Handmade soap is a beautiful and natural product that can enhance our daily routine. However, to ensure that our handmade soap lasts as long as possible, it's essential to store it properly. Proper storage will keep our soap fresh, prevent it from going rancid, and extend its lifespan.

Here are some tips and tricks for storing handmade soap:

Keep it dry:

Handmade soap should always be stored in a dry place. Excess moisture can cause the soap to become soft and mushy, reducing its lifespan. To prevent moisture from getting to the soap, store it away from where water can directly hit it in your shower.

Use a soap dish or pouch

A soap dish with proper drainage can keep your soap in good condition. Alternatively, hang it in a soap pouch away from where water can hit it using a convenient hook like this one.


Store in a cool place

Heat can cause handmade soap to deteriorate, so it's essential to store it in a cool place. Avoid storing soap in direct sunlight or near heat sources, such as radiators or window sills.


Wrap it for longer storage

If you plan to store the soap for an extended period, it's best to wrap it in wax paper to prevent reactions with things it may come into contact with. Materials like metal from a storage rack can cause orange spots on the soap that aren’t harmful, but are just plain ugly.

Proper storage is key to ensuring that handmade soap lasts as long as possible. By following these tips and tricks, we can keep our soap fresh, prevent it from going rancid, and extend its lifespan.
