This is my first attempt at making loofah soap and I think it looks pretty cool. they smell like cucumber melon..I think they look kinda like cucumber slices.
I used the press and seal method instead of the one where you use PVC pipe and it worked pretty good. I left its original wrapper on and wrapped press and seal around it to make sure no leaks go out. After it hardened I cut it then layed the slices out and topped them off with a bit more soap to make sure the centers got filled all the way.

Looks great! Did you have any trouble slicing the loofah?

nope I let it harden 3/4 of the way then peeled off the press and seal and let it set the rest of the way and sliced it with a huge serated knife
