I want to attach a suction-cup soap dish in the shower. Suction cups don't work on my tiled bathroom walls.

It must have something to do with the material or texture of the tiles. I've tried different suction cups from OXO and other brands, I've tried cleaning the tiles with rubbing alcohol, I've tried attaching the suction cups wet and dry. They stick on for a minute or two, then lose suction and fall off.
I've also tried putting a piece of clear packing tape on the wall to create a smoother surface for the suction cups to stick to: no improvement. The tile feels quite smooth to the touch, but it's far from new.
What else is likely to work? Are there products sold for people in my predicament?
