Wooden Soap Dishes are great for handmade soap. Handmade soap makers typically never put ingredients in their soaps to make them rock hard (like commercial products). The best way to prolong the life of your soaps are to place them on a soap dish like the one shown in the photo. This will allow air to circulate all around the soap and let it dry faster. Extend the life of your soap and never leave your soap sitting in a small puddle of water again!
