I love this. It's made from a natural fiber called sisal. It measures 4.5 X 6 inches, plenty big enough to provide a cozy home for your precious soap. It increases circulation and exfoliates your skin. It lets the soap dry between uses- simply hang it up on a hook away from water spray. When you have a small piece of soap, just throw it in with the new one! No waste. Launder when it needs refreshing.
