I bought one each of the white and clear pear shaped soaps. The first time I used these for M&P soap I was hesitant, but everything turned out fine. The soap came out relatively easily and it is a great shape and weight. I used them again the other day for more M&P soap. I separated the molds and the clear one had leaked. It was impossible to get out of the mold, and I ended up using a knife to remove it. The white one didn't leak but it was very, very hard to get out. Thankfully I didn't have to use a knife on that one. I hope next time this works better...

Hi Shaaron! To help the mold release the soap easier, I would recommend popping the soap in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Doing this causes the soap to slightly constrict, and makes it easier to remove from the mold. I hope this tip helps in the future!
This mold makes soap with a lovely, comfortably ergonomic shape in the hand. It is flatter than I had expected, but that simply makes it easier to stamp the soap with my custom logo.
With cold process soap, I had difficulty getting my soap to release the first couple of times. Now I add borax to my soap batter, leave the soap in the molds longer than usual, plus I only use the clear halves of the mold for cold process soaps. MP works just fine usingone white half and one clear half.
I was hesitant to buy these molds at first because I had never used this type of mold before, but I am so glad I did. The resulting soaps are professional, well-shaped, and esthetically pleasing. I highly recommend them.
