I haven't bought it yet but this white silicone one might look less out of place in a bathroom than some of the bright colours.

assume large would be the better is the better size to get?

I have a couple of the collapsible dog bowls, in rather garish colours, and they do a decent job in lather production, although their main benefit, for me, is that they won't break themselves or anything else e.g. wash basins, if dropped. I have seen remarks from people who collapse them frequently, for home storage or stowage whilst travelling, that they can split on the folds, but if you don't do that often or at all, then I guess the problem shouldn't occur.

However, my favourite dog bowl is the LickiMat Wobble, which, at a magnificent 6.5″ x 6.5″ x 3.1", is almost large enough to wear as a shower cap as well. It's probably good for the dog, too, and the International Orange version is bright enough enough to wake me up on a sleepy morning.
yea thats the one i remember seeing i couldnt find it, i was looking for that one specifically, you reckon its better then the one above your post, the one @hotmetal posted?

also i wonder if they sell these in pound shops like poundland as they normally sell some pet stuff too
Aldi have some in at the moment. I did consider getting one, but I’m a dirty, dirty face latherer so it probably actually would end up as being a dog bowl, defeating the repurposing thing and where’s the fun in that?

thanks mate just had a quick look online and it seems the aldi one has a flat bottom on the inside of it instead of those nodules

Bought a ceramic bowl with a sort of elongated base which I used to hold the bowl while lathering. I mainly face later and use it now just to hold hot water and to dip the brush. I think I paid a quid for it. The only one I would love to try is the scuttle, but can't find one at a decent price. I read somewhere of using some thermic dishes (or something like that), but haven't done it.

Not sure if it's better, but it's a lot larger, the material it's made of is thicker and seems more durable, and rather than those few tall spikes like a stegosaurus's back, it has little nubs in large numbers throughout the interior. They produce a better lather, in my view. The possible downsides are the size, and, unlike the collapsible bowls, it doesn't have a flat bottom, so if you put it on a flat surface with, for example, your brush laid in it, it may capsize or roll over. The multitude of nubs make it a little more difficult to clean out any soap that lodges between or around them and won't wash off. You could end up mixing your very own bespoke soap from the residues if you don't clean it thoroughly.

Oh the power of targeted ads. I'm now receiving ads for those £3.99 silicone cat bowls, marketed as "travel shaving bowls" for £8.59. Seriously I think someone on Ebay has been reading this forum! If it comes up again I might screen grab it as evidence (but then that's free advertising for someone trying to sell me a cat bowl for twice the price, so maybe not!)
