Alongside every kitchen and bathroom sink is a staple of cleanliness and hygiene — soap. For those who enjoy the traditional bar of soap, having a specific place to store this item is a must. One such item is the soap basket.
Kingston Brass carries an array of soap baskets, with a soap basket to match any room’s decor. For homeowners considering the purchase of one of these handy accessories, there are many benefits to be had. Check out the following reasons why soap baskets are a must-have!
Keeps Countertops Clean
Nothing is worse than putting down a bar of soap on the side of a kitchen or bathroom sink, only to come back later to a soapy mess. Bars of soap will leave behind residue when resting on a flat surface. This soap residue will continue to build up. Not only will the soap residue start to accumulate, but the soap left behind will attract dust and dirt in the air.
The end result is an unsightly mess on the edge of a sink or countertop. A soap basket keeps that soap off any surface, preventing the entire mess.
Helps Dry Soap Between Uses
While many homes feature a soap dish or other container to keep soap off of countertops, the reality is that a soap basket works far more effectively than these non-vented surfaces. After using soap, the bar is often left wet and slimy. When resting on a flat surface without any air flow, the soap will remain wet and will leave behind residue.
Conversely, a soap basket features ventilation for the soap. This helps to dry out the soap bar between use, which keeps things cleaner and makes the soap bar last longer.
Offers a Place for Sponges
Not only can bars of soap be stored in a soap basket, but other items can also be placed out of the way. In fact, most soap baskets feature a secondary basket where a sponge can be stored. This helps declutter a sink area and cuts down on mildew build-up in the sponge.
Adds Charming Style and Design
Last, but not least, a soap basket adds a charming touch of style and design to any room. Featuring an array of finishes, these little baskets add a nice flourish to the room.
