the brand story:
The Block Dock soap dish was born in Riverton, Southland and is Made in New Zealand. Founder Clare had personally come to the end of the line for soap-storing solutions as they always resulted in soggy soap. She calls it the Block Dock (a rhyme to remember) and what matters most to Clare is that you use it. In her own words, "Now it’s easy for us ALL to give up the bottle - switch and stay switched - using bars for bathing and beauty (and for the dishes and laundry and pets). And that way there’s no plastic waste off to landfill."
And kudos to Clare, who went about sourcing a natural rubber suction cup specifically for Biome customers and ensuring a PVC-free product for us.

The Block Dock is 5.6cm tall, 4.35cm deep and 8.45cm wide; fits bars up to 4cm in depth (the shortest side of your bar).
This 60mm natural rubber suction cup is solid and strong and once it suctions will hold super tight. It cannot be described as delicate, but it does its job very well.
It is best suited to glass, stainless steel and shower acrylic - because it may leave a mark on release (which you can remove with cream cleanser). It would pay to release and re-stick regularly to care for the surface beneath. Do not use this super strong sucker on a more delicate surface. It's the best option we can find for #plasticfree.
Use a slide and twist motion to get the head of the suction cup through the Block Dock's keyhole. Then wet its back and place where you want it - push very firmly on the suction cup's flat head toward the wall. Once it's attached, if you want, rock the Block Dock side-to-side, downward until the flat head is near the top of the keyhole. A bit of lather will help with the movement. It works perfectly fine sitting lower also. When you want to remove the Block Dock from its location, just pull the wee tab on the suction cup or pick at the edge to break the suction.
To remove the suction cup from the Block Dock you'll find it easily pops out from the round part of the keyhole when you use a peeling motion with your thumb. The trick is to relax while you do it!
Clare recommends owners regularly clean their block docks with hot water while in the shower or at the sink and periodically re-moisten the natural rubber suction cup and re-attach it to their surface. Natural rubber tends to dry out faster than PVC but is the best eco option.

- Rated 5 out of 5 stars6 months agoworks well
It did fall off a couple of times to begin with but once you get the suction cup to stick, it works well. Doesn't matter if the soap is unbalanced - it stays put.LLeahVerified Reviewer

This is terrible. As soon as you put anything in the block if it is at all not perfectly balanced or leaning against something else, the tray spins on the suction cup and dumps everything on the floor.
It does not work for its purpose.
The toothbrush one is just as bad - if you manage to get it balanced and holding in place when you pick up a toothbrush it is immediately unbalanced, spins and everything is dumped on the floor.TTracy
