Your idea is a good one and the advice is appreciated. What I should do is just toss the soap. It is a $4.00 .5oz sample. I just can't make myself throw it away. The wife likes the scent a little so at least it has that going for it. Maybe I will get lucky and it will not last a week.I admire your fortitude!
Maybe you could add a little of a cream that you do like, or grate the remainder of the sample and press it on top of another soap?
Oh, and the only reason it was ever purchased was to make the minimum purchase price for free shipping. Come to think of it that is where most of my blades have come from.
