All wooden soap moulds must be lined or the soap can be impossible to remove. We find that greaseproof paper (freezer paper) works best for us as its easy to use, readily available and much more environmentally friendly than plastic alternatives. This simple technique to line your soap mould requires:
- Soap Mould
- Baking or grease proof paper
- Sticky tape
- Ruler and Pencil
The mould is lined using three pieces of baking paper, one to cover the main length and base of the mould and two smaller pieces, one for each end.
Step 1. Measure the internal width of the mould. Measure out a matching length and cut the piece in half making a length for each end
Step 2. Use your finger to make a crease on the paper where it meets the base. It is important to have enough to cover the lip in order to secure it in place later
Step 3. Remove and make a crisp fold.
Step 4. Repeat steps 1-3 cutting out a length of paper that spans the body of the mould
Step 5. Tape the ends in place, followed by the main body.
Once your mould is lined it’s ready for the soap!
