Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Carly! I'm so glad our Guest Mini Peppermint Candy Mold is the perfect size and shape for your lotion bars! Though, I'm sorry you're having problems keeping the design intact. It definitely can be hard to unmold lotion bars that have a design on them since they are a softer product than soap. I will email you to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Audrey! With melt and pour soap, this can take up to 24 hours to unmold. To get your soap out, pull on the sides of each cavity to break the air lock. Then, flip the mold over and press gently on the back with your thumbs or the heel of your hand. You can also pop the molds in the freezer for about 15 minutes. That should help them pop out.
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Carolyn! I'm sorry this mold wasn't your favorite. If you're making melt and pour soap, it can take up to 24 hours to unmold your soap. For cold process soap, it can take up to 1-2 weeks. To speed up this process, you can use more hard oils in your recipe, like coconut oil and palm oil. You can also add 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water. You can read more about sodium lactate in this Sunday Night Spotlight: Sodium Lactate blog post. I'll be emailing you personally to help out!
