Introducing our new line of soap dishes! Soap dishes are essential as they extend the life of our great hand made soaps by allowing water to run off the soap, keeping it from softening in resting water. Our clever design accomplishes this perfectly. Beech wood is a sustainable, heavy hardwood harvested in North America. Poplar is fast growing and also sustainable from North America. Beech is darker in color, while Poplar is lighter. We use reclaimed wood from Oregon which is best for the environment. To extend the life of any wood soap dish, we recommend that you buy two dishes so you can alternate use of them every month, allowing your soap dish to dry out completely in between.
