Craft tip today: How to easily remove soap from a plastic mold

Decorative soap is attractive and with all the supplies available in craft stores today it’s easier than ever to create your own soaps.  You can buy the soap base in blocks and melt it in your microwave oven, add some scents and colors and pour into inexpensive plastic soap molds for original decorative soaps to match our d├ęcor. 

The only problem is sometimes it’s hard to remove the soaps from the plastic molds.  You twist and push and pull and sometimes crack the molds.  I know they are easily replaceable at about $2 each but why replace them when there is an easy way to pop the soaps out of the molds.

Simply put the filled soap molds in your freezer for about 30 minutes.  Take them out and the soaps pop right out, easy as pie!
