Stick to puck

Not exactly breaking new ground here, but I’ve turned two shavesticks I’ve had “forever” into pucks of shaving soap… in part with a hope I’ll use them more often and use them up. I put both sticks in old deodorant tubes about six years ago after the wrapping paper disintegrated, but now they are just too hard to use comfortable as shaving sticks any longer. Luckily I had a couple of empty plastic tubs (they previously held BodyShop Peppermint Foot Cream; a product I can recommend by the way) that was just the right size for rehoming the shaving soaps.

Time taken all told; about five minutes including taking photos. New labels will be made once I got new tape for the label maker.
