Injector Soap Tool (12 cc capacity syringe): As seen on Soap Queen TV- this tool is a necessity for the tiny details in your melt and pour soap projects.
Tips: Trim the tip of the injector using scissors. We like to remove about 1/4” but you can cut more or less depending on your preference. Keep a cup of hot boiling water nearby while using your injector. Clean out the injector in between uses to ensure the soap doesn’t solidify in the tool.
For more tips on using the soap injector see our video on Soap Queen TV ‘Gingerbread Man Soap’
I bought this tool to use for the gingerbread man soap. It worked well at first and I had my boiling water beside me. Although, the injector started melting after awhile. I had to cut it , but after that, it was sloppy looking and the soap eventually hardened even with my regular rinsing. I had to use my pipette, but the pipette was more reliable. I recommend using a pipette, because its cheaper and if you mess up, you won't be wasting that much money.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Jane! I'm so sorry that happened to your injector. While we do suggest having a bowl of hot, soapy water near to keep the Injector Soap Tool from clogging, we would not recommend having that water so hot it is boiling. This tool is made from plastic so it can melt at high heats! See an example of this tool being used and cleaned in the Eggcellent Easter Melt & Pour tutorial.
I've been using these for many projects in the past. I did purchase these else where a few years ago. The trick of using these is to take a small amount of oil and apply to the black rubber part when they stick. They will then work just fine and last a long time. In fact I clean and take them apart and set the black part to soak in some oil until I'm ready to use again.
I bought two of these and couldn't get them to work. I kept my melt-and-pour hot and worked near a boiling pot of water so my soap base wouldn't harden in the syringe. However, i had a hard time pushing the plunger down to get more soap out of the tool.. There was an air pocket and the soap wouldn't go down, no matter how many times I dunked it in the pot of boiling water. :(
I also love this tool. I have tried droppers, ordinary syringes and these injector syringes. By far, these "injector tools" sold by Brambleberry work the best. They work just like an ordinary syringe would. However, the fact that they have a long curved tip really helps you see what you are doing. When you use an ordinary syringe, you do not have the same visibility. I would agree that they are definitely "necessary" if you are going to do this kind of detail work. (Now, I don't truly "like" this kind of detail work and do it rarely, preferring many other soaping methods. Nevertheless, if you are going to do detail work, I think you really must have these particular tools.)
These are awesome for fine detail work in melt and pour soap. Works great. I had no issues at all using them.
