So the soap we made at our soap meetup is solid, and presumably, useable! But the soap meetup thread is closed. I'd like to make plans to get soap to those who want it!
Here's the grand total. And here, I think, are the people who earned soap (did I leave anybody out? I probably did? Who are you?):

Some people already took home some soap, right? And then, I delivered some soap to rabbitrabbit, curious nu, and mimo at a meetup last weekend.

So, I think I'd like to start by figuring out a count of who needs soap and go from there. Maybe state your status below (have plenty of soap already, have some soap but need more, have no soap and need soap) and what types of soaps you'd be most interested in. From there, we can figure out when and where is best to exchange soap.

I have my share of the soapy spoils (haven't tried any of them yet -- they are resting comfortably in my basement). We're contemplating the best way to cut up and share the shampoo bar (and the russet "Peace and Calming" bar that my friend molded in the triangular cough syrup bottle). A wire in a miter box?

Just FYI on the shampoo bar, I found they didn't work well at all as shampoo; my hair was very heavy and oily after using it. But it works great as regular soap. Glad to have this thread to report back, the other one had closed by the time I tried that soap.

I got all the soaps! I took them with me, in their individual containers.

I have used them, and they smell very nice. Too much cocoa may have been added; they are a dark rich chocolatey brown, and some of that brown comes off on the skin. But immediately rinses away!
