Heavy Duty Column Mold with Reusable Liner - These innovative molds make a perfectly round loaf of soap.  Each mold includes a removable liner and end cap.  The new wavy texture allows the liner and end cap to be easily removed. But don't worry, the removable liner keeps the soap perfectly smooth and round.  The flexible plastic liner is thick and sturdy for easy removal of cold process or melt and pour soap.

Size: 12"(L) X 2-3/4"(Diameter/Width)
Cavities: 1
Capacity: 49 oz
Includes: 1 liner, 1 end cap, 1 column mold

We recommend hand washing all of your molds and pieces to make sure they last a lifetime

To purchase extra liners click here

Note: Twist off the main part of the mold, away from the end cap, instead of just screwing off the end cap. The soap should stay in the liner and end cap while the mold slips easily off.

To avoid tearing the soap, just pull up one of the corners of the liners to see if the soap is ready to come out. If it tears at all, allow the soap to sit for another day or two.  If you are using a softer recipe, use of Sodium Lactate will help with unmolding.

Tip: When placing your liner in the mold for the first time the edges shouldn't overlap. If they do try flipping it around. There should be at least one inch sticking out from the mold.

These molds are easy to bump and knock over when you are using them. But we have a solution – Column Molds Stands. We also have kits of molds and stands that when purchased all at once save you money. Check out the 4 Column Mold kit; it’s like getting a mold for free!

Great Mold with a Little Preparation
This really is a great mold for the price. The secret to getting it to work is to use a recipe that isn't "sticky" 24 hours after the soap is poured in the mold. Discount the water if you have to. With the right recipe, the liner will peel right off. Also, line the bottom with saran wrap and use a rubber band to hold it in place. If you slip the end cap on over the rubber band, the end cap will seal nicely. However, when you are ready to move your mold full of soap, just to be safe, keep one hand on the end cap to prevent the end cap from coming off.

Cap wont stay on!
Made one loaf, no issues... I was thrilled. Went to make my 2nd loaf... and all HELL broke lose. 47oz of 100F liquid, covered me, and my kitchen. The bottom fell off. I tapped, twisted made sure that lid was on tight, I couldnt get it off. But the second the liquid was in, it fell apart. Once the disaster was cleaned, I tried the mold with water. again... it fell apart. the bottom will NOT stay on (tried on both sides, thinking... maybe). Sadly, I now have 2 of these and terrified to even try again. that was one hell of an expensive mold. 2oz of scent, the oils... all down my sink and washing machine.

Not circular
I have used this mold twice and find that it doesn't make round soaps for me. Both times my soaps have 1. a pointy side not round 2. a flat side. Why won't these soaps come out round and smooth? I want to like it and use it. Thank you.

Hi Pam! I'm sorry to hear you are having some trouble with this mold. We have always easily achieved round shapes with this mold, as seen in the Circle Swirled Cold Process Tutorial and the Circular Soapy Geometry Tutorial. I will be contacting you personally to help you troubleshoot why you are unable to achieve a round shape.

Excellent mold
Well, that was impressive! This mold was on sale, and so I decided to give it a shot despite the mixed reviews. I had no problems setting it up or soap not staying in the mold- it was tight and sealed. I wasn't thinking and did fill it up to the tippy top, but as it turned out that didn't matter. The next day I was wondering how to get the soap out without mauling it. I went ahead and pulled off the bottom cap and the whole thing slid right out! It was a perfectly round log! I should add that I generally add a tiny bit of beeswax to my soap, so I'm sure that helped set up the soap well. This mold really was great to use. I've tried the PVC pipe before, and the results weren't nearly so satisfactory. I would definitely recommend this mold. Anna Marie

A frustrating mold
I am writing this review because at this very moment I am looking at my filled mold wondering how the heck to get my soap out. One end cap slid right off. The other won't budge. Probably because of the soap that leaked out when the cap tried to come off. Ok, just went outside and used a hammer to break the end cap enough to get it off. I decided I might as well since I am never using it again anyway. The other thing about this mold is that it takes forever for the soap to set up enough to get it out without tearing holes in the sides of the soap. And yes, I used SL in this batch. Can't even imagine what a mess it would be if I hadn't. But I see that others have had a joyful soaping experience with this mold so I guess it's just me. I also see that since I purchased this thing a year ago that BB has since introduced a silicone column mold that looks much easier to use. I wish I had that one.

Hi Laura, I'm sorry to hear this mold gave you such trouble! When you lined the mold, you should have a small amount of liner that sticks out from the hard shell mold. What you can do is twist the main part of the mold away from the end cap, and the soap will remain in the liner with the end cap attached. I will be emailing you personally to help resolve this issue :)
