About a week or so ago when we were rained in I watched a video on Netflix about Dr. Bronner. He might be familiar to you. He’s the guy behind Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps.
In watching the video I realized this man was a genius. Sometimes misunderstood and other times over the top, but he definitely had an advanced brain.
Anyway, the movie inspired me to try his soaps. They’re all-natural and can be used for so many things. According to Dr. Bronner there were 18 in 1 uses. I’m not so sure I’ve found 18 uses, but I’ve sure used it for more than just hand washing.
So far I’ve used the soap as a body wash, shampoo, dish detergent, bathroom cleaning agent and dog shampoo. Some folks use it for laundry (which I’ve yet to try) and to brush their teeth (which I don’t have a desire to try).
What I like about the soap is not only the natural scent (so far I’ve used the peppermint and lavender scents), but it’s made from all organic ingredients. The plastic container for the liquid soap is made from 100% recycled material.
I’ve found that Dr. Bronner’s castile soap doesn’t dry my skin. The other day our dishwasher finally died so for the past few days I’ve been washing dishes by hand using Dr. Bronner’s soap.
I am pleasantly surprised that my hands didn’t revert to the sand paper consistency as I used to suffer with in the past. As a matter of fact, my hands are rather soft.
To prove how soft they’ve become, I ran my hands up and down the arms of everyone in the household. The first reaction was to draw back looking for blood, but they were surprised at how soft my hands were. Score one for Dr. Bronner’s soaps.
Another Step in the Green Direction
With Dr. Bronner soaps I can enjoy one-stop shopping. I can purchase the majority of my cleaning products in one bottle of Dr. Bronner castile soap. Between his soap, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, essential oils (especially tea tree oil) and baking soda, I’ve got a full cleaning arsenal.
Speaking of essential oils, I’ve been having a blast making my own natural bug repellents, but that’s the topic of another post.
