FormaÂ® Soap & Sponge Caddy
I use it for lotion, not soap
They should probably market this as a lotion dispenser, instead of soap dispenser. I haven't used it for soap, but from the reviews, sounds like I better not. HOWEVER: for a lotion dispenser, it works GREAT!
I got this originally for work, so I could keep my hand lotion (which I use all day every day) and my face powder compact and lipstick handy (touchups, since I'm in front of people all day) and not spread around in a cluttered manner on my desk. Works PERFECTLY for that. The pump is awesome, don't have to press hard to get just the right amount of lotion out.
I liked it so much that I got another one for my end table next to my recliner at home. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! :) I love the clean, squared design, and it works perfectly next to my Kleenex holder. I'm always writing stuff down as I think of things, so I keep my pens in there as well. LOVE this.
TIP: to get the lotion from the bottle it came in, into this dispenser, I got a gallon size Ziploc bag, squeezed the whole bottle of lotion into it, and then snipped off a corner of the bag and then squirted it easily into the dispenser with no mess.

Started great, not even close to rust-proof
Looked great for a long time, but it is definitely not rust-proof. Maybe rust resistant. Now, a year later, it is really rusty and makes the sink area look dirty. I am back to looking for a similar style...

Nice idea, terrible execution
I am a neat freak and this seemed like a nice idea to make the sink more organized, better looking and easier to clean. However, it just doesn't work, as the other reviewers noted. Water from the sponge pools at the bottom of the container. After a while there's buildup at the corners inside the sponge container, which is very hard to clean because of its shape and size. Water also seeps in the space between the plastic and the base. It gets grimy and rusty. The dishsoap spout gets stained. And most sponges don't fit at all. An SOS pad fits but will stain and form gunk. The scrubby included doesn't really work.
I hope the manufacturer will read these reviews and keep trying to improve this product. As it is, it is just a prototype.

This product looks really nice in the store but it is a waste of money! The metal sponge rusts the plastic once wet and the metal parts also rust on the soap dispenser. The nozzle constantly falls off of the dispenser, very frustrating!
