The bar soap that lasts a long time, is the bar soap that is uses:
- Soap Dishes that allow for lost of air flow,
- Soap bags, in case you don't have room for a soap dish in your shower area.
They support lather and scrub in addition to being 100% biodegradable.
Our bar soap starter kits come with both a bag and a soap dish to get you started on the right foot.
To get the most out of my soap bars, I make sure to have three bars that I am rotating between at all times. When a bar gets difficult to hold, I drop it in my soap bag and continue to lather away!

When you get down to the last little bits, you have two choices.
1. Drop that bit into a bag, lather and repeat.
2. Get a new bar of soap wet, then get the bit wet. Then, stick them together with as much surface area touching as possible. The next time you come to check on your soap (when it is dry), they will have suctioned together to make a new bar of soap with your little fun soap baby kangarooing on top!
