This mold is simply incredible. The details are elegant, It's easy to pop out my melt and pour and dusting mica on a bar from this mold makes the most beautiful bar of soap. I'm in love with Bramble Berry products. This mold will be used for every gift-giving opportunity until the end of time, I'm sure of it.
This mold makes a very pretty bar of soap but getting it out of the mold in one piece is extremely difficult. I poured 8 bars and was only able to salvage 6 (having to do some work on the 6 to make them able to be sold). Any suggestions on how to get the bars out whole? I used the molds for cold process soap and let them sit for 3 days before trying to unmold. I even tried putting the molds in the freezer. Help?

Hi Cindy! I'm sorry this mold wasn't your favorite. With this mold, cold process soap may take up to 1-2 weeks to release. To help it release faster, you can add 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water. You can also use a higher percentage of hard oils in your recipe, like coconut oil and palm oil. I'll be emailing you personally to help out!
This mold makes an eye-catching bar of soap with crisp details. The only problem was that my mold cracked next to one of the cavities because I had to push hard to get the soap out of the mold. It's possible that I didn't wait long enough, and should have let the soaps cure a little longer (I was too excited!). This is still an excellent product and I definitely recommend it. I would just be very careful when popping them out, because too much flexing will make it crack.
