Doesn't work with cold process

First of all I feel so cheated because of the lack of information regarding the mold itself. When it arrived I was a little surprised it was made out of a very cheap plastic. I made two batches of CP soap then after it hardened I used the mold and like I do with my others I set it in the freezer for about 30 minutes and as my others just popped out these didn't budge... at all. I waited about 2-3 hours and still nothing. So I searched for tips online because the website gave me no information at all. So I did the very last tip and used a heat gun and ohhh boy did I have some nice globs of soap. I don't recommend to anyone doing a CP, but I suppose if your using a soap base you'll be fine. Not worth the money.

Hi Maya! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this mold. While these hard plastic molds can be used for cold process soap, they do require a few steps to help them release easily. First of all, because of the restricted airflow, the soap can take a lot longer to harden. Sodium Lactate, which hardens soap, can help move that process along. For more tips check out our Unmolding Cold Process Soap from Plastic Molds blog post.

Soap won't come out.

My whole batch of soap is ruined because I can't get it out of the mold. Very disappointing.

Hi Shannon! I'm glad you think our Vintage Flower Seeds Mold is so cute! We do too! Though, I’m sorry to hear you had a hard time removing your soap from the mold. One trick you can try is placing your soap in the freezer for about 30 minutes if it's melt & pour. This will result in the soap constricting slightly and make for an easier removal. If your soap is cold process it may need to be in the freezer for a longer amount of time. Also, if you're using this mold for CP it is important to make sure your recipe is a harder one. Find out more about how to formulate a harder recipe in our Formulating Cold Process Recipes blog post. Sodium Lactate is another great way to make sure you have a hard bar of soap! I hope this helps!
