How to care for your natural soap dish

A wooden soap dish is pretty and useful.  It can add a little nature to your bath decor and extend the life of your soap bars.  Keeping soap dry between use is key to making it last longer – this is especially true of natural soap.  But how do you care for the soap dish? Don’t worry – it’s easy!

All soap can leave a little gunk behind.  It’s unattractive, but easy to clean.

Dish before

Just run a towel or cleaning rag through the grooves to clean out the gunk and rinse.  Or just run it through the dishwasher.  Let it sit and dry.

Dish when wet

Once it dries, it’s ready to hold your favorite bar of soap again.

Dish when dried

Noir Naturals’ Cypress Wooden Soap Dish is durable, attractive, and has deep grooves that help soap drain well.  It fits in nicely in the kitchen or bath and is just and lasts a long time with proper care.  Get yours for just $4 each and perk up your decor while extending the life of your soap.

A message from Noir Naturals’ owner: A look back and to the future

We’ve had a year and a half in 2013.  Noir Naturals’ owner wanted to share a few words with you.  

As we embark on 2014 I wanted to do a quick look-back at 2013.  In August we opened our retail store, but my wife and I had to make a tough decision in November to close the retail store, due to my health.  My hours at the store robbed me of time to fully focus on my recovery.  With the flexible work schedule I now have, I am able to attend my various weekly pulmonary rehab sessions, and rest in between my work. Having another retail store in the future is not out of the question. For now however my focus needs to be on my recovery.

We are still located in Ponchatoula and all customers are welcomed to visit my workshop.  Simply give us a call to set an appointment to come by.  Our online store is always open 24/7 and we’ll meet some of you throughout the year at craft fairs and shows like we always do.  This Fall we were able to see quite a few online customers face to face at shows.  It’s always a pleasure to meet you in person.

I am very pleased to report that 2013 was a great year for our sales.  We saw a vast increase in individual sales and wholesale accounts.  We added another member to our team and have a number of exciting product plans for 2014.

Thank you for being loyal customers of Noir Naturals. We wish you all a prosperous New Year!

Remember, we’re closed on December 31 and January 1 to celebrate the new year.  Any orders received on those days will be filled on January 2.
