Hey guys I found an old puck of old spice. It looks partially used but not too bad. Is it still ok to use?

Could you show us a picture? Still, I'd say it probably can... my Old Spice soap has a few decades on it, and lathers quite well.

I would suggest using a very thin blade to scrape the top 2-3mm of surface (and whatever tiny hairs and other debris are embedded) off the soap. Then it should be fine to use, although it probably has lost most of its scent by now.

It'll be fine. I'd just give it a quick test-lather to get the top surface off. Then rinse it off and put it in the rotation.
The thick creamy lather is a joy to behold.

I shaved with Old Spice and Mennen's exclusively for about 40 years, and occasionally work on my last remaining puck. Surprisingly, the scent is just about as strong as it ever was. I enjoy it, but it's not up to par with modern artisan soaps.

My dad always used Old Spice soap when I was a kid. He must have had a dozen of the Old Spice shaving mugs too. Its good memories.

Set the disc in hot water for three minutes, then with a fingernail scrape the surface and soap perfect.Biggrin
