Do not fit!!

I ordered these shrink wrap bands, which are more expensive than other places, specifically because the listing states it will fit the bars made in the 9-bar birch mold. I thought I would spend the extra money on something I knew would fit. I guess it would work if you made a 1lb batch of soap, but that would be such a wimpy bar it's not worth wasting my supplies. I'm very disappointed because I love brambleberry and all of the other supplies I've received, but I wish they would update the listing to a max bar size (not just the size of the flat shrink wrap band) that would fit in this. I did not even make the "max" size batch that I could fit in this mold. Now I am out $12 which is a lot to me because I am just starting out and don't have extra money to be buying things I cant use. The quality of the plastic is nice. It's thick enough that it didn't rip while I was pulling and trying to stretch them over my bar so that is good.

Hi Jacob! I'm sorry these did not work out for your soap. We found that if we didn't use the dividers in the 9 Bar Birchwood Mold and poured a little less so the bars we a bit shorter, we had an easier time slipping these Medium Shrink Wrap Soap Bands on. If you're not wanting to make any changes to your soap you may find the Shrink Wrap Soap Bands - Large are a better fit. Customer service has contacted you directly regarding a return :-)

Won't fit 18-bar mold soap; hard to get on

Despite the product description saying it will fit soap from the 18-bar mold, it will NOT fit, not even close. Even putting a smaller bar in a larger wrap was difficult to do. This is the first Bramble Berry product that I have not liked, and I cannot recommend it.

Good for 1 inch bars

I noticed that the larger the bar I tried wrapping, the harder it was to get the wrappers to work. It took several attempts for me to get the hang of using these bar wraps but once I got it, it seemed to get easier for me. Smaller bars seem to work much better. Nothing larger than one inch. Sometimes the edge scratches or nicks the soap as you try to slide the soap into the wrapper before applying heat to it. Sometimes the perforated side comes open on it's own while you’re heating it. I've had to unwrap and rewrap a few bars, but overall these do work better than shrink wrap from the grocery store. I experimented with one bar of MP soap and that worked okay too but I took my time with the heat gun, not wanting to melt the soap. It also helps to keep the heat gun far enough away that it doesn’t melt holes in the plastic. I recommend about 6 to 8 inches.

Too Small!

I ordered these to package my soaps for sale and the bands are too small to fit around my soap.

Worked great!

I used my hair dryer and it worked great! I found that if I put the dryer on high very close to the soap it worked the best! No bubbling! I'm very pleased!
