Tips & Tricks:
- Push the soap loaf all the way to the left so that each bar is evenly cut. Depending on the size of your loaf the end piece might be a little smaller or larger than the others.
- If the soap has any fun stuff like lavender buds or salt on top of your soap loaf, you'll want to cut the soap with the "toppings" face down. Otherwise, the wires will pull and drag the toppings through the cuts and cause drag lines.
- It is important to cut partially cured soap. Soft soap won't cut cleanly and your loaf may become disfigured. However, really hard soap is very difficult to cut through and can result in a broken wire (or two).
- Once soap has been cut, leave cutter in "down" position to remove soap before lifting the handle back up.
- Clean the individual wires after every loaf cut. Leftover bits may cause noticeable drag lines on the next loaf.
- Have fun!
