Intro

I created this guide and posted it on another shaving forum, but I wanted to share this information with TSN as well! So, here she is!

Buying soaps with their expensive containers isn't for everyone. For me, the fancy packaging is usually awkwardly shaped and far from ideal for loading your brush. The IKEA Grundtal is perfect in terms of price, functionality and design.

With my help, you'll be thoroughly enjoying your soap refills in a more practical way. I can't take credit for the idea, as I did steal the idea from other members, but I did improve upon what was suggested. I tried to print out a picture of the label to regular photo paper and fitting it snug within the lid, which quickly absorbed water, smeared the ink and lost it's shape. So, here is my contribution to the TSN community: the BMILCS GRUNDTAL PROJECT!

What You'll Need

Getting started is easy: head to Walmart and pick up the following:

  • Scotch Self-Seal Laminating Pouches: 4.3 x 6.3
  • Photo paper
  • Regular or Double sided Scotch tape

Go to your local IKEA or order the following online:

I went ahead and created a number of custom labels for the most common soaps. The exact size of the label is 254 Pixels x 254 pixels for those of you who are tech savvy, which is equal to 89.5 millimeters.

Getting Started


- Print out a label of your liking using Photo Paper. (Pictured above)
- Cut out the label within the outline of the design. There should be no white showing on the border of your cut out.

Open up the pouch

- Place the label inside, facing upward toward the sticky side of the pouch
- Remove the yellow strip and press it firmly so that it sticks to the opposite side.
- Remove the remainder of the packaging and press it securely to your label - smoothing it out as you go.

Cut The Label Out / Tape the under side


- Cut to the edge of your label - do not leave any excess plastic
- Keep the two pieces of laminate together by pinching them
- Lift the bottom side of laminate up and tape it together using double sided tape
- Admire your handy work!

Wrap it up already!

The label should fit perfectly within the lid of the IKEA Grundtal. Secure it with 4 pieces of regular Scotch tape and ENJOY!

The IKEA Grundtal is becoming the most popular way of storing your soaps and now you can do it with STYLE. I just spent 3 hours on this and hope that at least one person tries it out Smile.

If you would like me to design a label for a soap that I do not have listed here, feel free to message me or request one in this post. I am glad to design any logo you wish for your favorite soap and upload the image free of charge Smile

What I enjoy about the Grundtal is they are made all steel and have a magnet on the back which allows you to stick them to a metal strip on the wall. These are very affordable as they only cost $4.99 for a set of 3 at Ikea. The metal strip is $8.99.

No thank you. Your post made it so easy. BTW, I did not even have to tape the label to the inside of the tin. It sort of just squeezed in there perfectly.
