Gel soaps are great and all, but once you switch to bar soap, it’s hard to ever go back. They just lather so nicely, and a lot of them have that “organic” aspect to them, which makes them more eco-friendly. However, you need to keep it contained so it doesn’t slide all over the place, and if water gets in with the soap, it becomes a soupy mess. There are many different alternatives to solve this problem, but this is definitely the first solution I’ve seen that uses magnets.
It’s called the Magnetic Soap Holder, and it uses a two piece system that will let you “suspend” your soap in midair. It uses a tiny disk that you insert into your soap, and once the magnets align, that bar isn’t going anywhere. This way your soap will stay dry so that it doesn’t become a mushy pile of hygienic goop. It will cost you only $6, so it’s not exactly a big investment.
