Your handmade soap will last a lot longer if you take a little bit of care with it. Don't worry, it's nothing too tricky!
- Store your unopened soap somewhere dry where it's not too hot or humid. You don't want the soap to be too near a heat source or it may start sweating inside the box.
- After you start using your soap, pop it onto a soap dish (ideally with draining holes) or a shower rack, so that the air can get around it and dry it completely before its next use.
- Definitely don't leave it in the bath water for too long, or you will find it comes out a bit gooey or slimy. If this happens pop it up to dry and it'll still be good to use but may not last as long. By the way, the gooey bits are natural glycerin and good for your skin but it's better to enjoy a longer lasting bar.
- If your shower doesn't have great ventilation you might prefer a smaller bar. You can take a sharp knife and carefully cut your soap in half. Use one half and store the other half back in the box. We hope to stock half bars soon.
Please be careful stepping into or out of your bath or shower. Soap can be slippery!
