I have a wooden tub of GFT Rose that is "getting right down there". And I have a wooden tub of DRH Lavender that is closing in on it. In both tubs the soap is high on the outside, but down to (or just about in the case of the Lavender) wood in the center. Just looked at one on b/s/t and, from what I can see, the "wear" almost looks even across the face of the puck. Am I doing something wrong? My tubs look like inverted volcanos!

No sir, you are doing nothing wrong. Every soap I have wears from the center out.

That's my experience, also.

When it gets to the point of too little in the middle and most of the soap is around the edge, you could grate the remaining soap up and mash the soap shavings into the bowl.

Thanks, Murray. That is what I will do. Perhaps grating will make the soap go faster so that I have a better excuse for ordering new! Rolleyes

The only thing you're doing wrong is actually using your soaps till they run out (gasp - the horror!). In other words - you're doing it right! Smile

The tubs you see on BST have (generally) been used lightly and then put on BST.

You can just keep loading up without grating. The end is nigh, and the lathers will be just fine.

You could pressed the soap into the mild of the container if you want to have more symmetry! Biggrin
