Bowl noodles are a staple in our household, just in case there is nothing to eat. You can enjoy your noodles and have a sturdy plastic bowl left over. You can use the plastic bowl as a soap bowl, like we do in our household. We put soap and our sponge to hand wash our dishes.

I am looking for an inexpensive way to recycle something to make a soap holder or dish that will fit on the ledge of the sink and not fall off. I can't think of anything any suggestions?
Don't they sell handy little basket type things to hang over the divider in the sink for silverware or scrubbing pads? That should work.
I put my soap on a sponge. It keeps it from getting too gooey and every once in a while I use it to clean my sink and counter.
Cut out the bottom of a cardboard milk carton. You can stretch rubber bands criss-cross across the top to make a "drainer" so your soap can dry out in between uses. (I use 6 or 8 rubber bands to make a grid.)
If you buy fruit in a mesh-type bag, you can make a small mesh bag and hang your soap from a hook on the side of the sink or on the faucet. This also works well for all those little leftover pieces of soap in the bath. If you put a small sponge in with it, you can use the bag as a scrub brush on your skin and it foams up really nicely! I like to use this on the rough skin of my feet.
I cut the bottom off of a yogurt container, leaving a small plastic dish about 5 cm tall (you could also just use a small plastic sour cream/yogurt container instead of cutting down a large one) and then stabbed holes in the bottom of the container. I flipped the container over so the holey bottom was face up and the soap dish looked like an upside down cup with holes in the top.
