Will they leak? These acrylic soap molds have been tested to hold a thinly traced soap without leakage. So no worries! The HDPE bottom fits snugly into the grooves creating a tight seal.
Please note that the soap will not lay on top of the HDPE bottom piece. It is merely there to form a seal as HDPE has a pliability to it that will fit more tightly into its groove than other plastics. A thin acrylic insert is included with your mold that will rest on top of the HDPE. Although this mold will hold a thinly traced soap and is perfect for individuals who make soap from scratch, it is not recommended for very thin melt and pour soap bases as some leaking may occur because melt and pour soap is so incredibly thin.
How do you get the soap out? There are two options for removing your soap from the Soap Making Resource acrylic mold. One option is to completely disassemble your mold (also great for clean up) allowing the log of soap to be removed. The other option is to use the two release holes incorporated into the bottom of the unit and accompanying soap pushers to slide your soap up and out of the mold without having to go through the disassembly process. Please see the pictures below demonstrating the two un-molding options:
Sliding your soap out of the mold using the built in holes and accompanying soap pushers is personally my preferred technique for un-molding.
How does it work? Each mold comes with an acrylic insert that is placed inside the unit. The soap is poured onto this thin piece of acrylic which securely lies on top of the HDPE bottom. After about 24 hours, or once the soap is fully solidified you will place the soap pushers into the bottom holes and apply pressure to slide the soap out of the mold.
Tip: A quick 5 - 10 minute trip to the oven at 170 degrees Fahrenheit, just before you un-mold your soap, will warm your batch just enough so that the solid log will slip right out of the mold with almost no pressure at all. Very easy and convenient! Alternately, you can put the entire batch of soap in your freezer and as it thaws your soap will release without a problem. Even your stickiest soap recipes will come out of this mold... so no worries!
It's easy as that and your soap will emerge without a flaw!
Finally, once the log of soap is completely pushed out of the mold, simply remove the thin acrylic sheet from the bottom of the soap and cut your log into bars.
No unbolting and no complications! Our thought was that simple is best!
Note: Keep in mind that the soap pushers are pushing on the plastic insert piece and not on the soap itself, avoiding any and all damage to your product.
With the integrated release holes and soap pushers, both original Soap Making Resource mold features, you will save time as you won't have to disassemble the mold and you will also have 100% perfect sides as you won't pull away any of the soap during disassembly which could damage your finished product.
This option to push out your soap without disassembling your mold is also perfect for those sticky batches that may make pulling the acrylic away from your soap a bit more difficult.
The second option for un-molding your soap is to disassemble the mold completely allowing the log to be removed. This can be done easily with many batches, once heat or cold is added, but some stickier soap recipes may present problems as it could be difficult to pull the plastic away from the soap without damaging the sides.
Note: As mentioned above, our acrylic soap molds give you an alternative un-molding option via the release holes and soap pushers that will make removing even the stickiest soaps without any damage a complete breeze. This is one reason why I so strongly feel that the Soap Making Resource no-line acrylic soap mold is such a wonderful investment and unique product.
The assembly and disassembly feature not only will allow you a way to remove your soap if you decide to not use the soap pushers, but it also makes it very easy to clean your mold once your batch is finished. Simply take apart the mold, put the pieces in a sink filled with warm water, and after a few hours, wipe all parts clean. Easy as pie!
There are two sizes available for the Soap Making Resource acrylic soap molds. The small size will make 2 pounds of soap producing seven bars if you cut them one inch thick, and the large size will make 5 pounds of soap producing sixteen one inch thick bars. Of course, you can cut your soaps into any thickness that you desire.
Making bigger batches? There are discounts for purchasing more than one mold to accommodate a larger batch size. If you're making a 10 pound batch of soap, you can get two of the 5 pound molds. If you're making a 20 pound batch, you can get four of the 5 pound molds, etc.
Furthermore, custom sizes are available upon request. This is especially useful if you have a bar size requirement that needs to be met. For more information about ordering custom acrylic soap molds, please click here.
