Silicone Column Mold: This innovative 2-piece silicone loaf mold makes round soap that is amazingly easy to unmold. The mold design makes use of extra thick silicone to keep the sides from bowing out and distorting the round shape. The interlocking seal is simple to use, no clamps or bands are needed. And of course, since it is made of silicone, this mold is extremely easy to release your soap and wash. As with most silicone molds, your cp soap may need an extra day or two in this mold to fully harden since the flexible silicone sides do not allow air inside the mold, which results in slower evaporation of water and hardening of your soap. Works well with melt & pour soap, too!
Tip: If making Cold Process soap in this (or any) silicone mold we recommend adding Sodium Lactate to your recipe. This will help to harden up your soap so that there won't be any dents or finger marks from unmolding the soap.
Please Note: To avoid any leaking make sure the interlocking seal is fully pressed together around the entire edge of the mold. For an extra secure seal use bulldog clips on each side to keep the mold secure even while being jiggled and moved.
Care of your mold: We recommend hand washing your mold.

Works well but leaves a seam on each side. Even if I smooth it out, the seam is still noticeable. Maybe I should tape it before I pour. Any suggestions? I really want this mold to work out and would like to order another.
I have been making soap for 7 years now. I have used milk cartons, wooden boxes, plastic molds, plexiglas forms and silicone trays. This mold is my favorite for ease of use and a beautiful finished product. Well worth the cost!
This is a great mold, no leakage, sturdy base that stands without support. Great if you want to make thicker soaps, since you control the cut.
