Blooming ? No thank you.

    I agree with @Rusty blade above. I don't have to bloom any of the soaps I have at home - except Williams. I put a few drops of water on it as I'm getting ready for my shower, if it's absorbed them, I put a few more drops on it, then take the shower. By the time I'm out, a wet brush gets decent lather (ring that mug like you're calling folks for dinner). When I used it several days in a row, it took less water to keep it in good shape. ARKO doesn't have that problem, neither does the can of Barbasol ;)

    I don't bloom soaps either. Some soaps can change consitancy even if the brush is too wet. Especially softer soaps like P&B, L&L, First Canadian, etc. Have a few soaps in the den that softened up, despite how long I leave the lid off they stay softer than before.

    With these softer cream/soaps it is best to scoop some out and not lather directly in the tub.
