Using a shampoo bar is great, but knowing how to store it so that it lasts longer can take a bit more planning. You want to be sure to store it properly so that you don’t waste it.

Here are tips for storing your shampoo bar both at home and on the go so that you can make the most of it.

Best Way to Store Shampoo Bars

A great way to store your shampoo bar is to keep it in a fabric or string bag. You can use this not only to hang it to dry when done, but for added exfoliation and lather when in use. The bag can not only wick away moisture while it dries, but it helps you scrub your scalp better than using the shampoo bar by itself.

Storing shampoo bars on a soap dish is not recommended because it won’t dry and can collect water which would melt away the shampoo bar.

If you have more than one, simply throw it into a mesh laundry bag after it’s dry while it’s in its string bag. Doing this allows you to find them all at once and easily wash the bag separately from the bars when it needs to be cleaned.

Traveling with Shampoo Bars

If you travel or go to the gym, taking your shampoo bar with you means thinking about the best way to bring it.

If you plan to be away from home for a while, taking the whole bar may be ideal. However, if you’re only taking a small trip, shaving off sections of the shampoo bar may be best to store it. Use a clean, dry case made of plastic or other nonporous material. You can dry any remaining shampoo bar pieces after you’ve showered in a mesh bag or use a case that has a drainage tray. If you choose a wooden case, look for one that’s perforated so that your bar doesn’t sit in water.
