Here are a few tips to help make Big Fat Lye soap more long lasting:
- After purchasing a bar, remove the wrapper and let the bar dry out a bit before use.
- Leave the bar to air dry after using. Don’t store it in a plastic baggie.
- Never leave the bar sitting in a pool of water in your soap dish
- This little Scrubby Heart brush cleaning accessory works beautifully to elevate the Big Fat Lye Soap bar from the bottom of a soap dish while drying out.
