The dryer in my flat is condenser based so i figured that instead of tossing the water when i empty the tank I'd give it a try.
I used it with Mike's soap and it was the best lather I ever got out of it: very slick with good glide plus the excellent post shave feel that you get from Mike's.

You should try the water in Vancouver! Possibly the softest water around right from the tap. Biggrin

Congratulations and I hope it isn't too much trouble to do this all the time.

In Delhi we have a distiller over our kitchen sink. It's the only thing we drink water from. And bottles of distilled water in the bathroom for brushing teeth.

I haven't tried shaving with it yet Blush ... but since it's always there in abundance maybe I should give it a shot tomorrow.

* Good one, Bob!
However, it really is extremely soft water. I can never seem to get the soap residue off my skin when showering or taking a bath. Nothing compared to using hard water. Blush

I use bottled water with every shave. I have extremely hard water that always seems to dry up the lather.

I stayed in Tooele UT once and even though the hotel was equipped with reverse osmosis and a deionizer I could still taste the salt in the water from the salty nature of the soil...The shave was HORRIBLE too...Salt Lake City's water is much better my comparison!

On the other hand - after my shower I was SQUEAKY CLEAN...no slimy residue at all.

There are naysayers about hard water. I never could get MWF to lather but once we had a whole house water conditioner installed, MWF and everything else explodes in lather instantly

I'm giving MW a second chance, and I'm finding it actually stays hydrated longer with tap water instead of the RO water I normally use.

that was an interesting use of the dryer water....I would have never thought of that ... that is lather addiction at it's finest!
