FormaÂ® Soap & Sponge Caddy
This item leaks terribly! Plus there are no drainage holes and water accumulates. I am very disappointed that you would carry this poor quality item.

Nozzle falls off
This is a nice idea but the nozzle falls off and I can't figure out how to stop that happening. The Container Store sent a replacement and it has exactly the same problem.

Rusted and Cracked
After a few months of use, the top of the pump rusted and cracked and oozes soap out. With continued use, most of the metal has rusted. I consider this unacceptable as this item is meant to be placed in a wet environment. I do like the organizer attached to the bottle.

Exactly what I need and works well for that
Yes, this caddy collects water in the bottom of the small containers ...
BUT, because the containers don't have holes in them (which would eliminate the pooling problem) I can use them for the tiny brushes I need to clean my glass straws. The brushes go in the taller container at the back. They have very skinny handles.
In the short container at the front I store my pot scrapers.
Neither of these things drip copious amounts of water, there's plenty of air circulating around them, and the bottoms dry out quickly.
Once in a while I give the insides a quick wipe with a paper towel. I also periodically wipe the outside of the caddy to eliminate buildup at the seams.
Even so, it does eventually get to the point where it cannot be cleaned and I buy a new one.
I'm on my second one in 9 years and only replaced it because the pump stoped working. I had just switched to a 'green' soap, Dr. Bronner's, which is much thinner than normal dish soap, and it dried out inside the pump. I managed to get the plug out of the spout but couldn't get it off the spring even after soaking it in vinegar. I've gone back to my old soap (Seventh Generation) and the pump works fine.
I've just ordered two more, just in case they discontinue it.
OBVIOUSLY, if you store a wet sponge in a closed container, the water will not evaporate so don't use it for that!
It works PERFECTLY for my needs.
I also like the fact that it's rectangular.
