Not exactly breaking new ground here, but I've turned two shavesticks I've had "forever" into pucks of shaving soap... in part with a hope I'll use them more often and use them up. I put both sticks in old deodorant tubes about six years ago after the wrapping paper disintegrated, but now they are just too hard to use comfortable as shaving sticks any longer. Luckily I had a couple of empty plastic tubs (they previously held BodyShop Peppermint Foot Cream; a product I can recommend by the way) that was just the right size for rehoming the shaving soaps.

Time taken all told; about five minutes including taking photos. New labels will be made once I got new tape for the label maker.

Good job my man. Except for  DR Harris sticks which are packaged smartly and therefore very convenient, it's what I do with any really good shave soap that only comes in the usual shave stick way of packaging ( Speick for instance ).

That's a great idea and much easier to fiddle with than the used up stick containers. Wonder why it is with Speick doing the foil wrapping anyhow?

Y’know, I’ve found that Arko does best when transferred to the waste receptacle next to the toilet... fits perfectly ;-)

Arko. 

You nearly lost me at Arko.  So, it doesn't look like you did any grating here. 

You just smashed them in? 

Sometimes force is all that's needed, and if it means you're more likely to use them - even the Arko - well - good on you. 

As a regular Tabac user, I try not to be too critical of other's scent profile choices...

Arko is soft enough that you can just do any forming by hand. I've tried grating softer soaps like that and it actually didn't work as well as just digging it out and smashing it in (something harder/triple-milled like a Tabac would definitely need to be grated).
