What do you line the Pringles can with and can something else be used besides clay to make the soap slippery? I am hearing (reading) that clay dulls the razor blade.
I use 4-ply Mylar because that's what I have on hand. You can use any paper -- freezer paper, parchment, wax paper. The clay works well in this recipe; not so much, I guess, in tallow/stearic acid recipe that's popular on SMF, although I've never tried that one.

A properly made shave soap will be plenty slick without clay. Thats why a holy grail shave recipe us so sought after.
