What do you all use (given you dont have spares lying around,) for soaps that came without a tin/tub? I have two atm that I want to use, but want to seal them up after to keep them fresh between uses. Thanks!

I use the XS sized food storage bowls also.

They're ugly, but they work, stack, are inexpensive, and if they are dropped they don't break and create a foot hazard.

I feel a little embarrassed on how easily that solution was. Haha..I was over here thinking a little too hard. Lol. Thanks Jim/Shadows!

The Grundtal tins from IKEA are very good, too.

I also use the small Pyrex containers with lids available in Walmart.

+1. I have found these work great for most shave soaps (sans magnets). I feel like every time I make the annual Ikea pilgrimage, I have to pick some up Tongue

I too love the Grundtal tins from Ikea. Something about them just feels like they were made to house shave soaps. I only wish they had a flat lid instead of the curved see through lid.

Other than that, they are the perfect storage solution for soaps and they look really cool.

Those are my favorite - around here I've found them all over - hardware and house-ware stores - supermarkets -Amazon. The pyrex glass is very strong. I see them in packs of 4 and 6.

Jim, those same sized plastic models are a great deal, light and unbreakable. Good choice! For the small price premium I like the heft of the pyrex. Harks back to my medical days...

With both, plenty of room to load a brush with little to no overflow. A great deal!

( BTW perfect fit for those WSO pucks! )

I also use small Pyrex bowls from Wal-Mart. Mine look just like the one pictured, but have a green lid. They come 4 to a pack. It's nice that they're microwave safe, so glycerine based pucks can be melted right in the bowl. I'm not sure about the formal name, or the size, but a 4 oz puck when melted makes it not quite half full. (Or half empty , if you're one of those types).
