Get the best bang for your buck outta your soap! These gorgeous cedar soap dishes are vented, allowing your handcrafted artisanal soap last longer. Why vented soap dishes? When soap is able to dry fully between uses allows it to last longer. If you leave it on a solid surface (like the side of the tub or on a non-vented soap dish) the soap will melt and you won’t have it as long. I personally love these all natural cedar dishes because they are beautiful, smell great, and won’t rot with water. Please note, soap dish staining will fade over time and with use.
