Does anyone have an ideas of some typical household items that can be used for soap molds?

Most rubbermaid/tupperware/gladware type containers, pringles cans, any kind of cup or container that isn't aluminum really! Milk cartons (the paper kind) are really good.

You have to have what type of soap in mind. I found a rectangular muffin pan (I guess) at a place. Would have been perfect for M&P and maybe HP. Would not touch it with CP because it was aluminum. Same thing for Loaf Pans and Regular Muffin Pans.

I have heard of using Pringles Cans.  PVC Pipe. Cookie Cutters. Thats all for now. Not going to rack my brain. Its already being racked by learning cross stitching until I start photographing items tomorrow.

I use pringles cans as really my only mold, they work really well.. you just peel them away when you're done, no mess!

I have a box full of mouse boxes right now that I'm thinking of using to make square bars..  I think I'll just tape the seams on the box and fill them..  I'll let you know if it works!  I've seen people use silicone molds before too, but I don't feel like buying a bunch of molds just for soap..  you can find all kinds of recycled goodies to use Smiley

I have used plastic drawer dividers.  I also have some plastic eggs (the Easter Egg kind) that I thought would be fun for a change.

I like finding silicone molds at good will and using them

i use the rubber ice cube trays from ikea for melt+pour soap.

packaging might work. i had a ps2 that had packaging shaped like a controller that i wanted to make soap with for a long time.
