WTF – Hello Kitty Soap Holder

Hellllooo everyone!

Martina bought this thing right here. Isn’t it obvious? She buys all of the Hello Kitty stuff we have: Hello Kitty foot warmers, and now Hello Kitty hand soap magnets. Funny thing, though, which sounds ridiculous at first, but all of the stuff that we’ve got for the studio that’s Hello Kitty related we actually use quite a lot. That foot warmer we did a video on we fought over all winter. And now, this soap holder, we’re actually gonna really like and use a lot.

This thing is actually quite brilliant. Is this common where you’re from? I don’t remember seeing this in Canada. I hate when you pick up a bar of soap that’s been sitting in a soap dish, and the top is dry but the bottom feels like wet napkins, all soggy and stuff. It’s fine, because you’re about to wash it off your hands anyways, but I’ve just never liked it. Here, though, the soap dries equally all over. Hang dries. It’s so smart!

I’d like it a lot more if it wasn’t Hello Kitty, though. You know, I’m starting to think that this is Martina’s subtle way of trying to indoctrinate me into the Hello Kitty world. She’ll buy extremely useful stuff with Hello Kitty on it, so I can have positive Hello Kitty associations. I bet you next she’ll get, like, a Hello Kitty universal remote. Then, once I’ve stopped disliking Hello Kitty, because it’s so useful, BAM! Out she’ll come with the stickers and straws and socks and random crap and fill our house with it. I’m side-eyeing you, Martina…

Also, she’s the one who’s editing this video, so I’m sure she’s gonna tone down the naughtiness of our raw footage. I’m writing this now as she’s editing the video. Point is, for those of you who have been to Korea and know what public bathroom stick soap we’re talking about, you’ll know the connotations that go with the soap. Just saying!

Yeah! So that’s it for this week’s ultra useful and super fun WTF. We’re publishing this from our hotel in Beijing, and we’re just about to go to the airport. We’ll be back in Korea in a few hours. Yay to no more slow VPNs, and yay to being able to chat with you guise again in the comments. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t click on this pretty button below, though. Just saying :D

  5. Woow, I haven’t used bar soap to wash my hands in forever. Since I live in Japan, most of the soap is automatically dispensed and I loooove it. ^^

    P.S. I love the new commenting system. <3

  8. Oh, so I thought of an idea for a possible TL;DR! I’m very curious about Korean men having to enlist in the military. I know lots of idols also have to, since it’s the law and whatnot, but what is that like? Is it like… they enlist for two years but never get to go home or see their family/girlfriends during that time? Also, I heard someone online before saying if you’re an idol, you don’t have to enlist at all or not until later on? I know it greatly affects their music careers, with being gone for two long years. Since it’s every fangirl’s worst nightmare (OPPA NO DON’T GO INTO THE MILITARY~) I think it would be a very interesting TL;DR topic. :)

  12. This product looks pretty cool, especially for kids. I don’t know why, but it’s always extra entertaining when you guys film in the bathroom. In fact, the whole idea of having an office bathroom that is so much fun is awesome. Why does spanking never get old?

    Simon, I totally sympathize about the whole Hello Kitty thing. While I’m female and I do like *some* cute things, there is such as things as too much. Living with someone means compromising on decor but you should never feel uncomfortable. When I first met my husband his entire apartment was plastered with anime posters (his Nana even cross-stitched a giant bikini anime babe for him!)) and while it was geeky cool in a way, so many bigboobied babes all over the walls was kind of intimidating. I think I would feel equally intimidated by a roomate that Hello Kitty-ed or unicorn-ed a shared bathroom because I would feel like my tastes didn’t have a space to be expressed. I think that it’s cool that you appreciate her collection but I hope that she also appreciates that it’s a shared environment and it’s not necessarily an issue of it being too cutesy but probably more that she’s dominating the space.

    Cyber_3 – my husband just used the term “Neepers” because he saw my other post and now, boy do I feel awkward….LOL!

  15. The soap in my elementary school was that nasty one! The one you twist around a metal bar! Feeling really nostalgic right now. I haven’t used used one like that in over 12 years.

