The best bath salt containers will keep the salts clean and dry until they are ready for use. When choosing one, the buyer should also consider whether the closure can stay in place easily. The stopper should also be easy to remove and replace so that the user can get to the bath salts easily.

Plastic containers are a safe choice if the consumer wants to display the bath salts in the room. Clear or opaque glass containers are other stylish options for consumers. Metal containers and plastic tubes can also be used for this purpose.

Consumers who choose plastic containers for their bath salts have a number of colors and styles to choose from. They are lightweight and available in a number of sizes, styles and colors. These types of bath salt containers are a safe choice for consumers, since they will not shatter if they are dropped on the bathroom floor.

Glass bath salt containers are another popular choice for buyers. They are readily available from both online and brick and mortar retailers, and come in various sizes, styles and colors. Some consumers choose to display these containers on a counter or shelf. They can coordinate or contrast the bath salts with their bathroom decor to enhance the look of this part of the home.

Metal containers can also be used to store bath products. As bath salt containers, they have the advantage of being very durable. Retailers offer containers in a number of finishes, including tin, brass and gold. All of these types can add color and texture to the decor of a bathroom and are highly durable for storing bath salts and other items.

Plastic tubes are another good choice for bath salt containers, especially if the contents are being used for samples or as part of a gift basket containing a number of items. The container is made of clear plastic and comes with a plastic stopper. The user will need to remove it very carefully to avoid spilling the bath salts when trying to open the package.

Bath salt containers are available with a number of different types of lids and stoppers. A cork stopper is quite common and the user can twist it slightly when removing it. Glass bath salt containers may have glass lids as well, and plastic ones may have a top made of the same material.

@ddljohn-- Wood containers look very nice in the bathroom but I'm worried that they may absorb the moisture in the bathroom and cause the salts to go bad. Has this ever happened to anyone?

I think I like plastic jars. I'm in love with the tiered ones and the ones with several compartments. In addition to bath salt, I keep dry herbs and soaps near the bathtub to use while bathing. So the multiple compartments make life easier for me.


@SarahGen-- Oh I would not buy a glass jar. I'd certainly cause it to fall and break. Even plastic containers can crack and chip easily if they fall. I think the best bath salt container is a wooden or metal canister with a scoop inside. They're both very durable.


I've been using bath salts and bath sitz mixtures for baths often lately. I did not like the appearance of the bath salts in their original container by the tub so I went out and bought a nice container for it. It's basically a large glass jar with a lid and a spoon that hangs on the side. I could get a glass jar anywhere, but I really loved the spoon addition because I don't want to get the bath salts wet.

I'm a little lazy, so last time I prepared a bath, instead of going to the kitchen and getting a spoon, I put my moist hand into the box and got a handful of bath salts. It's not the ideal way to take out bath salts, especially considering that they dissolve in water. Now I won't have to worry about that at all. I just have to keep the jar a little farther away from the bathtub so that the spoon or jar doesn't get wet.
