    Default Shaving Soap Storage

    I've just ordered and received the Honeybee soaps- as highly recommended by this forum- and true to the reviews- these are great.

    Being new to this - "addiction"- how do people store soaps..is there a container out there that just works well?

    I use disposable ZipLoc bowls that fit the pucks perfectly. I have been thinking about ordering tins from here though. -- Dennis

    One storage idea would be the GRUNDTAL spice-storage container from IKEA. Its a lidded container with see-through lid in a good soap size. Pretty cheap as well, only around 7-8$ for a pack of 3. They also have a magnet underneath which makes the sort of hangable

    The ZipLoc XS bowls work well. Not gorgeous, but for under the sink storage, they get the job done.

    FWIW, for just under $6, Walmart sells an 8-piece set of pyrex/glass containers (4 containers + 4 rubber lids) that are tapered perfectly to accomodate Honeybee soaps. They're made by "Anchor", with a listed size of 1 cup/236ml. I found 'em in the cookware/bakeware section.

    Here are some pics to illustrate:

    Al,

    Those work wonderfully well. They were all I used back in my soap "melting" days.

    In fact, if you remove the glass making the upper row and move the brush etc completely down and reorganize your creams a bit, you can store even more soaps and creams!
