Update on Corrugated Eavestrough Aloe Vera CP Soap

For those following my blog, you will remember my post about the corrugated eavestrough mold. For those of you just coming aboard, check out the first post here. Dawn graciously forwarded some photos of her finished soap using this mold.

Dawn told me that the first three CP soap batches went great in the mold. However, the fourth batch wasn't without problems. It seems the soap got too hot and melted one end of the mold. Dawn's suggestion: DO NOT wrap the raw soap in a blanket or towel if using the vinyl eavestroughing.

Dawn is going to make her next batch of soap in a metal eavestrough. She promised to keep me posted, so I'll be sharing her results in a later post. I still haven't forgotten my promise to try melt and pour soap in this mold. I'm hoping to whip up a soap batch this week.

That's a great idea! I really want to try soapmaking this year, but I'm a bit leary of the whole process. I'm going to keep educating myself until I feel confident enough to tackle the project.

Hi Deb! Please let us know if we can help you in any way. Just be forewarned... soap making it addicting.

I love the shape. If you use a metal gutter make sure it is not aluminum (most are aluminum or tin)

I would not use a metal one.The soaps do look nice.
