If you are looking to unmold faster than normal, there are a few tips that you can follow to make sure the process goes smoothly. Unmolding is one of the most exciting parts of making soap. You get to see what you have done for the first time when you cut your soap into bars, and the design really shows. The soap mold you use matters, a plastic mold is going to take too long, it’s better to stick with wood or silicon molds. Also make sure you use the right oils that will harden your soap quicker.
- Waiting is probably the hardest part of soap making, you have to wait until it fully forms into soap.
- The type of molds you use matter when it comes to curing, plastic molds tend to take the longest.
- If you are wanting firm soap, then the oils you use are what you want to focus on.
“Wood molds tend to be the fastest option. That’s because they have good airflow and they insulate soap well, which causes it to heat up. Higher temperatures can help you unmold your batch more quickly.”
