Dimensions: 12-5/8" (Length) X 9-1/4" (Width) X 2-1/2" (Height)Liner Material: Silicone
We recommend hand washing all of your molds and pieces to make sure they last a lifetime.
Note: This mold liner is not stable on its own and must be used inside an 18 Bar Birchwoodmold to work properly. The 18 Bar Birchwood mold must be purchased separately. Due to the height of the liner we have found that to make the lid fit you need to flip it over to the flat side.*This liner will fit 18 Bar Birchwood Molds purchased from the beginning of 2013 until present. If your 18 Bar Birchwood Mold was purchased before 2013, this liner will not fit due to updates to the 18 Bar Birchwood Mold.
I was so excited to get this, but what has happened both times I have used it is that it is flat on the bottom (I had heard about buckling), but then rippled on top. Each of the bars is uneven. Very strange. Each time I waste 6 pounds of soap, and end up with stuff I can use, but not sell. I have not yet used the birchwood mold without the liner, because I normally love the silicone liners, so I am sure the birchwood part is fine, it is something that is making the silicone bubble, perhaps from the bottom, affecting the top, and then settling down again on the bottom. Very disappointed.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kristen! I'm sorry this liner has not been working the best for you. In our tests and recipes, the Silicone Liner for 18 Bar Mold fit well without any bubbling. Customer service has contacted you directly to resolve this issue. In the meantime, if you would like to use your 18 Bar Mold without the silicone liner check out our How to Line Any Mold blog post for a quick rundown on lining your mold with freezer paper instead!
Just turn the whole mold over and the liner will slide right out, you can not pull it out from the top, if you up end it, and flip it over the weight of the soap will pull the liner right out. thought this might help you, this truly is a wonderful product and it is VERY easy to get the liner out, now the soap sometimes can be challenging, and I have VERY strong hands. But like I said I hat to WAIT, so i unmold after 12 hours, that makes it a little hard to do.
Fits the 18-bar mold perfectly! Sturdy, lies nice and flat, and releases the soap well. Couldn't ask for a better liner for my mold!
I was so excited to get and use this mold liner, along with the birchwood mold & dividers (NOT a cheap investment). Clyde of Vibrant Soaps sang its praises, and made it look so easy to use, so I decided to treat myself. I allowed the soap to remain in the mold for 3 days to make sure it was ready for an easy removal......The liner would NOT BUDGE out of the mold! Eventually, I had to use pliers to pull it out, DAMAGING the liner in the process! Probably would have had better luck with freezer paper MINUS that liner. $19.99 shot. Will think twice before "investing" again.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kathleen! I'm so sorry you had troubles using this liner and removing it from the mold. If your liner is wet when put into the mold it can create some strong suction, releasing that suction is the key to releasing your soap. Also, if any soap gets between the mold and liner it will stick. I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
I noticed that a lot of people are having issues with "buckling" on the bottom of the mold. Firstly, I would like to state that this is a wonderful mold! I am a sculptor with a lot of experience in casting and mold making and I can tell you that it's definitely a great product. I actually, didn't even buy the wooden box (I made my own) and I have not had the problem of the silicone buckling. However, if you force the silicone liner into a position that it doesn't want to be in-- like all silicone (because it's soft)-- it will buckle. Just double check to make sure you're doing it right (if it's not laying flat before you pour your soap in, then your soap won't be flat on the bottom). I absolutely LOVE my silicone liner. It was actually cheaper to buy this ready-made than if I made it (no time or money wasted!). Side note: when my liner arrived it was slightly misshaped from shipment (totally normal)... I just weighted it down with some bricks and let it sit for 2 days & it was perfect.
