Description 

Silicone Column Mold: This innovative 2-piece silicone loaf mold makes round soap that is amazingly easy to unmold.  The mold design makes use of extra thick silicone to keep the sides from bowing out and distorting the round shape. The interlocking seal is simple to use, no clamps or bands are needed. And of course, since it is made of silicone, this mold is extremely easy to release your soap and wash. As with most silicone molds, your cp soap may need an extra day or two in this mold to fully harden since the flexible silicone sides do not allow air inside the mold, which results in slower evaporation of water and hardening of your soap. Works well with melt & pour soap, too!

Tip: If making Cold Process soap in this (or any) silicone mold we recommend adding Sodium Lactate to your recipe. This will help to harden up your soap so that there won't be any dents or finger marks from unmolding the soap.

Please Note: To avoid any leaking make sure the interlocking seal is fully pressed together around the entire edge of the mold. For an extra secure seal use bulldog clips on each side to keep the mold secure even while being jiggled and moved.

Care of your mold: We recommend hand washing your mold.

Silicone Column Mold
Recently purchased and used this for a CP soap. It worked pretty well, but did take a few extras days more of waiting before unmolding, because the soap was still on the soft side. For the most part, I am happy with the mold, and would purchase again.

Love this Mold
This mold is great for making circular shaped soap. It is very easy to use and I haven't had any trouble with unmolding. I did use Sodium Lactate in my batches as recommended. I was using Pringle cans before I bought this mold. This is so much better!

The mold is terrific.
This worked really well and I will order another. My soap turned out just great - no problems holding together or keeping the side sealed. Great soap mold product!

Wonderful Mold
This is so much easier than using PVC pipes! Used for the first time and had no real problems. Poured soap at med trace. I do not recommend tapping to much as this will cause the mold to come apart. Otherwise it was fine. Soap was ready to unmold less than 24 hrs. later. Unmolding was super easy and soap is nice and firm.

Requires help staying together
I've made a few batches of soap in this mold and learned a couple tricks. The first batch was a disaster. I ended up with some acceleration and poured at a thicker trace. I tried to tamp down the soap to release bubbles and the mold started coming apart, oozing raw soap all over the counter. The next time I used this I clipped the sides and bottom together with large binder clips (2 on each side and the bottom) and propped it in a towel lined bucket for stability and so it hopefully would gel. I also poured at a thinner trace. Even though this was insulated it didn't come to a full gel, heat escaped out of the top. This doesn't really bother me, but if you want a complete gel I would insulate this pretty well and maybe cover the top with more than a towel. Now that I know to clip this mold and prop it up it works just fine, but I won't ever use it au natural again. I'm grading it as average because without modifying it, it wouldn't be functional.

Thanks for the feedback Molly! As long as the interlocking seal is fully locked, this mold even holds water - or at least the five I picked at random from the warehouse did! =) Be sure to keep your eyes on the Soap Queen blog for more tips, tricks and tutorials using this mold.
