How to make Goats Milk Soap last longer

We have all been there, in the shower, fumbling away at the last slither of our favourite soap, all the while thinking "I wish my soap would last just that bit longer!", Well it can. Using a variety of simple measures can extend the life of your soap. Read on to find out more!

Where should I store my goat milk soap to make it last longer?

To make your goat milk soap bar last, it is important to store it in a dry place. This means keeping it away from moisture, humidity, and direct exposure to water. Ensuring your soap dries fully between uses, means that it will retain its strength and will prevent the bar from becoming soft and mushy. This doesn't mean you need to keep it in an airing cupboard, but simply removing it from the enclosed humid space that is your shower and leaving it elsewhere in your bathroom.

If you happen to buy your soap in bulk, a great place to keep your stock would be in any cupboard at room temperature. It is important for the soap not to become too hot or too cold as either can be detrimental to the soap.

Should I keep my goat milk soap in a soap dish?

Keeping your goat milk soap in a soap dish will help to extend its life. Soap dishes are designed to help drain away excess water, so that your soap does not become soft and mushy. If you do not have a soap dish, you can place your soap on a dry towel or cloth, or use a mesh soap saver. We have a small selection of environmentally friendly soap dishes available.

How to avoid using too much soap?

Using too much soap can cause your soap bar to become soft and shrink more quickly. To make your goat milk soap bar last longer, only use a small amount each time you shower or wash your hands. You can also cut your soap into smaller pieces and use them one at a time. Another way to reduce your soap usage is to use a loofah or soap bag, either one of these will allow the soap to create a thicker lather while using less of the soap. Check our out range of Soap Bags to extend your soaps life.
