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.
This is a great investment. The sturdy silicone liner fits perfectly in the wooden mold, and I get a reliable, normal shape every batch (no puckering, buckling, curvy, edges or weird rounded corners. I've been using freezer paper for all my 20 years of soap making and I finally made the wise move to a wooden/silicone mold and I'm so glad I did it. Easy to unmold, it practically slid out when I turned it upside down and carefully guided it out with very little coaxing. I appreciate reducing waste (no more freezer paper) and I just clean with some warm water. Really thankful for this excellent tool and the folks at Nurture Soap are timely and kind about answering questions. I highly recommend!
My Favorite Mold
This is the best mold out there by far!! It is very well made and sturdy, and the silicone liner is absolutely perfect~ my soaps release from the liner cleanly and easily every time. These molds were a great investment in my small soap business! As with all of the Nurture Soap products I have tried to date, I just cannot recommend them enough!!
BEST MOLD FOR SOAPING
Greatest investment. I don't have to use several smaller mold to get what this one can produce.
I will be purchasing at least 2 more so i can create a lot more batches all at once. Instead of waiting for the next day to use the smaller ones i have.
With the silicone liner it easier to release from the mold. Pretty color and easy to clean.
This mold has exceeded my expectations. The wooden part is extremely well made and very sturdy. The silicon lining is substantial and I trust that it will last long. I highly recommend this item!
Made a batch of soap in it as soon as it arrived. Turned out great.
