Contrary's Whey Goat Milk Soap Bars Last Longer on Our Wooden Soap Dishes

Wooden Soap Dishes to Extend the Life of Your Soap


Established in 1950, Manchester Woodcraft of Manchester, Vermont, follows the tradition of a small, family-owned and -operated factory store that employs local woodworkers. Ellie contacted them about fashioning a custom-made soap dish for Contrary’s Whey Goat Milk Soap. Much to her delight, not only could they accommodate her request, they said the soap dishes could be produced using “up-cycled” pine or cedar—a wonderful bonus.  And, because every piece of wood is different, each handcrafted dish has its own unique character. 

Use of a soap dish helps to keep the soap dry between uses, thereby extending the life of the bar.  Your choice of cedar or pine soap dishes, designed to fit Contrary’s Whey Goat’s Milk Soap bars, are available online, separately or packaged with a bar of soap.

Available in pine or cedar, our soap dishes measure 3″ x 4″ x 3/4″ high. Soap bars are 2.5″ x 3″ x 1″ high.

“Just a note to tell you how much I am enjoying your soap. This is the first time I have had any made from goat’s milk. It has a very good lather and my skin feels so soft after showering. Be proud of it!”
