This just might make me give up the pump. From Hammacher Schlemmer, the Magnetic Soap Holder suspends a bar of soap over the sink basin, thus eliminating scum and extending the bar’s life. The arm has a powerful magnet at its tip and is made of ‘type 201 polished stainless steel’ and has a solid steel base that acts as a counterweight. To use it, you simply press a thin metal disk–which has rounded edges that won’t interfere with normal use–into the soap itself and then let the magnet do all the work. Although it'll set you back 50 bucks, it just might save you money in the long run: Bar soap is much cheaper (and has much less packaging) than the pump variety.
