Thanks for buying our handmade shea butter soap. Our soaps are a wonderful treat that you should enjoy everyday. And we do understand that you would like them to last as long as possible. Our soaps are formulated so that with a little bit of effort your soap will last longer.
Here are a few ways to get the most out of your shea butter soaps so you can enjoy them to the very last sliver.
Keep the soap dry between uses
Soap dissolves in water, that is the nature of the beast. Hence, the key to ensure your soap last is to keep it as dry as possible. So, it is important to keep your soap dry between uses. The more people use the same bar of soap, the more time the same will be wet. So handmade soap is one of those things you should not share unless…
Cut the bar of soap into smaller pieces.
Cutting the soap in half or smaller pieces will make the soap last long as you only take a small piece into the shower at a time.
Keep the soap away from water
If your soap is sitting in water all the time, it will become mushy. It is the surest way to see your soap bar disappear. This is where a good soap dish is your soap best friend.
Use an appropriate soap dish
Get a soap dish with has holes or notches to allow water to drain and air to circulate under the bar of soap and thus guarantee its good conservation. This will prevent your soap from becoming soggy & mushy. Do remember to clean your soap dish regularly. Dry it, before putting back your soap bar
Store smaller pieces in a soap pouch
After weeks of use, the soap bar disintegrates into small pieces. But nothing is lost! On the contrary, gather these pieces of soap in a soap saver/pouch. The sisal soap pouch also works as an exfoliating washcloth. Make sure to hang dry between uses.
Use a washcloth or loofah
You can limit the amount of soap you use by using a washcloth, a shower sponge or even a mesh sponge... It's that simple!
