Handcrafted poplar soap dish from Redmond, OR. These soap dishes are 2.75" x 4" x .75".
Poplar wood is a fast growing sustainable hardwood that grows in abundance here in North American, and it performs exceptionally well with water and moisture exposure. Poplar wood varies in color from white cream to light minty green as depicted in both extremes in the first picture.
This soap dish has minimal surface area to minimize the sticking of the soap. The wide angled channels allows the water to quickly drain for the soap, extending the life of the soap. This not only allows your soap to dry quicker and extending life to the soap, but it also extends the life of the soap dish.
A soap dish significantly extends the life of a bar of soap - but did you know that you can also extend the life of your soap dish?
Use your soap dishes in pairs to extend the life of the dish - use one dish for 2-3 weeks, and then wipe it clean with a damp cloth and set aside to allow it to fully dry out. Use the 2nd dish for 2-3 weeks while the first dish is drying out. Alternating wood soap dishes this way will prevent mold and mildew from developing and growing on your dish and greatly extend the life of the dish.
