When using a wooden mold in the oven, should I use the lid? I am unsure of what the soap does in the oven since I have never done it before. I am relatively new to soap making and my father and I made some really nice wooden molds out of oak. Just need to know if it is a good idea to keep the lid on.

Thanks
Matt

i have wooden and plastic slab molds. i am currently doing room temp c/p. with the plastic trays. i seal with plastic attached to cardboard to eliminate any lye ash. for my wooden molds i place an electric heating pad on a cookie sheet, (on the kitchen counter) then put the mold on top, cover with plastic and the wooden lid. i cover with a towel until i feel the mold warming up and remove towel. i also shut off the heating pad. this so far has worked well for me.

hope this helps.

When I CPOP with my wood/silicon mold I do use the lid. Never gotten ash.
