    I made my first batch the other day and cut 1 inch but they are really too thick. I had an end cut that was 3/4 of an inch and really visually looks a lot nicer. It feels a lot nicer in the hand. I'll cut my second batch either tonight or in the morning and will go smaller. If you use the Dan's bands to wrap the loofah slices in they will fit better if they are less than an inch. --Linda

    Yep less than an inch so I can sell them for the same price, although I don't do them in my unwrapped sales, only retail or wholesale. They are just too much work to get $3 for them, and I don't want to have several prices on my soap. Vicki

    I usually cut mine about 3/4 inch. I've stopped doing them as they are just so time consuming. I will only do them special for family and personal use now.
