Barbershop Prep Temperature?

“I use the hottest water from my tap onto my washcloth, ring it out a little, then put on my face/neck, but the warmth dissipates quickly and barely lasts for 30 seconds. So I repeat 2 more times. How do you get yours to last 3 minutes?”
From a performance standpoint it is OK for the warmth to dissipate. If you prefer a more luxurious experience then yes, repeat warming the washcloth. Hope that helps!

  1. I just switched from new razors to the traditional double edge. I have always used a hot towel, I have learned that a fluffier towel will hold the heat longer. (nukeing works wonders, or turning water heater temp up)

  2. I’ve had the same issue, I get better results if I wet a towel/cloth and then put it on a plate and nuke it in the microwave for 30-60seconds…
