    Thumbs up Home made Shaving Sticks..Again!

    Make your own Shave sticks II. Nothing really new just showing how and the tools to do it.

    A few persons have posted good articles and here are a couple:

    Now, I am posting another milled soap method.
    Tools:
    #1 A crank type Julienne machine (3$ at a garage sale or a kitchen grater.

    #2 Twist-up Shaving Stick Containers, 2 oz ( Google it!)
    #3 Some semi soft soap ends...Cella this time
    #4 A pen or dowel to press the shredded soap in to the push up container.

    Just put the soap into the Julienne machine / against the Grater..Lady friend can help?... The lever handle pushes it against the shredding wheel. The crank above turns the grater disk to make the shreds This style sits over a plate which I moved for the photo. The box grater will sit over a plate also.

    Pack the shredded soap into the push up container with a pen end or a dowel or the end of a chopstick. If the soap is very hard spritz the shredded soap with water lightly from a spray bottle and let it set over night before packing it.

    Half hour near the sink including a scrubbing of the machine / grater and hands.
    Have fun.
    Thought: Mix some older soaps to make a new one of a combination of scents??
    Have fun and...

    Or you can just grab the puck and use it like a stick. The block stuck on top of the Arko is the last of a VDH puck.

    I have used an empty deodorant tube with Cella and the tube worked great but I prefer my Cella out of a jar so removed it and put it back in the jar.

    I do that with my Arko sticks. The containers I got have a short rod in the center so I just pushed the Arko stick into the tube and on to the little plastic stick on the bottom "pusher" part and I'm ready to go! Love it!

    Thanks Richard!
