    Default Soaps. How long...

    If you were to stop buying any more shave soaps, creams, crops, samples, when do you think you might actually run out of soap?

    I will say 2022 as my soap collection hasnt gotten too out of control yet.

    How about you?

    I figure I consume soap at about 5 tubs per year. I have enough soaps to last 30 years. That will make me nearly 100 years old. Thus, my goal is to outlive my soaps.

    Unfortunately, many of my soaps will spoil before I ever use them up.

    I just won a puck of CBL Tonsorial in a PIF that , assuming I like it, along with my other soaps will take me well into 2021. Plenty of soap. I'm guessing about 20 months.

    Maybe I should add a few more circles at load time. 4.5 to 5 oz puck or jar lasts a year for me (shaving 3 times a week). I have one in the shave drawer, a travel tin of Frankenstein blend, and the next 4 stashed away, so I'm good till 2025.

    I’m guessing I have enough to last me another 5 years, but I know I will still buy more.

    I guess an indefinite time. (I don't know) but 40 or so soaps and there's 2 shavers here? Maybe 12 to 15 years. I do have a vintage old spice soap that is +/- 40 years old. Still good. Still smells good too. I never had a soap go bad yet but you can never say never.
