When I first started I bowl lathered and would squeeze the lather out of brush into bowl and let it dry for next days shave. I don't do that anymore, but you do you. It's not going to hurt anything.
Hmmm... if someone topped my coffee/espresso/wake-up beverage with anything off my brush or out of my bowl I'd wake up in a hurry. I can't say things would go well from there. Sure is pretty though.
Absolutely. However, It's usually because I have some product left in the bowl in addition to the residual lather from the previous day. I have difficulty envisioning a hearty lather from just leftover lather, but I have loaded my bowl with extra soap, just so I WOULD have leftover product for the next day.Tried searching to see if this has been discussed; couldn’t find anything. (Maybe my search of “Multi-day usage” wasn’t honed enough. However; after perusing twenty three pages of results, I decided to post this query.
Anyone use ONE lather for MULTIPLE days? I’ve always been a bowl lather guy, and I scoop dedicated amounts based on soap brand (It’s usually 1/4 tsp, but some soaps, like Stirling, require a slight bit more). But, I normally end up with quite a bit left, after my shave.
I do have a full beard, so my usage will be significantly less than those doing a true full shave (I do neck/throat, and cheeks above the mouth line) Flushing all that excess kind of grated on me, I’m pretty frougal.
Stumbled upon a YouTube video of a fella getting a second days’ use, and decided to try it myself. A little rehydrating, and I was surprised that the soap (first try was PAA) worked just as well as day one. I’ve experimented with several brands with varying results: Stirling saw some diminished results on day two, Seaforth was solid for two days, PAA has yielded THREE days from a single lather, though day 3 wasn’t quite as slick, still passable, A&E, surprisingly, was pretty much unusable for a second day (it’s my favorite brand though), and Black Ship yielded mixed results (Grace didn’t fare well, but several others did).
I am a three pass and a cleanup guy, so it’s not like I’m going crazy with an excess amount of lather for day one.
Anyone else get multiple days use from a single lather???
