Natural soap shouldn't be left in water because it reduces the life of your soap.
Western Red Cedar has one of the longest life spans of North American trees and the wood and bark are decay-resistant. Native Americans valued this wood for making boats, totem poles, bark rope, and gave it the name "tree of long life." Today, cedar is used for house shingles, boat construction, and is great for saunas and spas.
Our artisanal soap decks are carved from solid, sustainably harvested Western Red Cedar. The deep grooves quickly drain away water. Use in the kitchen or bath; they will hold any of our soap bars.
Over time, the soap deck will take on a darker patina from absorbing soap and water, and the natural wood may stain light-colored porous surfaces such as untreated marble. We successfully use this on glass, granite, ceramic and porcelain counter tops and in showers.
Soap can build up on the soap deck over time, so use a scrub brush to periodically clean out the grooves - we have even had customers run it through the dishwasher on the top rack.
