    If you want a nice straight, good looking installation, use a clean (like new) dish.

    Cleaning an old soap dish is a bit risky: one wrong move and the thing cracks. Use a chisel or a grinder, with a lot of patience.

    Like DJ said, chisel and hammer and a lot of patience and care. The glue does not have to be perfectly cleaned off, but it does need to be enough for the dish to fit back in place properly AND have space for the new mastic that you will used to hold it in place.

    Hope to be successful, expect to fail in your cleaning attempt of the soap dish. I've cleaned a few, I've also broken a few. Wear protective gear and work carefully and safely.
