I won't have glass in the bathroom. It's simply not a good idea. Did I mention I'm frugal? These plastic bowls are incredibly inexpensive, last forever, require no effort for me to find since they're in the market, but they are butt ugly.

Here's an old pic inside my shave cabinet, but it gives an idea. Oh, they stack great. Geez! I guess it's an old pic! But it does get the job done.

I am with Shadows Dad on this. I have been using them for many years and they have held up incredibly well. I don't worry about dropping them, they fit most soaps very well, and darn cheap! I have about 20 soaps in them currently.

+2 on the Grundtals. They are wide enough to accommodate all of the triple milleds I've used with them, and they hold a lot of soft soap too. My only quibble is that the curvature of the lid does not make them particularly stackable.

If you remove the magnets on the bottom with a small flat head screw driver they stack much better. The magnets are held with two sided tape so you don't need to put a lot of effort into removing the magnets.

Andrew, I completely agree. Thanks for the heads-up, I'll no longer be recommending these tins. I (mistakenly) believed them to be aluminum and not steel.

Great tip.

I purchased 6 tins in total the other day. They were on sale, so I ended up with 2 packs of 3 for the same price as a single pack of 3.

I intend to remove the magnets from mine as suggested.

Any tips for labels?

I print mine on photo paper and then wrap both sides with clear foil that's usually used to wrap notebooks in. If you have a laminating machine or can find self adhering laminating pouches those would probably work better.

Last year when I visited Ikea I purchased 6 of the tins along with the magnet bar holder to stick up on the wall. That's about the only good that the magnets are for. If I didn't have the magnet holder, I definitely would remove the magnet for easier stacking.
