Item ID

Made from
latex rubber
Measurements
Approx. 13" H (adjustable)
Notes
Wipe down gently with soap and water to clean.

Designed to hold a soap case with the bar soap inside, not the soap alone.

Reason for 9 arms (rather than 8):
Each arm is actually the half of one long tube that has a loop in the end. The 9th arm is the other half of the arm that goes up through the head and becomes the attachment loop (for easy hanging). Recommended for indoor use only.

Jens Widerberg

Swedish-born Jens Widerberg may quite possibly have the longest resume in the world. Ranked as Sweden's number two slalom champion in his youth, Widerberg later moved south to become an avid windsurfer. He's now Sweden's fastest kite surfer and the tenth fastest world-wide! Never one to rest on his laurels, however, Widerberg also funnels his energy (or whatever's left of it) into creating functional items for the home. Despite his extracurriculars, this multi-faceted mogul keeps it simple when it comes to design, drawing heavily from classic Scandinavian minimalism.

Comments about Shower Squids:

We have had this for a couple weeks now and we use to keep shampoo bottles and the squeegee hanging high and dry. The biggest bottle we have is 3" x 2" and the smallest is an inch around. After shrinking the loops it is a little hard to make them bigger again. We store our squeegee head-up in it and let the head rest against the loop the handle went through, rather than try to shrink the loop tight enough to grip the small handle. I don't really dig those eyes, but you can just turn them to face the wall.

      I bought this as a gift for my sister who will be traveling to Croatia & Spain. It doesn't take up much room in her luggage & will be perfect to hold their shampoo & body wash in a tight space.

          Comments about Shower Squids:

          I like how this product works. However, after a while it became discoloured. I bought the blue one and now some parts of it look white-ish, like soap scum (but it's not soap scum). I don't know if it's a problem with mine only. I just wished that for that price it would be of a better quality.

            Comments about Shower Squids:

            Great idea and product. Would like it if the arms were of varying lenghts so all products don't bunch together at the same height. Really like that it uses gravity so product is easy to squirt out, and also that they are no longer all over the floor.

                The product description showed that the loops would be adjustible, but they were not.

                      This is a great product. I have always hated those shower shelves that rust and get all caked with soap scum. This is easy to clean and brings a bit of whimsy to my rather dull bathroom.

                          Our children's bathroom often resembles a shampoo graveyard of half used bottles scattered all over the tub. Now, we just can walk up, shake the hanging bottles and know what needs to be replaced. Furthermore, it is just plain fun to look at and use.
