It takes two.

Dishes? Don’t mind if we do, since they’re letting us reach for this dreamy duo. Let’s start with the brush: It’s got stiff mixed-vegetable fibers, a solid beechwood handle, and, oh, only comes from a maker who’s been crafting wood brushes in Brittany, France, since 1947. Now, about those soap blocks: They’re French-made, too, and get the suds going with just a bit of water. (Take your pick from Grapefruit & Rose, Lemon Mint, and Sage & Basil; or snag the set of three while you’re at it.) Set these two gems sinkside, and we have a feeling you’ll look forward to scrubbing up a lot more often.
