Tips on Soap Storage

Soap is flying off the shelves at SeaLuxe headquarters and into Christmas stockings. We’re so happy to be part of your handmade natural soap world so we thought it would be a good time to talk about soap storage.

Pack 'em Up

If you’re like us and have extra bars of soap lined up so you never run out, it’s a good idea to store them in a covered container in a cool, dry location that allows for air circulation. Proper storage means your handmade soaps will last anywhere between six months to a year. A cardboard container – even a shoebox – works great for storage!

Scents of a Feather

If you have a bunch of different types of soaps, it’s also a good idea to store similar scents together. Essential oils used in handmade soaps tend to mellow over time, and at different rates. It's an idea to use your citrus-scented soaps first, as citrus-based essential oils tend to fade a little quicker than say peppermint.

Breathe Deep

When using soap, remember to let it breathe! Always keep it on a slotted dish or rack where the bars can dry between usage. It’s so sad to see a lovely soap drown in a pool of soggy soap scum (and it’s not so fun to pick up to use, either).
