Guest size soaps are great for different situations including travel, guest bathrooms, hotels/bed and breakfasts and are great for allowing your customers to purchase mini sizes of different soaps to try. There are many ways to create guest size soaps; here is what I like to do.

Creating Handcrafted Guest Size Soaps

  1. I create my soaps in either 8″ or 10″ silicone loaf molds.
  2. I have a multi-wire cutter that I use to cut them into 1″ bars.
  3. I then use the cutter to cut each bar of soap into three slices. Below, the soap is cut into three slices.


Then I cut the stack of 3 slices into halves; creating 6 guest size soaps out of 1 bar of soap.

I just LOVE these tiny bars of soap! They are adorable!


Below, are three bars of soap cut into 6 guest size soaps each. Each weighs about 18 grams.


You can even create labels for them! If you need help designing labels, we can help!

To give you an idea of the size, here is a bar in my hand.


You can sell them in sets to your customers or maybe even offer them wholesale to local boutique hotels and bed & breakfasts.

When pricing them, be sure to keep in mind the extra packaging (if you package) and labor involved (cutting).

Did you see this travel soap set we used to sell at Prairie Soap Company?
