Loofah - the ultimate soap dish

Hello!  How are you?  Well I hope!

I just wanted to share something with you that I think you're going to like.  If you buy handmade soap, then you are probably aware that to prolong the life of the soap the best thing you can do for it is to keep the soap nice and dry between uses.  This means leaving it in a well draining soap dish, or in a dish rack, or even resting on top of a dry face cloth (my method for a long time).

The methods mentioned above all work well, but lets just say you don't have a soap dish.  Or you don't have a stack of about 15 face cloths to use like I do.  Or your soap dish actually doesn't do much other than let your soap sit in a little puddle of soapy water.  These things can all lead to one sad bar of soap, last goes mushy, and sadly wont last very long at all.  Boo!

Well, here's my fix.  It's something that I've been doing for a while now, and I must say, I love the results.  What I do is pop my soap onto a slice of loofah sponge, and use that for a soap dish.  It works really well because the soap is in so little contact with anything, air circulates around the outside edges of the soap, helping to dry it out and make it last and last.  And the best thing is that if the loofah gets a bit grubby from having the soap sitting on it you can just rinse it out and leave it to dry and you're good to go again.  Awesome!

I'm so happy with the results in fact that I've added the loofah slices to the store as a special gift set with our new Loofah Kitchen Soap.  Check them out here.
