Some years ago I found a soap made with olive oil, not palm oil. It has a brown exterior with a green middle and has been made this way for centuries. Like many handmade soaps it becomes soggy if it is not able to dry between uses. The mess on the bench was horrible. So I developed some soap holders which would enhance the soap drying and at the same time look good in my bathroom. After several attempts I finally settled on this design. It has very deep slits which allow the soap to dry well and the soapy drainings settle out so it does not need too much cleaning-up. When it does need cleaning however, a quick run in the dishwasher is easy. And it looks great in my bathroom If you have a size or colour you would prefer, contact me and we can discuss.
