Melt & Pour Soap:
Pour melted soap at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF into mold. Cool
until soap has hardened. Remove soap from mold. For easier unmolding,
place into freezer for 30 minutes, and then immerse bottom of the mold
in hot water for a few moments. Do not use cooking spray to coat mold.
Cold Process Soap: Coat the mold with cooking spray. Pour soap at
trace into mold. After 24 hours, flip mold over onto a clean surface.
Gently push the back of the mold until the soap begins to release then
pull the soap out of the mold with a gloved hand. Allow soap to cure for
4-8 weeks. Note that some CP soap recipes may require a week to harden
enough to remove from the mold. If this is the case with your recipe, we
recommend adding sodium lactate to your recipe to assist with creating a
harder bar faster.
Lotion Bars: Pour melted lotion bar mixture into mold cavities at
a temperature no hotter than 135ºF. Allow mixture to solidify. Flip
mold over onto clean surface. Gently push back of mold until lotion bar
begins to release then pull bar out of mold.
Wash in warm, sudsy water. Please avoid the dishwasher because that can warp your molds or make them brittle.