  20. Ugh. Stop being so disgustingly adorable you two. Imma barf. Blaaaahh.
    No I’m just kidding obviously. Well kinda. *insert forever alone joke here*
    Simon I do not understand your aversion to Hello Kitty? What is wrong with Hello Kitty? Is it because it’s all girly and pink? Or do you find her vacant, soulless, black beady eyes unsettling?

  21. “I hate when you pick up a bar of soap that’s been sitting in a soap dish, and the top is dry but the bottom feels like wet napkins, all soggy and stuff.”

    THIS! That soggy, slimy bar soap mud like soup is the reason I use liquid soaps. I’ll even take grainy powder hand soap over a bar any day.

  22. That is so smart! What a clever a way to resolve the hideous slimy soap conundrum! Thanks for sharing!

  23. Confession… when I used your bathroom and I used the soap I thought it was a permanently attached one and then it came off and I was like “NOOOOOO I broke the EYK soap holder, now I have to run away and never come back!!”
    Then I realised it was a magnet.

    The End.

  25. That’s super handy. We just have the dispensable soap for our restroom, but dang am i glad stroke-soap has not come to America.

  26. I’d love this product if it could stick to the wall in the shower as that’s the only time I use bar soap. I use liquid slab to wash my hands. I wonder if the adhesive could stay on after being bombarded with water.
    Also, bad Simon! *spank*

  28. I want that! We use soap bars and my bro never pours out the water from a soap dish after he washes hands. And I’ll go all naggy bcs of that lol. Not only it gets bleh to touch but the soap itself ‘melts’ much faster, so this magnet holder is a really clever thingy ;)
    Just one question: what’s with that magnet pointer when the soap thiners out? (I mean could it stab you and would it still be able to hold the soap?)

  29. I want one of these! Off to search the internet :)

  30. I’ve had this at home since I can remember! But I think this was more popular in the past (70s – 90s). People nowadays mostly use liquid soap (my fam still uses soap bars, tho).
    Woah, I’ve never seen anything like that stick soap… Nut sure about that. I think I’ll have to carry my own soap around if I ever visit Korea. :’)

  31. *Wags finger at the pair of you lovebirds while speaking in a proper english accent, “You two!” ^^ I haven’t seen this before, but it does sound brilliant. But didn’t you stab a sharp-needle of death into the soap? What about when you scrub down to it- 0.0!?

  32. that is pretty handy!!
    i would NOT want to touch the soap in public toilets if it’s like that!! i like my public toilet soap to be dispensed…..(if that makes sense?)

  33. i only have 1 question. is the soap gonna break into pieces when it gets thinner and thinner?

    2 years ago
  34. hey! it turned out alot more useful than the title suggests! ..although what would you do when you use up alot of the soap and it breaks into small pieces that you can’t jam the magnet into..? regardless the magnet holder seems pretty cool, i guess you could probably stick keys or other metal things to it.. :)

  35. You gonna be in Seoul on Sunday then? At the studio?! I guess I should visit Hongdae again tomorrow. haha
    Anyway I like Hello Kitty stuff too! Always when I went to the HK shops in Japan I felt like buying all the things! Especially kitchen tools! :D I think Hello Kitty and Piglet are my favourite mascots… Though I recently fell in love with Sumikko gurashi (http://www.san-x.co.jp/sumikko/), I died of the cuteness and sadness when I read their story…
    ahem… As for soaps, I usually see the bottle kind of the ones attached to the sink types. Which I like more than normal soap but with that magnet thing they actually might be nice to use!

  36. Love: smacking your partner on the ass and then being made to hold hands so you’ll both stop.
    I will say one thing: Simon at least you never through a store trying to see how much Hello Kitty things there were. Me and a friend did that in Walmart last year and then I ended up LOATHING Hello Kitty. I couldn’t look at any of that stuff for like a good 3+ months.
    That said that’s a really smart product. Though would the magnet rust from the water? Wait, can magnets rust? IbarelypassedsciencetheentiretimeIwasinchool

  37. My grandparents used to have that in their house. I loved washing my hands, just because of the magic hanging soap :)

  38. That soap holder kinda makes me want to have everything I own magnetized EVERYWHERE! The soap jammed onto the metal bar is very weird! I’ve never seen anything like it before.
