We are committed to long life, low waste solutions. The Block Dock Vertical Soap Dish as an evergreen solution made in 304 stainless steel or in powdercoated aluminium (depending which one you choose). It's designed for bathroom conditions and will stay in tip top condition if you wipe it clean from time to time (by finger or cloth, it's your choice) and dry it off completely on occasion.

The stainless steel Block Docks are dishwasher safe (sans suction cup). Better to keep the Aluminium out of the dishwasher though - it's not designed for in there. Both Block Docks are 100% recyclable at end of life, though not the suction cup sadly.  

The Suction Cup

While the Block Dock can stand upright on any flat surface, it does its best work when side mounted on non-textured walls with its suction cup. Ready to attach the Block Dock? You need to know this:

It WILL adhere to glass, acrylic, vitreous china, steel, most smooth tiles, and mirror.

It will NOT adhere to textured tiles, paint etc because the suction cup cannot form the vacuum it needs to work. If your glass has been coated with water stain protectant, it's not likely to suction to that either.

Each Block Dock is shipped with one 52mm pvc suction cup. Wipe the surface you intend to adhere the Block Dock to*. Wet the back and press hard where you want it. When you want to change the location just lift the small tag and the suction will break. 

*For some surfaces you'll be best to use isopropyl alcohol on the wall surface and the back of the suction cup. Pop the suction cup up by itself and leave it overnight. Then slot the Block Dock onto it the next day through the keyhole. After you know it will stay, add your bar and you're away laughing. 

If your surface won't suction (e.g. textured tiles, paint) then try a 3M wet/dry strip available at Storage Box or a hardware store, or if your surface allows it, a suitably sized flat head screw.  The surface needs to be flat/non-textured or the suction cup won't be able to form the vacuum it needs to adhere and stay strong. The most recently made Block Docks have some additional multipurpose holes in the back - for screws, for threading a cable tie, stainless wire, ribbon or whatever you have through so you can tie it to your shower rail or some other fixture in the event the suction cup just won't work for you. I've also had success hanging it from the hook on my shower curtain!

To remove the suction cup just lift the small tag on the edge to break the vacuum.

If you have a Shower Dome, you'll want to give your bars some time outside the shower to harden. Constant moisture is an enemy of bars and the shower dome environment can be brutal. Your Block Docks will adhere to the outside of your shower though, and I'd recommend you grab an extra suction cup to put in your external storage location and just move the Block Dock and bar to that place now and again to give your bar a chance to resolidify.

Block Dock Placement

Water is the mortal enemy of soap. So, to make sure your bar lasts and lasts, pick a location to suction your Block Dock which is outside the direct water spray. For example, above and to the side of the shower head - but still reachable. Where you can, wet yourself then use your dry bar straight from the Block Dock. It doesn't need extra time under water. Pop it back in your Dock to drain.

In basins and sinks find a spot inside the bowl at the back near the faucet but not in direct line of the water. This placement keeps your surfaces clear and makes washing your hands clean and simple.    

We appreciate your efforts to reduce plastic waste and wish you happy times with your Block Dock and bars.

Back to basics with this great product

Making the change back to soap bars is made super easy and stylish with these. I bought one and loved it so much I bought 4 more. They are now in each bathroom and I have one for soap and another for shampoo bars in the showers. They look great and the teal adds a splash of colour in my neutral bathroom. Love these, use these, buy these! Gave one to my brother visiting from Canada, so maybe he'll spread the word there too!

Work nicely

Brilliant simple but well thought out design - so nice not having mushy bars anymore! They haven’t budged from where I originally stuck them, and clean up easily. I got the stainless steel ones and they have a quality feel to them. I will definitely be getting more

So Clever

These are great little things - I bought 2 for myself a few months ago and have now got another one as a gift for a friend.
Such a good way of cutting down on plastics. It's working well in my household and every little bit helps!

Love them

I bought this set to kit out my house and gave a couple to my sister as a gift. They’ve been just great at home, functional and stylish. No more plastic bottles for me!!!
My sister just told me her house sitter was asking about them too!

Love it!

What a cool wee gadget! Looks good, holds my soap well, wish I'd heard of it sooner! Thank you
