    Default Nice bowl on a budget

    Found this bowl at a local budget market - it's made of pressed alloy and makes a great lathering bowl.
    They are packed in 2 and I paid 1.60 euro for both if I recall correctly
    The budget market is called 'Zeeman' - I know it's a Dutch chain but can't tell if they have any shops in other countries besides Belgium and HollandName:  fullsizeoutput_15fd.jpg

    Float it in a sink of hot water and you got something very special. Nice bowl!

    Thanks for the tip. Here in the Vosges mountains of France, my nephew lives in nearby Gérardmer, which has a Zeeman. I'll ask him if he can pass by and pick up a set of two for me.

    As Gasman suggested , I had it floating in hot water but strangely my precious lather disintegrated completely
    (it just melted)
    btw , I was using the Cella extra extra pura soap

    Heat will do that to most soaps. Try another soap. MDC doesnt vanish as much with heat.

    That used to happen to me with my scuttle until I stopped using REALLY HOT water. The heat just causes the bubbles to burst and the lather goes away very quickly. Very warm tap water works.
