Plastic soap tray — 4 designs for recessed metal soap holders

plastic soap trays for recessed metal soap holdersI often get asked where to get a new replacement plastic soap tray aka soap holder for those vintage, recessed metal soap holders, like the ones so common by Hall Mack. I typically have advised, “hunt for vintage — try ebay”. But now, I’ve found a supplier, LASCO aka Larsen Supply Co., that sells four different plastic soap trays, large and small.

Four different plastic soap tray designs available

It’s hard to tell from the website which plastic soap tray will fit which vintage recessed metal soap holder, so I advise: Ask LASCO to help determine the right fit you need. Indeed, those old plastic trays got… brittle, not to mention gummy, over the years.

LASCO also sell the recessed metal soap holders with grab bars themselves (one example shown in the photo above) and a bunch of other plumbing supplies fun to poke around and look at. Sink strainer issues, anyone? American Standard Fiesta faucet

Note that LASCO is straight up on their market: Wholesale. So do not try to buy directly from them:

This new website was designed to help both direct accounts of our company and end users to find and use the products they need. We have created a new catalog that is searchable by description, part number, upc or manufacturer!

Indeed, I see these on Amazon, for example here’s one — I presume you will have to poke around to find the correct size for your recessed soap holder:

Six sets up for grabs on ebay as I write this.

Of course, it still is worth checking ebay for replacement plastic soap trays, And, it may be just as gratifying and maybe not much more expensive to start all over again with original New Old Stock ala: 

And golly, new from Moen today — and there are other brands too >> 

And just for fun… Remember this amazing recessed, revolving bathroom fixture?

    I found perfectly sized replacements for my 1959 house at my local Menards store. If you go to Menards.com they are the Classic Decor Replacement Soap Dish, sku#6752190. They retail for a mere $1.24 each. An amazingly low price for something others apparently have been stuggling to find. (BTW, I have no affiliation with Menards other than I shop there a lot!).
