I have just found a way to to add a touch of authenticity to to your wash and shave kits, howver i do not know if this has been done before.

It refers to the brushless shave cream and for my example i have used the MOLLE brushless shave carton.
Firstly you will need a bit of a steady hand and the following kit,
Any brushless shave carton/tube any WW2 type.
some clingfilm or a condom.
a wooden spoon.
and a newly purchased tube of brushless shave cream, i used PALMOLIVE that i brought from Sainsbury,s.
this is what you do,
1/ Gently peel open the end of he tube
2/ Insert the handle of the wooden spoon inside and gently roll out on a hard surface so as to flaten out any imperfections on the tube but be carefull as you can pierce the tube.
3/ Once you have done this clean out the old contents i used a toothbrush some hot water and a jay cloth, doesn,t have to be perfect.
4/ Get the clingfilm and make a large square then fold it 4 times to a smaller square, then insert into the tube, use the wooden hanle to creat a space to accept the replacement cream.
5/ insert the new cream but not to much about 3/4 should do it.
6/gently fold over the excess clingfilm then reseal the end of the tube the way you unsealed it.

Hopefully you now have a WW2 brushless cream tube that you can actually use.
Alternativly try using a condom to line the inside of the tube bearing in mind that this is lubricated and should easily slide in (excuse the pun) then seal this in the same way.
This whole project cost less than £3 and took about 45 minutes to complete.
All the best and happy shaving.
