Even though I no longer drink it, I still find coffee useful. I use it in my soap! Here's what it brings... Coffee strips odors off your skin. Gently. Fish, onions, garlic, even gasoline are all conquered by coffee, although I admit, when I spilled gasoline on my hands while playing with the lawn mower, I was sincerely skeptical. I reeked! It did take a couple of returns to the sink and soap, but it did work. Amazing!
The soap I make has no added fragrance. That would be counter-whatever... you know. Anyway, it does have coffee grounds and ground luffa for scrubbiness, so if you're mitts are especially grungy (expected when you're cooking!), this cuts right through the goo, and you're clean in no time. I've also designed this recipe with an excess of fats so it doesn't dry your skin. It's a dense bar that lasts a long, long time. Enjoy!!
