Usage & Recommendations
Tips for using our mold:
Directions for use: For easier release, pour within 1/4 inch of mold edge. Allow soap to set-up completely before trying to release from mold. Using fingertips, gently pull the sides of mold away from the soap until you see air pockets forming. Flip mold over and firmly, but gently push down on the mold until the soap drops out of mold.
Pouring temperatures should not exceed 145 degrees F. Pouring above these temperatures may warp or damage the mold.
Mold tips for cold process soap:
- Do not use oil in the molds, it will make the CP stick more because the traced soap wants to grab onto the oils.
- When you get a new mold, wash it in warm soapy water, rinse and dry with a soft towel and buff it.
- Use borax in the water before you add the lye. Add 2 tsp of Borax for every 6 oz of water, stir until it's dissolved and then add your lye to it. This will firm up the CP and make releasing it a breeze.
- If the top part of the CP is hard and the bottom is mushy, it might not have had a full trace.
- If the CP sticks in the mold, do not force it out but instead put the whole mold into the freezer for 30 minutes, take it out and let the plastic mold come to room temperature (about 2 minutes). Put a towel on the counter and turn the mold over on the towel, now put your fingers under the mold and gently pull the sides of the mold to allow air in and then with your thumbs on top of the mold, press as you go around the mold. You should see the air releasing it from the mold.
