Each bar is well over 6 oz even after the trim. I used extra scent when made the soap smell great but increased the occurance of ash.....thick layer of it on the soap. I was going to leave it as ash is purely cosmetic...however, that didn't stop me from being curious as to what the soap was hiding as I knew what the swirl was supposed to look like without the ash....well...it looks amazing! What's more...I only trimed off the overpour ...the swirl is clearly seen, the soap is even in size, and the bars are still over regulation size. The trimmed ash will become samples.
