In these zero waste times, many people are choosing to give up plastic bottles and use handmade soaps and shampoo bars. The only problem is that as they are very moisturising, they tend to go squidgy, unless you drain them properly. You could use a dry washcloth or even an old saucer. But if you fancy something a bit more decadent, here are some good ideas. Just leave to drain between uses, to let the bars dry out and last longer. Isle Soap Co Gift Sets include a bamboo soap dish.
Helen Round Soap Saver Bag is handmade in a Cornish studio. In a beautiful linen material, which is good to absorb moisture.
Battle Green Natural Vegan Soap Bars are sold with optional soap saver set which includes a sisal soap bag that secures with cotton drawstrong and a wooden bead. Place under running water and the friction creates a rich lather and the texture a beautiful exfoliant. Hang up until your next shower, to keep dry next time. You can also use it to collect soap slivers to make a bar of soap inside the bag.
Free from palm oil, lather up with water and avoid contact with eyes (rinse well with clean water, if this occurs). Do not apply to mucous membranes or broken skin, and discontinue use if irritation occurs. Choose from a round travel bar, a travel bar in a tin or a large block. Available in lavender, lime neroli or charcoal, with optional organic cotton reusable gift wrap.
