Hey guys, just wondering what you put your shave sticks in, when not in use. I came back to my Valobra stick the other day, and it was just covered in dust and whatever. It was in the box, but the lid was opened (because it doesn't stay shut; the tab is ripped).
Do you have any special contraption you store your shave sticks in?
Just the box?
Out in the open (who cares about dust!)?

Thanks!

I keep my spares in a zip lock bag under the sink.The ones in use I keep in old prescription bottles. I don't know if it's necessary but I have never had any problems.

You can also track down a vintage metal Colgate shave stick holder.

Next question: how did you load it in there?
Just push/pressure?
Or some heating to help push/pressure?
Or fully melt?

My Arko and Derby I pressed metal skewer that you use for making kabobs on the grill right down through the center and slid them down over the post . They fit almost perfect and work great. Im sure you can use anything that will press through like a chopstick maybe, whatever.. For my palmolive (not shown) i grated it up and pressed it in firmly a little bit at a time.I had the flat piece that slides up and down almost at the top when i started. I grated the palmolive stick, pressed firmly, then lowered the flat portion a bit. I just repeated till I had 2 palmolive sticks loaded. All 3 work amazing. Then of course because im OCD I used the labeling from them to label the containers.
Do not try to melt these...it will not work!
