SAm, how long has the dog been missing the wee wee pads? I ask because, when dogs use the rug or rather by mistake use the rug, crystals build up from the urine and while you may not smell it with the carpet down once pulled up you will smell the most disgusting stench in your life, it penitrates th...

Shower with your soap of choice rinse off, take the body bar and run it over your body while still in the shower, the heat from the water softens the body bar as you use it, then rinse off again. baby smooth....Honest :D Works so well my wife will only go through 2 bars a year.. As in all things YMMV.

I work out ...

Clive, a very nice treat for yourself! One of my all time favorite creams.

I always start a tub and finish it and have always had the luck where my brushes would come clean with the next tub I chose to use after the GFT, seemed to wash the stain away.

Gary, I think every wet shaver comes to the point you have reached, some it takes a while longer to hit that feeling that he has enough, for me, I stopped buying razors when I found the Gillette slim set on 3 was as good a shave as I could find, it took me 60 or so razors to understand that, creams ...

On a DE razor the center bar that is notched was made that way to hook the DE blade once you partially pushed it out of the plastic/steel holder, this was designed so the user never had to touch the blade. All holders work this way, even brands like Crystal IP's that have the blade wrapped in the pl...

Gary, I agree, a test of at least 2 weeks is needed for a new cream or soap, I have gone to using a tub of cream until it is finished, you dont fully get the experience of a product till you dial in the lather. As I move from tub to tub it takes me a week to get the lather working to my liking. Thes...
