The Soap Keeper improves the life of your soap by allowing it to dry. The material, made from recycled water bottles, allows your soap to drain and air to circulate, keeping the soap dry and counter tops clear of any soapy residue. The Soap Keeper can be used alone as your soap dish or inside another dish and can also be used in the shower, keeping your soap in place. Plus it's easy to clean in your dishwasher or with water and a gentle squeeze. Soap Keeper: because drier is better.
