Not sure why, but I love this. I have a guest bathroom that these would be lovely as decor. My family would have to get a little training prior to placing these in the dish next to the sink, lol. Can't you see the mess made with them using soap with fabric over it?

Am I telling my age when I say, I remember the guest soaps in shapes and colors to match. We were not allowed to use them. I like this idea. Its a spin on those soaps of days gone by. My family has moved away from bar soap to the liquid so I know these wont get used.
