Awesome Products: Soap Grater Makes Bar Soap Flakes

There’s nothing worse than going to wash your hands, and picking up a slimy bar of soap that’s been sitting in a pool of cloudy water. It just doesn’t feel clean. It makes sense that soap bars have been replaced in recent years by the popularity of hand soap and body wash. We can’t deny that hand soap is convenient, pleasant to use, and easy to dispense, however it is watered down and it is neither economically or ecologically beneficial. To bring back the use of bar soap, Designer Nathalie Stämpfli has come up with a soap shaving device – a soap grater if you will – that dispenses fresh flakes every time you wash. This soap grater is attached to the bathroom wall and allows for a simple one-handed push to collect soap flakes.
