Soap Warmer

Makes shower time more comfortable.

Don't you just hate it when you get into a nice warm, steamy shower and find your soap, shampoo or shower gel to be at absolute zero?

I propose a small heating cabinet, that could even be incorporated into a bathroom cabinet, which warms up your shower products to a bearable skin temperature.

       vibrating soap? into a vibratin' phase at the moment

       No comment ;)

       or you could just heat your entire bathroom with central heating?

       We do have central heating, but alas the soap is still cold...Brings tears to my eyes just talking about it...
silverstormer, Oct 26 2003
  

       are we talking bars of soap here or the runny stuff?
po, Oct 26 2003
  

       Covers both bars of soap and the "runny stuff".

       Granted that I live in Los Angeles where the temperature of the shower and the shampoo rarely differ by more than thirty degrees, but why don't you move your shampoo to a closer proximity to your shower's stream, so that it heats convectively?   

       Alternatively, you've seen those "No-Fog" shower mirrors that are installed with a flexible hot-water tubing to your shower head. Why not utilize the same idea and create a Foster's beer-can-sized receptacle/coil that would hold your shampoo bottle, shaving gel, and bar soap? It heats the contents up while the shower water warms up.

       bar soap would melt - not a good thing.   

       funnily enough, I have been trying to contact you, jurist, to ask how hot things *are* in your neck of the woods.

       here in the great white north we have heating radiators... I have a BIG one IN the shower! I leave the soap bottle on it and it is soooo nice. There are towel driers, too that would do the same thing. I like the microwave idea.

       Put your soap in a bag warmed by body heat. It can be in a foam-padded pillow in bed, and in clothing (bath robe?) when you’re awake. A pouch in a large dog’s bed would also work.

       I like the idea of the dog warming it; perhaps in a barrel around its neck.
silverstormer, Oct 27 2003
  

       Just don't:
a) Try and shower when your dog's gone out.
b) Let your dog rescue anyone from a snowdrift without changing the barrel.
c)Let your dog get at the soap. Run, everyone. Rabid dog!

       This idea...more fun than a hole in your soap.

       I have a sharper image refridgerator/warmer that I keep in my bathroom. It ought to warm soap well.
