I made this soap dish when I applied to an art and design school (and I got in! 🙂 ). Actually I made two more, but let’s focus on this one. 😉 When you use hard soap water from your hands tend to drip down onto the soap dish and stay there making the the soap bar mushy. When you then take the soap bar in your hands it releases more soap than you need. Also, in this water bacteria grow. So the task is to dry the soap bar properly in between uses.
I made this soap dish out of stoneware clay. The loofah sponge (organic) helps absorb the moisture from the soap bar. As soap leftovers stick to the sponge you can use it to scrub yourself in the shower.
