Tips to make soap last longer

  • Avoid storing your soap in a place that’s closer to the shower as constant exposure to water can break down its consistency.
  • After every use, it’s essential to let the soap air dry so the accumulated moisture can escape. The drier your soap, the longer it can last.
  • Use self-draining soap dishes so that water can escape through the base. A soap dish with no provision for drainage may look cute but don’t fall for it.
  • Instead of your hands, try using a cotton washcloth while bathing. The washcloth will help lather and clean better without using much of the soap. Occasionally use a loofah for exfoliation.
  • Hot water dissolves soap more quickly and also takes longer to lather. Cold water, on other hand, will ensure that the soap bar lasts longer.
  • Check the ingredients on the outer packaging. You should be looking out for harder fats and oils. This kind of soap is prepared at higher pressure and contains less air, so it lasts longer than usual.
  • If the bar is huge, it is advisable to cut it into smaller blocks so that less of it is exposed to water. Starting with less means much less to waste.
