I've been talking about wanting to make soap but I haven't got all the supplies together for that yet. However, I want to play around with melt&pour glycerin soap into some molds I bought, just kiddie stuff.
Why buy in bulk online when you can buy it cheaper at a retail store? and why can you buy it cheaper at the local WalMart than by bulk online?
My question has to do with the purchase price of glycerin soap. The large package 8 bars of Dial Glycerin soap at WalMart is $4.00 including tax, didn't have to pay any shipping costs. The 8 bars equal 2lbs of gycerin soap for $4.00 which is $2 per pound. I go online to look at buying glycerin base/soap by the bulk and I can't find anything close to that $2 per pound. Remember to check the shipping costs online because soap is quite heavy.
This is not an advertisement for WalMart, just asking, "what am I missing?" I'm not interested in the components of the soap at the moment - it's not organic, it's got antibacterial stuff in it, etc - again, I'm just talking about melt&pour into a mold, childs play. Thx.
