Happy Tuesday time for a cp soap tip!

14 Aug

It’s Tuesday and it’s time for a Great Cold Process Soap tip!

I’ve been so busy lately that I can’t catch my breath! First let me show you some of my new soaps…

                    Eucalyptus Spearmint

Lavender

**Freshly Squeezed

Life is Good….My customers at the  Boonton Farmers’ market are the BEST! They’ve  been keeping me extremely busy. This past weekend I sold out of so many items I can’t believe it.

I’ve also learned a  lot of things like People like Silk in soap. So, I’ve decided to make some trial batches with silk –  to see if they sell better than ones without. There is a definite difference with the silk. The silk adds a silky smooth texture and feel to the bars.

Okay, now that I have that out of the way…Time for the Cold process Soap Tip!

 Do you you ever have trouble getting soap out of a mold?

It happened to me a few days ago. I forgot to line this one particular mold. The soap wouldn’t budge at all. I started talking to myself – I couldn’t believe that I didn’t line the mold. When I say that the soap didn’t budge I mean it wasn’t going to move at  all.

I decided to sit down and think about it for a moment. Glad I did because the answer just popped into my head. The Freezer……Yep, I just popped that baby right into the freezer and let it be for about an hour. When I took it out and flipped it over. Boom the soap came out.

I’m sure this will not work for every single soap but it worked for me on that one day with that one batch of soap!
Yippee for the freezer:)

AND the next time I’ll line the mold……..Plastic wrap works well for that mold.  You could also get a new mold like these molds from Bramble Berry!
