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

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!

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 :)

Bottom fell out
The second time using this mold I filled it with 48 ounces of swirled soap. I picked up the column mold and right away the bottom fell off and I had raw soap all over my counter. I like this mold, and I like how my soap comes out, but for the price, I expect the bottom to stay on, at least until I can get my hand under to hold it.

Hi Elizabeth! I'm so sorry to hear this happened to you! We have found the caps on this mold to be extremely tight. I will be emailing you personally to help resolve this issue.

Great for the price but soap is not perfectly smooth
I think this mold is definitely worth the $10 investment as it is very sturdy and much easier to use than the Pringles can I was using before. However, my inner liner does overlap, creating a raised edge on my soap. I've tried turning the liner every which way in order to make the ends meet perfectly but to no avail. After I unmold the soap I use a vegetable peeler to scrape off the raised edge. A little inconvenient but it definitely doesn't stop me from using it!

Hi Tiffany! I’m so happy to hear you have been enjoying this mold. If you are finding the edges are overlapping, try flipping it around as there should be at least one inch sticking out from the mold. I hope this helps!

Great mold, hard to remove
The mold is great, and easy to use over and over again. the results are excellent. The liner is hard to remove as there aren't any places to really get a good grip. With arthritis I just can't grip it enough and had to use pliers. To fix this I'm drilling a few small holes at the top of the liner and attaching some cording to make a pull loop. Easy fix, but possibly something that can be changed on the product before sale.

Peels right off
I wipe a bit of mineral oil on the liner of this mold, and then as soon as the next day I can slip the soap in the liner from the mold and then lay it down and it slowly peels itself off and around the round loaf of soap. I really like this mold.
