I just purchased a Brambleberry wood mold, but my M&P soaps come out with little notches on the side...and they aren't as smooth as I thought they would be....

Is there something else I should be doing after I pull them out of the mold....???

I don't really know of anyone that uses wood molds for M&P. M&P molds are generally plastic or silicone. Maybe paul will come along with advice since he makes wooden molds himself.

No, after you have released them from the mold you are done, unless you want to paint them or something like that.

Never heard of MP in a wooden mold either- though I am convinced Paul knows everything!! :)

Unless Paul says otherwise, I would return it if you can and get some plastic or my favorite silicone molds though they can be pricey for the fancy ones but silicone loaf pans from Walmart work great for big batches or candy molds, mini loaves, etc... for small ones.

Silicone loaf molds or even muffin molds from most any Wallmart type store work greata!

I know Brambleberry personally do not make their molds themselves, like I do, but my 12/24 Bar Slab Mold is perfect for M&P! There is a moderator here I'm making a log mold for that does only M&P! My TOG Econo Log Cutter will cut M&P poured in my TOG Log Mold! But if you don't want to do any cutting, check out either my TOG 6/12 bar Slab Mold or the larger 12/24 Bar Slab Mold W/Dividers!

These are so nice- of course I love the most expensive one! :)

LOL You sound like my wife! :lol: She always says she can pick out the most expensive thing too!

Look for a new Slab Mold to debut this Friday evening. It is a large production model. It produces either 20 or 40 bars of soap per pour.

Paul.... :) :wink:
