Can shredded Loofa (Luffa) in soap clog a drain?

30 Jul

This was a question we got asked a lot last year at the Farmers Market. Then when we were looking at our Blog statistics we noticed people were searching for the same answer.  I’m guessing it’s because other soaper’s (people who make or sell soap) use shredded loofah in their soaps.

I admit last year we made one batch of soap that had shredded loofah in it.  Clogging the drain never came into my mind when I was making it. The first day we added the shredded loofah soap to our table Our customers noticed….

They would ask ~ well they would state I think this will clog the drain. For us it was better to be safe than sorry and we pulled the soap off the table.

Now, when we create a soap we keep  the drain in our minds…. the more we thought about it the more we would hate to hear that a soap clogged a drain. Now, we don’t put anything in our soaps that could possible clog a drain.

We want our customers to be happy!!

I’ve been struggling with mixing colors into oils/water for over 7 years.

And then BOOM! I hear about  this tiny little mixer.

When I say tiny I mean tiny. I mean it’s ONLY 7 inches long and about an inch wide. It’s cute! and if you mix colors into oils or water it’s a Necessity!

Here’s a picture of it….


This tiny piece of equipment makes mixing unbelievably easy. Let me also say at  this time it’s “ONLY” for mixing colors there’s not enough power for it to do anything else. But, it’s defiantly worth the money if you’re making a lot of soap.

This mixer can be found at Bramble Berry  or Wholesale Supplies.  You may also be able to find one in a Walmart or Target type of store….Wherever you choose to get one that’s up to you!!

Once you get one and use it (for colors) I can almost bet you’ll be thanking me…. 🙂

UPDATE: A reader was kind enough to tell me of another Type of mini mixer that they say works better than the one I’ve been using….It’s the
