Handmade by a family business in Redmond, Oregon, this wooden soap dish will help extend the life of your bar of Crow & Nettle soap. I have a colorful variety of poplar, birch, beech and cherry wood in stock, depending on my supplier's reclaimed wood shipments. This soap dish has minimal surface area to minimize the sticking of the soap. The wide angled channels allows water to drain quickly, which not only allows your soap to dry quicker, but also extends the life of the soap dish. I find that wiping the soap dish off and tipping it sideways for a few hours weekly also helps it dry out.
