I have done a few batches of m&p and am now wondering about the packaging. Do I have to plastic wrap it? I was going to use the soap to add to some homemade Christmas baskets and thought I would wrap them in wrapping paper or simple cigar bands. Do I have plastic wrap the soap first?

You really should wrap them in plastic first or else they will dry out. Cold process soap needs to "breathe" which is why it usually just has cigar brands, but melt and pour does better with plastic wrap or shrink wrap. Even if you don't have a shrink gun and shrink wrap, after you wrap your soap in plastic wrap you can shoot it with a hair dryer for a few seconds and it will tighten up and look much nicer!

What do you do with tiny ice cube size fun shaped melt and pour soap? I was planning on putting them in little plastic bags used for baked cookies but I'm concerned about the soap disintegrating or sweating against the plastic bags. Should I add shredded paper across the bottom?

Thanks!
