Plain and simple shave soap= Palmolive and Arko sticks.
I tried this out last year because of the ad posted above. I followed the exact directions and it works. The lather was slick with good cushion. It was boring and strictly utilitarian but it worked.Give it a shot! Try a damp brush and really load a lot ivory on it. Then slowly add water to the tips. Share pictures on if this works.
Vaya con Dios.OK, after re-reading this thread and especially the vintage Ivory Soap ad posted by rockviper, I pledge to use a bar of Ivory Soap for tomorrow's shave! That will be a departure from this morning's Cella shave! If I survive, I will report my results. OK, which of my Gillette razors and which blade should I use? Maybe an early 50's Super Speed and "The Spoiler" blade.
I was JUST thinking of a similar analogy to post but you beat me too it. "you could put regular gas in your mercedes too, but how smooth will it run?"You could shave with used motor oil, but why not use something pleasant and manufactured for the purpose?
