    What size shrink bag or tube do you use for soap?
    Do you prefer the bags or the tube?
    Where do you get them?

    I'm trying to make a decision to get some for my soap.. there are so many kinds out there.. what's a girl to do?

    I use the 4X6" bags that I purchase in bulk from Uline. They fit my MM bars perfectly.

    Thanks!
    One more question... do they cover the whole bar? or just 'around' the bar?

    I don't shrinkwrap mine. They go into gussetted cello bags along with a card label. And my daughters do most of the soap wrapping. :)

    Mine cover the entire bar except for one end that is open for sniffing...

    My bars are 1 inch thick, 2.5 by 3.5 and I use the Dan's bands from www.the-sage.com. they have open ends and a perforation for easy removal. Those just barely fit my bars. They also have smaller soap wraps too.

    I use the 4x6 bags from ulines as well. They are completely closed. I have had no problems doing it this way for the last year. Shannon
