How to Line a Wooden Soap Mold

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard other soapmakers say they just hate to line their soap mold! I find it pretty relaxing, and thanks to the lesson from my soapmaking friend April McCart, there’s a method I use that is leak-proof and turns out beautiful soaps every time. I use wooden log molds of several different lengths, but the widths are all the same. The shortest one is about 7″ long and is the most difficult to line with this method, but it still works. I buy 15″ wide freezer paper by the roll from Uline, then cut about 4″ off one side before folding it for the mold.

I had a friend come over to help shoot some video, so here’s a quick tutorial:

If you have any questions, please let me know! I’m planning to make more videos this year, so if you are interested, I would be thrilled if you subscribed to my YouTube channel, and I will do the same.

  1. Thanks so much! I did have a question from someone on FB about whether the soap goes on the coated or uncoated side of the freezer paper – it’s the coated side.

  2. I have 5lb Acrylic molds. I tried a wood mold and didn’t like it (it was a 2lb and too much hassle). And I haven’t found a wood mold that I like and is easy to use. You’re is unique. I haven’t seen those. I like that it’s a piece that goes on and off as opposed to pieces you have to put together.

    I line my acrylic molds though and I can apply this technique to them 🙂

  3. I have to say, and I have seen a few “line my mould videos” that is the most easiest one I have seen, I have just done it, took me less than 5 minutes, thanks so much for posting x

  4. It looked simple and easy to follow and it was a great way for me know how to do my molds when I start my CP

  5. Thank you so much for your video. The video was super and once I watched you do it, it was a snap. Thanks again for sharing.
