    Default Curious about Pumice stone?

    I couldn't find any sort of thread on the "mysteries" behind using a pumice stone. So I searched a lot, not being familiar with pumice myself.

    One of the most important things, that I gathered, is to get a very fine pumice stone i.e. the smaller the pores on the stone the better.

    Pumice of course is a volcanic rock and it comes in all forms. Much of it is suitable to put in your garden but not for use with a strop. You have to look for the really fine stuff which isn't always as easy to find though most beauty supply stores have them as do many shaving sites.
