Craft Soap moulds are manufactured using flexible, durable 40-mil plastic so it is slightly more duracle than the standard 30-mil plastic used for the Milky Way and Aloha moulds. and last for many pours.
They can be used for all types of soap-making (cold and hot process, rebatch and melt & pour). The moulds are suitable for use with not only soap, but also clay, plaster, chocolate and wax.
The moulds should be cleaned using warm tap water and soap (if they've been used for soapmaking, simply soak in warm water). Hot water, including dishwasher water may warp the plastic!
Pour Temperatures: The moulds can tolerate wax and soap temperatures of up to 62C.
Allow melt and pour soaps to set up for at least 3 hours before releasing from the mould and cold process soaps should remain in the mould for 24 hours. Avoid using any force when releasing soap. If you have difficulty removing your soap, place the mould in your freezer over night.
Adding 1-3% Sodium Lactate to CP soap batch will make your soap much easier to unmould. It akes soap much harder and will therefore contribute to extending the life of the soap once it hits the shower.
Greasing the mould with a little dimethicone (food grade silicon spray) helps wonders in mould release. Other oils used to grease the moulds with can actually make cp soap more likely to stick to the moulds because the traced soap wants to grab onto the oils.
