This is very nice for dispensing soap on your sponge and it definitely helps to dry out your sponge. I had no problems with any type of leaking and it was easy to fill with soap. I was a little iffy about getting this after reading reviews about the dirty sponge water leaking into the soap dispenser portion. I opted to try it out and figured I could return it if I had the same issue. I’m glad I decided to get this anyway because I have not had that problem at all. First of all, you typically would squeeze/wring the sponge before putting it up to dry so there is not a whole lot of water that will be dripping off it. Secondly, the area under the sponge that catches any drips is sealed off from the soap holding section so I’m not sure why others had that issue. Thirdly, if there was a lot of water in the water holding area under the sponge, you just take off the top portion and pour it out since the top comes off very very easily. I’m happy with this!
