Like the other reviewer, I had issues with unmolding (not even the freezer trick worked.) After a few months I decided to give it another try. Well, my soap ended up seriously discoloring, and in addition, when I went to unmold the next day it was clear they weren't going to budge. I threw the whole mess in a cabinet and decided to deal with it later. It was several weeks before I went back to try and get the soaps out. Lo and behold, they popped right out! They just needed a good sit in the mold. And actually, the discoloration ended up looking cool in a vintage photograph sort of way😉 I went ahead and stamped them with my business stamp and think I will sell them after all!
I have to say first that when I can unmold them, I love the way soap looks and feels with this mold. Disappointingly, I cant use it though because I just cannot easily un-mold the soap. I have been making soaps for 4+ years and have used LOTS of molds! I have never encountered a more difficult mold. I've tried every trick in the book I know and I just give up. This mold was the perfect shape for my last batch, so decided to give it a go again. No luck, I've now told hubby that if he can break them out of the mold, the soaps are his!

Hi Trish! I'm sorry that this mold has been giving you some trouble! It can be a little tricky to remove cold process soap from heavy duty molds because they are so sturdy. I would recommend placing your soap in the freezer for about 10 minutes up to 24 hours to freeze solid, this can make it easier to remove! Gently tapping the back of the mold to release the airlock can also help release them :). You may enjoy the
