p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; } I bought a four soap mold with shells on it from Michaels (like Hobby Lobby) that I filled along with my large mold that holds sixteen bars. I have never had a problem getting soap out of it. I normally put the mold in the freezer for about five minutes and the soap comes right out. This new one with the shells on it was a different story. I ended up have to cut the mold off the soap which ruined the soap and the mold. Any suggestions besides not buying cheap molds again?

Try coating the molds with a very thin film of vaseline, thats usually enough to get the soap to pop out. If that doesn't work, put it in the freezer for a coupe hours.

I was wondering if I could spray some cooking oil in the molds but was thinking the lye would just eat it also. I will try the vaseline....thanks.

I've used mineral oil in the past and the soap pops right out.
