I had to look up what lixiviate means (separate (a substance) into soluble and insoluble constituents by the percolation of liquid) and I honestly have no idea what that would entail or why I would do it to a shaving soap... so I guess that put me in the 'no' camp Smile

My first thought was that it was a crime you could be charged with. After googling it, yeah me three, sounds like I was on the right track in the first place.

Chris, if you're using it as a synonym for blooming, then yes. If not, then, no.

No, but I do remove the remaining lather from my soap and apply it to my face before my second pass.

Yes but not if there is any chance of getting caught while performing the procedure.

I'm Danish. Please explain what you mean !
Soak ?
I soak my hard pucks for a minute or two.
The less hard soaps get 20-30 seconds with water soaking.

I admit to being parochial in frequenting only TSN and no other shaving forum. It is my intent to evolve our linqua francais beyond BBS, smilies and other vulgarities inflicted on prescriptive english until we become Shakespeares among the graffiti of the internet. It will be, HOMERIC.

Well said.

I've always felt a book wasn't worth reading that didn't warrant a dictionary as its periodic companion.
