The 12" Tall Skinny Silicone Soap Mold is great for making cold process and melt and pour soaps! The sides of this mold are reinforced so no box is needed. Even though this mold is very sturdy, it will work best if not filled all the way to the top. This will help prevent any bowing of the sides. The shape of the soap bars that come from this mold are a perfect size for the hands. We love this great tall and skinny mold!
I used it for my MP and CP soaps. I loved it. Easy to clean and very steady.
Great mold but bows out...
I love the wooden molds with silicone liners from Nurture Soap, but I wanted to give this tall & skinny silicone mold a try. When I filled the mold with soap (I left a little room at the top), it bowed out on the sides. I had to put it in between two blocks to hold it together, and my soap was still misshapen/awkward looking. This mold needs a little bit more reinforcement to be stronger.
Great for the price
I have used my mold multiple times since I purchased it. It unmolds easily and is very sturdy. I am careful not to over fill because it will bow but as long as I don't put too much in, it works great!
Does the job
I’ve been wanting a T&S mold and was happy to buy two of these. I like the size of the bar and I am able to oven process in these fine. However, you must support the sides of these or the sides will bow and your bar will be a bit wonky shaped. I put both of mine in a cardboard box, with a towel between them to support the sides. I preheat the oven to the lowest setting, turn it off, and put the box in the oven. That’s been working fine. I will probably eventually purchase the T&S molds that have the wooden box, but this works for now and is more budget friendly.
These are also easy to unmold, but you have to be aware and slowly break the air lock on all sides.
