Bamboo Countertop Essentials
Attractive but poorly-made and a bad idea
I have used these items for two months at the time of writing this review.
I love how they look. But they are poorly-designed and not well made.
Too many nooks and crannies for objects that will be sitting in a bathroom, with water and soap frequently running over them. I scrub out that soap dish every single day, and I still can't get out all the gunk that accumulates in the cracks.
The soap-pump dispenser stopped working, gummed up, and rusted all over itself after a month. I threw it out.
Overall, these looked nice at first, but were a waste of money. I will replace them with similar items that are smooth and seamless, made of glass or plastic.

Perfect set for me
My bathroom is all white and I have beautiful wooden floors throughout my apartment. The bamboo sets adorns my bathroom beautifully.

Kept rusting/discoloring green
I'm bummed that this is a negative review- I thought when I bought this set, it said it was rust resistant or rust proof. Well, it's not & I had to always make sure the stainless steel part of the soap dispenser was wiped up every other day or so, otherwise it would start building up a green-like rust that was really hard to clean =( I really liked the style of this set, but was very disappointed at how much maintenance it took to keep the soap dispenser in good condition. Maybe all soap dispensers do this, but I know that the shower head & faucets in my bathroom are stainless steel & they never rust or turn green - I'm guessing it's the type or quality difference? I don't know, but I would NOT recommend this to anyone. I was very surprised when I saw how high the ratings are =(

Soapdish holds up!
We purchased this soap dish 3 years ago for use in our shower. For 3 years it regularly got soaked during each shower and it has held up nicely. Only this past couple months did the wood finally start to show some wear (little swelling and some darkening). It was still functionally good, but being a visual perfectionist I decided to replace it last week. Because it held up so well, I bought the same exact one again.
