Is your soap stuck in PVC pipe? Give this a try.
PVC makes a great mold for cold process soap! It is cheap and you don’t have to line it. I know many soapmakers who have a hard time getting their soap OUT of the PVC pipe. This is what I do.
- Don’t fill your PVC pipe to the top. You need room to jar it loose.
- 24 after making your soap, take it outside to some concrete.
- Drop it onto the concrete hard to jar it loose! Drop it on the side where there is head room.
- Push the soap out.
It does help if your soap goes through gel phase. Also, please note that I use recipes high in soft oils, such as olive oil. I use 2 times my lye for water.
I don’t coat my mold with mineral oil and I don’t freeze the PVC.
If you’re trying to remove your soap from PVC, I hope this video helps!
