    Jim, that is an excellent way to organize that content for the soaps section.

    Great compendium! If you can't get a decent lather and shave from any soap, read each and every thread in Jim's links... you'll be a master of lather in no time!

    Great job Jim, and thanks for the one-stop solution for soaps!!

    GREAT idea to organize the stickies. Clears up the screen and puts everything in one spot!

    Excellent, Jim! I know I didn't know just what to do with the hard soaps when I started out. These threads are great.

    Man,

    This is the reason I'm glad I'm on this site! I had no idea what to do with my glycerine soap fiasco this morning...but, with Scotto's thread, I'll give it another shot tomorrow!

    This was awesome. I was getting to the point where I wondered if I'd ever be able to create good lather, and then I saw the tutorial.
    Thanks!

    This is brilliant!
    I wonder what would I have done if I hadn't gone through this post. I used the technique in this article for my first experience with soaps and whipped up an amazing lather with my Godrej Shaving Round, could have easily gone for 4 passes and more...

    Thanks a lot Jim!

    Great sticky!!

    Quick question, I have a lot of soft soap samples that I have to break into pea size pieces, how do you guys face or bowl lather with these? I have quite a few samples that I do not use because I have difficulty dissolving the whole piece while bowl lathering and the lather is sub par.
