Sunday Night Spotlight: 9 Cube Soap Silicone Mold

Over the years, we’ve amassed hundreds (if not thousands??) of soap molds. We’ve got 3D molds, wooden molds and countless fun patterned molds. Sometimes though, it’s nice to have a simple mold that allows the soap itself to shine. If you’re experimenting with new colors or techniques or just want a super cool shape that fits nicely in the palm of your hand, the 9 Cube Soap Silicone Mold is what you’re looking for.

The 9 Cube Soap Silicone Mold is great for small batch production work (go for the mondo 25 bar Cube Mold for larger batches) or making simple and elegant birthday or holiday gifts. This mold holds about 3 pounds of soap — 45 ounces to be exact. Each cavity holds approximately 5 oz. of soap. Best of all, you can use this mold in both cold process and melt & pour soapmaking.

Because silicone molds insulate soap so well, we’ve found that adding Sodium Lactate to cold process recipes allows you release soap faster from this mold. We recommend using Sodium Lactate  at 1 tsp per pound of oils (add it to the lye water) and it’s great in combination with the 9 Cube mold’s larger counterpart, the 25 Cube Soap Silicone Mold. The 25 Cube Mold holds about 8 lbs of soap (125 oz., to be exact).

    The only mold I use now. I love this mold. I love the shape of the soap and I love the clear plastic boxes Bramble Berry sells for packaging. I live in Denver, a very dry environment. i do use the Sodium Lactate and can unmold the soap the next day (I know I should wait, but the temptation is too much!) I’ve used this mold for goats milk swirl, my own concoction of shea butter.

    Three Cheers for this mold! I know I’ve posted about it before but can’t stop raving about it. I use the 9 bar mold. Everyone who has tried my soaps made from this mold think they are so beautiful!

    Sodium lactate is a good idea however, I discovered this the hard way the first time I used the mold and it took 3 weeks to get the soap out without ruining it. After I started using SL in the amounts you recommended the soap now slides out in a couple of days. Thank you for your wonderful products!

    yes I have used the 25 cube silicone mold to make the goat milk swirl in the pot soap now a couple different times and I love the out come of the soap. Each bar/cube is different and is so cool in how it turn out in looks. It is also fun to cut this cube/bar into half or then into small cubes for samples. You end up with very unique swirls and color combinations. Because I was working with goats milk I put my soap directly in the freezer to set after making it for approximately 12-24 hours then I let them set for about 12 hours before I tried to remove them from the molds. Then I removed them with great easy and no gel of the soap. I really love this mold and would recommend it to anyone doing cold process soap. Thank you for your mold.
