I am so hard on my plastic soap molds!

What all do you use that is not really a standard soap mold?

I have used Pringles cans. I love tart pans! I scour thrift stores and pick those up. As long as I spray them with oil first they pop right out.

I would love any ideas here!

Torangos Corn chips cans (like pringles but triangular tubes) 
mini pringles cans are good size for soaps with a bath scrubbie in them or a rubber ducky
candy trays, candy molds are good for single serving soaps

I make mine in bigger muffin tins. For flat, round soaps, just fill it about 1 inch. Looks pretty.

My daughter got a little girls bath set for Christmas, it came with a bow shaped soap that had a heart in the middle of the bow. The soap was in a molded plastic container, now I can make the same soap using what most people throw away. I have also used the molded plastic that mini erasers come in, I use the erasers for embeds, and the plastic for mini shaped soaps. Any toys that come in molded plastic (molded to the shape of whatever is inside) can be used. Start looking at what you would normally throw away when opening your kids presents this year.

The book "The Starving Artist's Way" has a project where you cut a mold out of rubber duckie. I think they do it for a candle, but it could be soap. Either way it's pretty cute!

I've used flexible rubber ice cube trays to make small soaps/inserts.  I also have a metal mold of a rocket ship that I got off of ebay; I have no idea what it was originally meant for but it worked OK as a soap mold.
