Keep soap on this pretty, homemade soap dish.

A soap dish should never be a “dish” at all. Soap ends up a soupy, goopy mess if left in a vessel without drainage. Keep your soap high and dry with this simple project. Next to the tub near the bathroom sink or in the shower, this practical accent piece safeguards your soap with style.

Collect a couple of handfuls of smooth beach or river stones of varying sizes. Find a pleasing ceramic container with a drain hole in the bottom. Plant pots in all shapes and sizes–like these bonsai planters–were made for the job. Layer the larger stones at the bottom and smaller on the top. Just add soap. You can rinse the rocks in-situ every few weeks to keep them tidy.
