GOOD TO KNOW
Soap bars have the potential to last a long time — the trick is to keep them as dry as possible between uses. Water breaks your bar down, so keeping it in the direct stream of your shower will shorten its life. Store it outside of the shower on a soap dish, ideally one with holes, to let it dry.
Also, before you use a new bar, cut it into two or three chunks. By using one piece at a time, your bar will last even longer, as the rest of it won’t be getting wet.
When there are only scraps left, try putting then into a small mesh bag to continue washing with them
