A soap dish will increase the life of any bar soap, lifting it up so it doesn't sit in a pool of excess water. How to use: the open slats quickly drains away water. Use in the kitchen or bathroom. We love this dish paired with our dishwashing soap bars. Product dimensions: 4.75 x 3.50 x 0.75 Care instructions: soap can build up on the soap deck over time. Use a scrub brush to periodically clean out the grooves. Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial, but if you need to clean your soap dish, clean with vinegar. Over time, you may want to wax or oil your soap dish to extend it's life.
