Soap curing rack

When the undergrads moved off campus a couple weeks ago, I did a little scavenging. I found some large plastic storage containers that now hold most of my container supplies for packaging product. I also found a bunch of those 1ft x 1ft metal cube rack pieces. I decided that they would be great to use for shelves in a soap curing rack. We had some extra wood just sitting in the basement so I asked Dylan for help cutting the wood and I was lucky enough that he decided to do the whole project for me! He put some caster wheels we had in a toolbox on the bottom of the rack so I can move it around. I really love it...I am wishing that I had another! There are plenty of shelves left so I would just have to get some more wood. So maybe in the future I will have more..Dylan are you reading this? Haha

Anyways, I thought I would post a picture since I always love looking at others soapers spaces, I thought you all might enjoy.


  1. That is wonderful! I was just thinking to myself, "where am I going to cure all the soap I make??" I am running out of flat space. I need a rack. Good for Dylan for being so supportive. Good for YOU, too!!

  2. Oooohhh, I'm kinda jealous = ) I need to come up with a good drying rack too. I've been meaning to post on freecycle for screens, but those are perfect too! Thanks for the picture!

  3. What a great find!
    Thanks so much for sharing the picture of your soaping space with us!
    I need desperately need a space for just my soap!
    I have soap curing everywhere!

  4. It's great! Thanks for the idea. I also need something similar. I currently have every single one of my cookie racks on a 5 shelf unit thing... Adam asked me last night if we had a rack he could cool his muffins on and I had to say no! And thanks for the Freecycle hint, Heidi! (I'm a moderator for our group, you would think I would have thought to ask for screens by now!) :)
