    Default Unlocking the secret... modern Williams Mug soap exposed to awesome lather.

    since 2003 or so, back when I used Mach III razors I have been trying to get Williams Soap to perform into a nice cushion of a lather. You know, the stuff you get from Tabac, MWF, Cella, etc. but it never did the job. I'll be frank, I have purchased at least 15 pucks of this stuff in my grocery store, I wanted it to work, but it always sucked, it sucked BIG TIME.

    Such a shame this stuff sells for a 1$ in the stores and is a wet shaving product but always falls short.
    But, Nick, how does it fall short, you may ask?

    The problems I always had:
    1) no protection on my face, razor burn....airy lather..ouch.
    2) what ever lather I could make would vanish in less than 45 seconds. What gives!?

    Well, recently I found the way to make Williams work. NO TRICKS! No Glycerin additions, no cream dollops on the side...no Ubering of the lather.
    How could this be?

    So, who here has tried Williams and said, well its slick enough but the lather is weak? It doesn't last on your face. You rub the brush on the puck over and over again and get no where in the end? Well, my friends I am here to help you. I learned how to make lather with Williams that ends up in an amazing shave without razor burn, BBS shaves even, total awesomeness for a dollar and change. I am here to turn you nay sayers, to tell you you CAN make a great lather with Williams, but you need to unlearn what you have learned.

    Like the greatest Draftsman since Leonardo Da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, he learned how to abandon form and draw unlike everyone else in the world to make the paintings that became "Picassos". He threw tradition out the window. And if you are unaware of what Picasso knew at the age of 8, he could draw like the best of them...but at age 20 he abandoned it all to think outside the box.

    Think outside the box with Williams....The method I am about to share with you will give you lather that makes HUGE peaks of Meringue that will sit in your bowl for over an hour. I know because I timed how long it took to disappear and yes it was in the bowl for hours. I will be honest, it takes arm work, but the reward is you may end up looking like Arnold in Total Recall.

    THE METHOD:

    Soak your puck of Williams and your BOAR or Bristle brush in hot water while you shower, nothing new.
    When you're done dump out the puck and shake and squeeze the water from your brush.
    Now work your brush on your puck of Williams Mug for about 45 seconds. You know when to stop when the brush sucks to the puck.
    Now take your lathering bowl and put a TON of water in it, enough to puddle in the bottom of the whole bowl. It seems insane to use this much water but like Picasso, you must unlearn what you have learned since you were in diapers.

    Now mix your brush of WIlliams in the huge puddle of water. At first you will think that it's no use, it's too much water, it's splashing everywhere, but keep mixing. Work your arm for at least two minutes. It will get thicker and thicker...
    When you think it wont get any thicker, rub your brush on your puck a little bit more and add it to the bowl and mix for another minute.

    I GUARANTEE you will get amazing lather that is thick and dense and does not disapear. I had a BBS shave today with this and a dubl duck special no.1

    Try it!

    I don't think it's a new method but for those of us out there that have tried it over and over in the years and never got any kind of good lather should try this. I have tried all the top soaps before and never had problems like I did with Williams...but this solved it.

    There 1 one other "trick" to getting Williams to lather fast and easy

    Take 1 Cheese Grater and 1 puck of Williams
    Grate the entire puck and press the shavings into your soap mug or bowl with your thumbs and some wax paper

    This makes Williams, MWF, in fact any Triple milled soap lather fast and easy,,,
