Hello,
I am making melt and pour for the first time. I am making little candy mold size melt and pour and sticking them onto my regular HP soap. Here is my problem. The melt and pour is "sweating". I thought maybe it was just the moisture coming off the drying HP but even the ones that I have not used yet are doing it. We are not talking about a little bead or two, these things are so covered that I can't even make out the image on the soap. Some have been done for over a week and still doing it. One soap forum suggested I sell them in plastic bags with a moisture packet inside. This does not seem like a great option to me since most people like to use their soap or have it on display, neither of those is really something you do with soap that has to be kept in a shrine.
Please advise!!!
Thank you, have a great day

That's normal for M&P soap. Unless they are tightly wrapped, they will attract moisture from the air. There are low sweat bases that you can buy that will minimize the sweating, but if it's very humid where you are, they will still sweat.

well that is just crazy! I have never seen any do that before. I haven't made them myself, but I see then places. That just wasted 100 bars of soap :( There is nothing I can do to get it to dry out?? I wonder why they use things that would cause that. I feel like melt and pour is typically used for "cute soaps, not really soap that would be sitting in a shower.

You could try keeping a fan on them, or using a dehumidifier, but other than that, they're gonna sweat if it's humid. :cry:

Since you already made them, there isn't much that you can do now. Next time I would try the low sweat MP base.
