I do not like leaving negative reviews for anything, but I am so disappointed with this mold. I used it today for the first time, with melt and pour, and found it nearly impossible to get the soap out. I was firm, but not aggressive with it and it zig zag cracked across the middle! I wish I had looked at the review before attempting to unmold since it is known to be hard to release. The flip flops make adorable soap, but now I don't even think I can make any more with the way it cracked. Soap molds should never be this hard!
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Sarah! I'm sorry to hear you had a hard time removing your soap from this mold. We love the cute soaps that can be made with the Guest Mini Flip Flop Mold, though those hard plastic molds can be a little trickier to unmold from. One trick is to place your soap in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This will result in the soap constricting slightly, making for an easier removal. Then, gently pull on the sides of the mold to break the airlock. Flip the mold over and gently press on the back with your thumbs to release the soap. If it still doesn't want to come out, let it sit another hour or two. You can see that process in this Gingerbread Man Melt and Pour Tutorial.
This mold is adorable, but I've had a hard time releasing the soap from this mold. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks, Donna

Hi Donna! I'm glad you are enjoying this mold. Sometimes the firm molds can be a little tricky to release your soap, but I have a few tips! For these type of molds, soaps with a lot of hard oils (coconut, palm, PKO, tallow, cocoa butter etc) work well to remove the soap. Otherwise, sometimes you have to wait up to a week or two. I would recommend placing your soap in the freezer for about 10 minutes all the way up to 24 hours to freeze solid, this can make it easier to remove! Gently tapping the back of the mold to release the airlock can also help release them :).
