I wanted to love them

I knew going into this that they were redesigned and I read the reviews and I knew that it altered the shape of the soap. I knew it, but I'm SO tired of lining with freezer paper and needed the ease of silicone. I took a chance and thought it had to be better than lining myself. It is! It's much easier, zero effort - but it REALLY alters the final bar. They went from a rectangle that fits well in your hand to nearly a perfect square. I had to reduce my recipe (because it wouldn't all fit, it is THAT thick) and I had to redesign my labels and packaging. I cut my soap for weight, 5oz bars each and while the end result is the same weight at 5oz, it APPEARS to be a smaller bar to the consumer. My customers noticed and asked if I reduced my size and not my price. Ouch. I have to go back to the freezer paper. My customers (and myself, honestly) prefer the rectangle shape, it fits nicer in your hand. Silicone is the way to go, but I can't use these at this thickness. If you're not established with a customer base, these may work for you, but beware that it's a noticeable change in your end product if you're not new.

Hi Missy! I'm glad you found the silicone so easy to use though I'm sorry this liner isn't going to work out for you. We love our new, sturdier Silicone Liner for the 5 lb Wood Mold! Though because of the thicker walls in the new design to prevent rippling it does change the shape of your soap with those new dimensions. For help making lining your molds easier check out our How to Line Any Mold blog post. Customer service has contacted you directly about a return :-)

Prefer the old ones

Bought 5 of these, they still cave a bit on the sides, not as much but still used a clip on one side, the sides on this mold are thicker but the bottom is thin like the old ones, is the reason why its still caving in , the soap dimensions is entirely different , i do prefer the old dimensions, so yea im stuck with 5 molds , and do not know if i will use them, most probably try to sell them

Hi Marion! I'm sorry the new design of these molds aren't your favorite. We love the sturdier design of our new Silicone Liner for 5 lb Wood Mold with its thicker walls, though they do change the dimensions. We are more than happy to take returns on the unwanted liners, check out our Return Policy. Customer service has contacted you directly to help with that return. :-)

Silicone liner for 5 pound wood mold

I have to say that I was so disappointed with this silicone mold. I just finished my first batch of melt and pour soap and the shape of the bars are terrible. The bottoms are lumpy and the sides of the mold caved in.

Hi Tina! I'm sorry you were disappointed in your results with this product. Our Silicone Liner for 5 lb Wood Mold is not meant to be used on its own, it's a liner for our wooden 5 Pound Mold With Sliding Bottom. If used on its own the liner would not be able to hold itself up very well and would definitely make some strangely shaped soap. Find an example of them being used together in our Horse Sculpted Layers Cold Process Soap.

Way to thick

I have several of the old style liners and love them but the new ones are awful. Yes they are more sturdy but the walls are so thick that i felt like i lost almost half a pound of weight to my finished loaf and the bars are drastically diferent shaped that i lose the uniformity that i look for in my finished soaps. As much as i hate lining molds with freezer paper i will go back to that befor using these.

Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Sara! I'm sorry you're not a fan of the new liners. We changed to the new Silicone Liners for 5 lb Wood Molds due to multiple concerns about the original liners being too flimsy. Because the walls are thicker to make them more stable, it does hold a slightly smaller amount of soap. Lining the mold with freezer paper will give your soap a similar size to the old liners.
