These beautiful soap dishes were custom made for Seal Soapworks by my brother, Lucas Aylor, who is an excellent woodworker. Check out his blog here.
Oak smells great and looks beautiful. These soap dishes have been dipped in food-grade mineral oil and are ready to hold your handmade soaps.
To keep the soap dish in great condition, once a week remove all soap from the dish, clean it, and allow it to dry out completely, which will take about a week. Once dry, apply an additional layer of food-grade mineral oil (same as you would use on a wooden cutting board). It works great to buy these in pairs for everywhere that you want a soap dish so that you can use one while the other one is drying out. Because of the additional care required for wooden soap dishes, you definitely don't want them sitting in a puddle of water. Depending on how your shower is set up, you might want to save these for use at sinks only.
Where do you need a soap dish? I have one at every sink, plus spares for switching out. These high-quality soap dishes would make a great gift along with a few bars of soap.
