Does anyone have a problem with getting scents out of your silicone molds? Is there a process to getting it out?
Also, any advice on getting your hardened soap out of plastic mold, other than freezer time?

I don't even try to get scents out anymore, nothing I tried helped.
The scent doesn't transfer to the new soaps so it shouldn't be a issue.

You can try greasing your plastic molds will a little mineral oil, very little. You just want a super thin layer.

A warning: Many people on other forums will suggest Isopropyl for getting the smell out, but don't follow that advice! It will shorten the lifespan of the mold.
