    Indeed. With the right mold, color and packaging, these hand made soaps can serve as gifts as well as giveaways during birthdays, baptisms and shop launches. With personalized acetate boxes, they’re good to go!

  2. I just realized that this is an excellent gift idea for schools, baptism and weddings. But, I still make a point of informing my kids that home-made fruit-soaps are not sweet candies lest they accidentally ingest them.

  3. My kids often confuse those beautiful shapes as well as striking colors for decorated chocolates. But, I keep reminding them that they are not candies.

  4. In order to emphasize my point, I always make a point of opening up the container and teaching my kids of correct hand washing skills.

    Where did you get these soap molds from? I have been looking around but could not find them in my locality. I think I should take out some time to browse more shops.
