Flynn, I have not used it yet, only the 76* coconut oil. My buddy in Florida uses the 91* coconut oil and from CF. He says it is white and makes a harder bar if soap. It is nice to work with he says. Mainly, it is so nice and white. The LouAnn 76* as you know is sorta yellowish coloured.Flynn said:I'm on the east coast and you can get it at any Walmart Supercenter. Although, if your store is anything like mine, they'll have it when you don't need it, and never when you do. . . (I know of atleast one local soapmaker. . . hmmm, maybe she's getting to it before me!).smellitlikeitis said:Yea I wouldnt know about the East Coast..
Not sure if you have a Hannaford Grocery store in NJ, but you can get it there too--but it's the virgin/ unrefined stuff and cost way too much for me.
Paul, do you find any benefits to using the 91?Soapmakerman said:95% of the Coconut Oil is the 76* kind. I only know of one source for the 91* which next time I'm switching to.
ok Paul, I looked in walmart and I also work at walmart and could not find lye,or cocnut oil I looked everywhere where is it in your stores? and yes it is the supercenterSoapmaker Man said:Any Wal-Mart Supercenter! 31 ounces of LouAnn 76* Coconut Oil for less than $3.00. Mine sell it for $2.82 I think.
ETA: 95% of the Coconut Oil is the 76* kind. I only know of one source for the 91* which next time I'm switching to. It does not matter if you use the 76* or the 91* the SAP Value is the same. Soapers Choice AKA Columbus Foods is that source. They sell it by the gallon or 50 pound cube. LOVE CF!
I pay about $5.75 per gallon when I buy it in the local supermarket, and $4.06 when I get it from a wholesaler. A gallon is about 7 pounds, so I guess I'm paying about 58 cents a pound.Who has best price - Coconut Oil
