Scuttles are not on the soap sticky, am I looking in the wrong place? From photos on-line, and having never used one or seen one in person, I can only assume that it is basically a 'double boiler' for your lather. Is this an accurate description?
The right answer is, is depends. You can use 2 bowl or just 1, it depends how you want to do this.I'm new and haven't tried to get a lather yet. Still waiting for my stuff to arrive. Reading the tutorial, it looks like having two bowls is recommended? Or did I misread something? I have a 70s era Old Spice mug on the way. I really don't have much idea what I am doing though. I also got a Col Conk Bay Rum on the way.
Hello DonnerJack and welcome to B&B. Start a new thread here and I am sure you will get some great answers. I leave mine uncovered, but covered if they come in a receptacle with a cover. I do not notice much difference.I'm rather new, and I was wondering what do you usually do with your soaps after you lather? Do you close the lid/leave it open to air dry? Does it matter if it's a soft/hard soap? Do you wash away the remainder of the lather from the bowl/container where "the soap lives"?
Thanks! Wasn't sure where to post (and for your answer).
I you use it everyday (i.e., 3017ing), a cover does soften the soap somewhat. Loading gets easier, although if the soap starts soft like a croap, it could get very mushy towards the end, which funny enough, can actually be somewhat problematic for getting the right amount of soap into the brush.I'm rather new, and I was wondering what do you usually do with your soaps after you lather?
