Our customers ask us all the time, “What kind of soap dish is the best?” Our answer is always the same: drainage, drainage, drainage! This bamboo soap dish has almost as much drainage as it has material, and that’s what we recommend.
Made of renewable bamboo wood, this soap dish is just the right size to suspend and drain a bar of soap to keep it as dry as possible. Letting your soap properly dry out between uses is the best way to make your bar soap last as long as possible! This handy dish has huge spaces between the slats to easily drain water off of the soap. Plus, it’s sealed with waterproofing so that it will last a long time, even with the usual wear and tear of wet soap!
We love this dish because it won’t rust, it’s lightweight and it helps extend the life of your bar soap! It measures about 8cm x 11cm x 2.5cm (3.25″ x 4.5″ x 1″) and the crevice on the top helps the soap grip the dish. These soap dishes can also be used for shampoo bars, although the bars will stick out one side because the dish is a little narrow. However, it’ll still do a great job of draining your shampoo bar!
If you’re concerned about the water dripping through the slats onto your countertop, we recommend putting a small towel or cloth napkin underneath the soap dish to catch any stray water drops. We suggest that you replace it weekly with a fresh towel to avoid any smells, and launder the old towel. If you have water-friendly (plasticized, granite, etc.) countertops, you will probably find it’s fine to let it drip and wipe down the countertop whenever you’re tidying the washroom. This is what we do in our home, as the soap really doesn’t drip much.
