Product Overview

Our White Oak soap dish extends the life of your favorite natural and organic soap by allowing it to dry between uses. The grooves allow water to drain away and air to circulate around the soap. The closed cellular structure of White Oak makes it water, weather, and rot-resistant.

  • Made from White Oak locally sourced, milled and handcrafted right here in Ohio
  • A solid piece of White Oak - no glues, stains or preservatives
  • Deep ridges keep natural soap dry between uses
  • White Oak, used in shipbuilding, wine barrels, and whiskey barrels, is very durable and is resistant to decay--unlike pine
  • The high level of tannins in oak also help prevent bacterial growth 

A few words about Oak Tannins: Tannins have been used as a natural vegetable dye for centuries. The natural tannins in oak may react with the water or soap and cause the soap deck to darken with use. The natural tannins may also darken the soap or stain light materials. (See "How To Use" below)


Soap Deck Dimensions: 4 in wide x 3.25 in deep x .75 in high

How To Use
What Are Tannins

Tannins help protect the tree from being infected by bacteria or fungi. The presence of tannin actually makes a timber species more durable. The white oak tree produces high-quality wood with moderate tannin content.

The problem is that the tannin content in every white oak tree will be different depending on the age of the tree and growing conditions, such as soil type, climate, and other environmental factors. Tannin levels will also vary within the same tree. For example, higher tannin levels are found in the base of the tree than near the crown.


Oak Tannins Can Cause Stains: Our natural white oak soap deck have not been sealed and we have no way of knowing which soap decks contain higher tannin levels. The natural tannins in oak may react with the water or soap and cause the soap deck to darken with use. The natural tannins may also darken the soap. 


Please Note: Tannins are water soluble. It is best not to use the oak soap deck in an area where it is continuously soaked with water, like a direct shower flow. We have sold thousands of oak soap decks over the past 20 years. We have been told by a few customers that a wet oak deck can leach dark tannins that can stain certain types of light colored countertop or shower materials.
