Loofah soaps are one of my best selling soaps over all. It's a fun soap with a slice of loofah drenched in glycerin soap, scented, sometimes adding an herb or two on top (like you see in the picture).
Brings me to the point of where I get my loofah sponges to begin with. Typically, I order them online. Occasionally, I find a special on them in a local store. But it is usually ordering them from the same supplier because I want continuity in my product.
Last time I ordered though, the loofah had changed significantly! It was shipped flat, which is fine with me, all I have to do is soak it to plump it back to its original form. What was different was that when the loofah plumped up, it was MUCH larger than they were before. So large that it could not be held comfortably in your hand in the shower. This is extremely important! You don't want to be fumbling around with a larger than life soap in the shower! I pondered this for awhile, trying to figure out the best way to make these monstrosities work for my needs. I ended up cutting these things in half! It is much easier to handle now, but they just don't look quite as nice as the completely round ones, in my opinion. Who knows? Maybe you folks out there might like them even better! See the picture below...
So for now, the loofahs will be in half. Still a great item, just looks different. In the meantime, I will be hunting down some loofahs that better fit my needs!
The loofah soaps are not listed yet on any of my sites, but if you mention that you noticed this blog entry and purchase one of my half loofahs, I'll give you 50% off (yes, half off) the original purchase price through September 30th, 2009.
