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.
Cavity Dimensions: 9-3/4" (length) X 2-3/4" (diameter)

Hi Stacey! I'm sorry this mold wasn't your favorite. We've found it works well for soap, as seen in this Oatmeal Milk and Honey Cold Process Soap. Because the seam runs along the bottom of the mold, we don't recommend tapping it. To help reduce air bubbles, you can pour your soap slowly down the side. I'll be emailing personally to resolve this issue!

Hi Stacey! I'm sorry that this product wasn't your favorite. We've found that this mold holds soap securely. However, you may want to put clips on the sides of the mold for some extra protection. I will be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!
