Decisions Decisions so many wonderful soaps and I need to decide what to order! :)
Hi, Erin! How long do your soaps last? For example, Lush claims that some of their bars can last up to 6 months with regular use. Just wondering how much I need to order! I will need to restock my natural products in a few weeks and am finally getting around to checking out your site. Love it and love the tab "Going the Natural Route."---Dinorah
Hi, Dinorah!Most bars of soap last 1 to 2 months, but they can last even longer than that. The soap that is at my sink lasts much longer than the soap in my shower. Factors that affect a bar's longevity are usage, drainage/drying time, soap hardness and storage. Applying the soap with a nylon bath sponge allows a little to go a long way, keeps the soap from becoming too wet, and creates a great lather. Storing soap in a well-drained area that allows it to dry between uses will prevent the bar from softening and dissolving prematurely. With a little care, your homemade soap will last just as long as commercially produced soaps! If you are interested in buying in bulk, I can offer a discount on entire logs of soap (approximately 13 bars worth of uncut soap).
