The results are lovely, and make for a good, solid bar of soap. I had a very difficult time removing the soap without mangling it though. Good, sturdy mold.

Hi Samantha! If you're making melt and pour soap, it can take up to 24 hours to unmold your soap. After that time, your soap should slide out easily! For cold process soap, it can take up to 1-2 weeks. To speed up this process, you can use more hard oils in your recipe, like coconut oil and palm oil. You can also add 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water to help the soap unmold faster. You can read more about sodium lactate in this Sunday Night Spotlight: Sodium Lactate blog post. I'll be emailing you personally to help out!
