On the face of it, a soap dish seems like it’s only going to make things cleaner. You don’t want to leave soap just lying around to get contaminated, do you? However, it turns out that a soap dish might accelerate this process more than halt it.
In leaving your soap in one place all the time, you give bacteria plenty of time to gather on it. Not to mention that most soap dishes end up all damp and gunky, which only helps bacteria to spread.
