Before the first use
The natural tannins in cedar may stain light coloured soaps so we recommend using these soap dishes with dark coloured soaps only for the first few uses. If you do put a light coloured soap on there, it may absorb some of the tannins and it could leave a "tea" like stain. Tannin is harmless and is the same kind of tannin you find in black tea but it can stain so please be aware of this.
Take care on porous surfaces, such as Caesarstone, granite, concrete etc.
Cleaning and maintenance
Clean excess soap from gaps as needed. We like to use an old toothbrush and scrub the whole dish from time to time.
Western Red Cedar lasts for years and will gently age to a grey colour over time. If at some point you decide it's time for a new dish, this one can be buried because it's totally natural and unvarnished.
