    Soap case and soap dish

    Hi,

    Are 'soap case' and 'soap dish' the same thing?

    "Case" implies something that has a lid. Have you looked those up in Google Images?

    Re: Soap case and soap dish

    I've saved the OP the trouble. Here is the Google Images result for "soap dish".
    In order to find images of what I think you mean by "soap case", I had to search for "soap dish with lid". They're here. I did search for "soap case" which resulted in similar images but it's not a natural name in BrE. I would call the ones with a lid a "travel soap dish".

    'Soap case' is natural enough in AmE. Using just Google.com versus Google.co.uk yields similar images for 'soap case'.

    Re: Soap case and soap dish

    Interesting. I've never heard it called that. Having said that, I think I've only ever owned one of them with a lid. I bought it before I went travelling in the States and needed something to keep a bar of soap clean and dry in my rucksack. I specifically looked for a "travel soap dish" so that's probably why that's the name I associate with it.
