"What tongue does your auld bookie speak?" He'll spier; an' I, his mou to steik: "No bein' fit to write in Greek, I write in Lallan, Dear to my heart as the peat reek, Auld as Tantallon.
—Robert Louis Stevenson in "The Maker to Posterity"For best results when lathering put a small amount of hot water onto the surface of the soap for a few seconds, then discard. Starting with a damp brush rather than a wet brush, lather the soap straight from container using circular motions on the surface of the soap, add a little more water to the tips of your shaving brush as required, continuing with circular motions to build your lather till the soap begins to form peaks. Face lather using painting motions with your brush.
