    why are you suppose to wait so long to take the soaps out of the mold? once its firm enough to take out, why not?

    Same here. As soon as it's firm enough to handle without disfiguring it.

    The more insulated the mold, like PVC, or silicone deep molds, the longer the wait. Vicki

    Chris, I just had a class and she wanted me to use the bottom of a water bottle box from Wallmart. We lined it with a plastic bag. It turned out really really nice, perfect sized square bars! She gets the boxes for free, so she decided early what she wanted to use. Vicki
