Valentine's Day Soapmaking
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Thursday, January 7, 2016

We love plastic molds for their intricate designs, and we carry quite a few for your Valentine's Day soap making and lotion bar making needs. One of our favorites is the Heart with Doves Soap Mold, which is heart-shaped with two loving doves floating above a warm heart. It makes three four-ounce bars of either soap or solid lotion and is popular this time of year for January craft shows.

Tips for Unmolding from Plastic Molds

Melt & Pour Soap: Pour melted soap at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF into mold. Cool until soap has hardened. Remove soap from mold. For easier unmolding, place into freezer for 30 minutes, and then immerse bottom of the mold in hot water for a few moments. Do not use cooking spray to coat mold. For a video tutorial watch Removing MP Soap from Plastic Molds.

Cold Process Soap: Coat the mold with cooking spray. Pour soap at trace into mold. After 24 hours, flip mold over onto a clean surface. Gently push the back of the mold until the soap begins to release then pull the soap out of the mold with a gloved hand. Allow soap to cure for 4-8 weeks. Note that some CP soap recipes may require a week to harden enough to remove from the mold. If this is the case with your recipe, we recommend adding sodium lactate to your recipe to assist with creating a harder bar faster. 

Lotion Bars: Pour melted lotion bar mixture into mold cavities at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF. Allow mixture to solidify. Flip mold over onto clean surface. Gently push back of mold until lotion bar begins to release then pull bar out of mold.
