How do I prolong the life of my soap?

All Earth Maiden Soaps

Some of our customers claim that our soap lasts much longer than regular bar soap. We don't really know since we have been using our handmade soap for over a decade. If you find that your handmade soap does not last quite as long as a commercial bar, it is probably because it is bursting with glycerin, a humectant which is so good for your skin. Here are some suggestions to help make your Earth Maiden Soaps last longer.

 If you have purchased several bars, use the extra bars to scent your linens or place in your drawers. Some will leave the soap out on display or as an air freshener .  The soap will continue to harden further the longer it is exposed to air. Some customers like to alternate between bars. This will allow the bars to dry out more thoroughly between uses. Our homemade soap, like good wine improves with age.

 We encourage you to keep your unused soaps in the kraft paper bag they arrived in. This will allow the scents to maintain their individuality as well as let the bars harden further. Do not store them tightly against each other or in plastic. The soap likes to "breathe". We feel like if the soap is stored in a plastic container, the plastic may actually leach some of the scent from the soap.

Use a textured or draining soap dish or even a wooden soap deck.  If the soap sits in standing water, it will soften and be wasted in the dish.

 Although the wire shower caddy's are a great place to store your soap, make sure that the bar is  out of the direct stream of the showerhead. 

 We have been making quality soaps since 2001. You will feel and see the difference!
