Melted & Recycled Kitchen and Bathroom Soap Dishes

These eye-catching soap dishes are basically melted down recycled bottles. I don't know why, but I think they're fascinating. I keep trying to imagine what the original bottles looked like.

Soap dishes are an interesting kitchen and bathroom accessory that can easily be overlooked. Selecting some unique soap dishes will usually highlight a room, especially if you choose one that pops with the overall decor and tone of the room.

There is something fascinating about these soap dishes. They come from a variety of small stores on Etsy and they are each unique. Some of them feature intricate designs, like the ones from Glass Galore Gal. Most of her wares feature some handpainting as well. The ones on this beer bottle soap dish really stand out.

Others like the ones from Mossy Grove Glass feature more elaborate sculpting. The most interesting features of these soap dishes is their color and overall organic shape, which contrasts sharply to ready-made soap dishes that have a more industrial look. Prices range from $8 to $15 in most cases.
