I just made some about two weeks ago. I added it straigh. I didnt grind it at all, and actually it isnt that scrubby.How fine is the coffee when you add it to the soap?
I sure do. I do it two days prior to making the soap, I leave it in the fridge to chill. I brew it strong!Do you brew the coffee in the recipe’s water?
I do not make any adjustments. I make this soap once a year around the holidays and never had a problem.Do you adjust your SF?
I think anymore than 1 tsp ppo and your soap is too scrubbie and rough on the skin. When making scrubbie soaps IMO it is important to remember that a little goes a long way. You want scrubbie action in your soap and not soap that is like sandpaper. What it boils down to is a matter of preference and 4.8 tsp ppo would be way too for much.Flynn said:1 tsp?! My % works out to about 4.8 tsp PPO! I guess it all depends on the grind of the coffee too. I guess I used about 4.8 tsp of ground Folger's--which I put through a grinder for 30 seconds so it's really fine.CPSoaper said:Not Smell but I add about 1 tsp of grounds ppo. I make mine on a regular basis, subbing the water out for coffee and adding the grounds at trace. I make mine to be kitchen hand soaps. Sometimes, I will add lemon too since lemon also gets rid of odors.
I'll post pics today.
