Collection of soaps


An extensive collection of approx. 13,000 hotel-guestsoaps from 95 different countries and from all parts of the world.

We also display soaps from hotel chains, airlines etc. etc.



Other items on display are utensils for doing the washing that are now out of date: dollies, wash-boards, mangles, clothes-horses and soap beaters.



On display in four fine glass cases there are tablets of Sunlight soap, soap dishes, little bags of bluing (used to preserve the whiteness of laundry), several kinds of old-fashioned brands of washing-powder as well as funny little cars advertising brands of soap.

Some of the walls are decorated with old advertisements for soap.
