    I'm on the hunt for a new mold for my salt soap. I've been using this (they were way cheaper when I bought them!) and I want something a little bigger, but shallower. I bought this one to try and the silicone is too thin, so they warp a lot. Any advice? I'm trying not to spend too much money, ideally I'd like 12 cavities (two 6 cavity molds is fine) for less than $15.

    I don't use cavity moulds, just stick to my usual wooden log mould and when it's ready just cut like I do my CP.

    I do the same as Relle. I just use my log molds and cut at about 3 hours.

    I use rectangle or square cavity molds when I make salt bars. I don't often make them, but I would never get them cut in time if I used a loaf mold.;)

    I've not made many, but when I did I used a silicone muffin pan. They did not warp and the mold peeled right off of the bars.
