Now that you have invested in a selection of natural handmade soap you’re sure to want it to last with a soap saver dish. However, many factors are working against you, steadily melting your soap away. Sometimes it may feel that you can almost see it melt away. One of the biggest culprits is moisture and water. Due to the large percentage of glycerin in handmade soap. Being a natural byproduct of soap making, glycerin is also a humectant. Which is to say that it attracts moisture out of the air. Unfortunately, this can be a blessing and a curse at the same time.
A blessing in that it helps handmade soaps moisturize the skin as it is used, yet a curse as the moisture it draws can play havoc on the longevity of your soap bar. This is why it is of the utmost importance that you protect your soap as much as possible! Removing your bar from the shower and use a soap saver dish to allow drainage and let your favorite bar of soap dry.
These soap dishes are designed to raise the bar off the counter, allowing air to circulate around the soap, which helps extend your soap’s life. Leaving your soap in the normal soap dish that collects water and blocks the circulation of drying air may work fine with commercial detergent soap bars that have the moisturizing glycerin removed. But for your luxurious handmade soap, they are a sure way to waste the best part of your soap!
