There's another thread going about shaving mug size, and I thought I'd add an interesting discovery I've made about mug shape -- it makes a difference.
Up until a couple of days ago, I was using an oversized coffee mug with flared sides (basically like a soup bowl with a handle). I took it into the living to take a picture of it for a different thread, and out of laziness left it there. So for the last two days I've been building lather with a different oversized coffee mug, this one with straight sides.
Wow, what a difference!
The lather doesn't creep up the sides of the cup, it's denser, slicker, looks better, feels better. Does all the things it "should" based on the reports here and in the Mantic videos. I think that because more of the cream is "staying in place", it's now forming --and working-- the way it should.
As an experiment I whipped up a few batches of various creams in the new mug, and all produced a much better lather than the flare-sided mug.
Anyone else experience this?
