When I’m making 4lb soap, I’d usually use 24.32oz of water, but in my next batch I want to add fresh brewed coffee to my soap... but how much coffee should I add in it?? Do I have to use less amount of water in the lye solution? Can I use coconut milk in lye instead of water?!

I replaced all of my distilled water with coffee. Also, you should use distilled water to make your coffee...

PS....coffee + Lye smells really bad. Don't worry about that. It doesn't make your soap smell bad.
