good LORD you fellas got a lot of stuffs!
Here's a treasure trove of information that took a lot of work from all of the SMF contributors. Are there any among us who would contribute the same type of detailed information for the current SMF membership? I'm still working on mine, if you're wondering what I've got in the drawers and boxes in the closet.

I think my list from Stash 1 has grown, so I won't go through the agony of trying to see what I have stashed away. :lol:

Well, let's see. Currently in use I have the following:

Valobra Shave Stick converted into a cake
Aos Unscented
AoS Lemon
AoS Lavender
Cella
Mystic Water (Lime)
Mike's Natural Soap (Lime)
Maybe a couple of others I have lost track of.

In reserve:

19 cakes of AoS
26 Valobra Shave Sticks
2/3 kilo of Cella
1 Mitchell's Wool Fat
1 Institut Karite
A few other miscellaneous loose cakes.

I'm thinking about ordering a goodly stash of
Mystic Water Lime and
Mike's Natural Soap Lime.
Then, barring any future temptation, I'll be set for life!

Seriously, after my GF commented on all my potions in the bathroom closet, I sequestered all but one lonely stick of Palmolive soap to a rather large Tupperware like box in the bedroom closet. Now I need not to endure her friendly barbs. :lol:

I keep only two out. Stephan's and whichever product I'm currently using. It seems to imply simplicity. If one only knew there are bulging plastic bins resting peacefully just a few feet away in the closet. :wink:

- Speick stick (10 sticks in reserve)
- Mike's Pine/Cedar

Wow. My "stash" is pretty meagre. Here it is:

Mystic Waters Lime, one puck.

RazoRock Artisan Boston Tea Party, one puck.

RazoRock LaFamiglia, one puck each of Don Marco and Cumba Cheech.



That's it. Works for me. Never a bad lather, never a bad scent. :D

Proper response to such barbs " yeah, I know, it's kinda like women I can never settle down with just one".

You must deliver this line with a sh!t eating grin on your face.
