A soap dish ensures that you can use your soap or shampoo bar for much longer. This is because the water can run out of the tray and the bars can dry well. If you keep the bars in a closed container where the water cannot escape, the soap and shampoo will melt away. Sin! We sell beautiful, handmade ceramic soap dishes in beautiful, neutral colors. They are handmade especially for Earth Elements in the Netherlands by a ceramic artist.
