These soap decks will keep your soap dry between uses, and help it last much longer. Each deck is handmade from aromatic red cedar - they smell amazing! Cedar has been proven to be ideal for the damp conditions of a bathroom. It is resistant to absorbing water and won't deteriorate like other woods. Once cut and sanded, they are treated with butcher block conditioner to give them better water resistance, and a soft sheen. Each deck is approximately 4.25 inches by 2.75 inches and 1/2 inch deep.
