    I am toying with the idea of making myfirst batch of soap. I have some molds that I purchased over a year ago. They are (if I remember correctly) kind of a clear plastic. Anyhow, the recipe says to prepare the molds - what exactly does that mean? Also, If I make more soap than my molds will hold can I line a shallow HD cardboard box with parchment paper - or plastic wrap - and pour the soap into it?

    TIA from the soaping impared!

    I use mineral oil and parchment paper.

    Silicone bakeware work great soap molds. The cute Wilton ones that feature holiday shapes are fun for extra soap. :)

    Good luck and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    You can use so many things for molds, anything plastic, cardboard (that is lined) etc... anything at all.. even a rubbermaid container works for molds.. Grease with mineral oil or line...

    Sara and Barbara Thank You. I am sure I will have tons more questions. I really didn't want to start anything new before we move, but it seems like we will never move so maybe I will. :D Maybe I will make myself clean out a room or something before I "allow" myself to make any soap - ya right! :p
