Don't waste lather

My shaving ritual includes three passes - down, up and across. And then I squeeze out any lather left in my brush, smear it over my neck,cheeks and chin by hand and gently shave it off. It's perhaps the nicest part of my shave - and it ensures I don't waste any lather.


  1. Do you know I do a similar thing. I squeeze out the remaining lather and rub over my face, also feeling for any spots I may have missed. I may, just get a warm flannel and wipe off (using the lather almost as a soap) or go over lightly with the razor. (Followed by alum then cold water etc.)

  2. Sometimes it's really great lather too!
