My new soap mold liner
Now that I have my handy-dandy wooden molds, I want to come up with a different way to line my molds. I've been using freezer paper, but it takes me awhile to get the liner cut just right, and it's just one more item on my shopping list. So after some thought, I decided to try a reusable lining, quilter's template plastic. (I have a vague memory way, way back in some dusty corner of my brain of having seen this done before, so I take no credit for any perceived genius-ness.)
I'm pretty happy with this liner. I've used it about 15 times now and except for some minor warping, it doesn't show any signs of wear and cleans up great. I even slice my soap right on the base and it doesn't have any nicks or knife marks yet. So if you're looking for a new way to line your molds, give this a try!
