.

A cheese slicer used the same way as the two tools above.

A soap beveller is the most expensive tool but it is probably the fastest and easiest to use. Just Google the words "soap beveller" on the picture search and a ton of options appear.

Lastly, you can use white cotton gloves that can be found at the pharmacy to buff the soap bars. Simply put the gloves on and rub the bars. This gives them a nice cleaned up look and takes away all the bits.
