Then, set aside your mold to harden. Depending on the temperature and humidity of your home, this could take anywhere from a few hours to a full day.

Once your soap is fully hardened, remove it from the mold.

If you've used a silicon-type mold, you should be able to peel the mold from around your soap to free it. Once it's out, cut it into one-inch thick slices.

If you're planning to present your soap as a gift, you can wrap each individual piece with craft paper to give it a rustic feel.
