Do you leave Shave soap in the mug?
There’s no harm in leaving your soap in the mug. As @PLAla mentioned, throwing some warm water on it for a few minutes should re-hydrate it enough for a good lather. Cheap storage containers do come in handy, though, if you start to accumulate several pucks that don’t already come in their own container.
How do you make good lather with shaving soap?
Most shaving soaps today come in a wide mouth tub. Soaking the brush helps to soften the tips and soak up water needed for creating a lather. As you do that, slowly add water by just drops at a time on the top of the soap. (Jared will simply dip his fingers in water and sprinkle a few drops at a time.)

What do you do after you use shaving soap?
It is not necessary to rinse out your soap after using it, but if you do, make sure you dry it out before putting the lid back on. Keep in mind that the longer the soap is exposed to air, the more fragrance is evaporated away, so I recommend wiping out the excess lather from the container rather than rinsing it off.
