Let's face facts- even  the most beautiful molded soap loses its appeal once it gets used.  Worse, if you put the soggy soap back in the soap dish, it can gunk up the unused one too.  My solution: minature single-use soaps.  Use teeny tiny candy or soap molds (check under 'embedding' soap molds) to make tiny little colorful soaps.  Fill a soap bowl with the resulting soap confetti.   Guests can use them without guilt, and kids can be instructed to keep lathering until the duckie or doggie is all gone.

I used glycerin melt-and-pour soap plus soap coloring to make the soaps pictured here.  I found that  'embedding' soap, which has a higher melting point, lasts more than a single use, so you may want to avoid this type.

i love those... now i'm  thinking of sticking those tiny pieces onto a bigger piece of soap... or embedding them in some clear soap ~ do you think they'd melt?
The tiny molds are especially FOR the purpose of making soaps for embedding.  If you use embedding soap (higher melting temperature) they should be fine.  If you use regular melt-and-pour, I would pour in stages, and wait for the clear soap to be as cool as possible before you pour it.

I found the molds on Ebay.  There are at least 6 listings right now for turtle soap or chocolate molds in various sizes.
