Our 5 pound basic soap mold holds 63 ounces (3.94 pounds) of oils maximum. It will hold approximately 5 pounds of finished soap. If this mold is filled to the very top, it can yield up to 5.9 pounds of soap before cure or cook. Results will vary depending on your unique soap recipe.
Any liners purchased between 4/01/18 and 9/19/2018 will be about 1/16th inch shorter than our current batch of silicone liners. Liners purchased between these dates measured 17 7/8" and our current batch measures a full 18". We have made the wooden mold boxes to fit accordingly. There may be up to 1/16" gap between the liners and our current wooden mold boxes.
Needed to step up from making 3 to 5 lb batches and boy did I chose the right mold! I initially purchased 2 of these. The 3 holes in the bottom of the wood allows you to push the silicone right out ...simple yet brilliant. The silicone is a nice thickness and releases very well. ..oh and it makes a beautiful bar. I was so pleased I had to go back for another. And I got free shipping!!
First mold from Nurture Soap. Won't be the last. Liner is easy to clean and wooden form is heavy and very well made. Don't hesitate!
5 pound molds
I have four of these and I love them! Planning to get some more, at least four.
5 lb soap molds
I love these molds. My batch size is 15-35 lbs at a time, and these are the only molds I love to use. 7 months with the same molds and still in really good condition. Highly recommend!
