  • DILUTE! DILUTE! OK! – DR BRONNER’S MAGIC SOAPS

    Can you imagine running a hot bath and adding a naturally scented, organic, soothing, soap-lathering liquid to it, then getting out the bath to use that same product for oral care to freshen your breath?! Or can you imagine washing up your dishes with the same liquid that you use to wash your hair, or use as a detergent to wash your clothes? what about using the same liquid to mop the floor that you use to give your dog a shampoo bath or to wash your fruits and veggies! Yes, there is such a product that exists, with a wide variety of fragrances that the entire family, including the family dog, can enjoy!

    Dr. Bronners isn’t a new product discovery for me, as I have always kept a travel size bottle in my toiletry bag for whenever I travel. But it is a new product that I’ve decided to use for multiple purposes around my house.

    I’m currently using the Hemp Rose. And I purchased the 473ml from Wholefoods, which cost £9.99. What I love about this brand, is the short list of familiar plant-based ingredients, the selection of natural fragrances that smell really fresh and the ability to dilute it, and store it in different bottles to use for different personal hygiene and household cleaning tasks. Dr. Bronner’s is a gentle and kind product for people with allergies, cost effective (if you use it properly), it’s kind of easy to get your hands on if you have a decent whole foods store where you live or don’t mind waiting for Amazon to deliver it to you, and it’s a vegan product that’s packaged in 100% recyclable packaging. What more could you ask for!

    Now here’s what one bottle of castile magic can do. The following text is taken from Dr. Bronner’s packaging.

    Dilute, Dilute, Ok!

    1. One small squirt applied to a wet face cloth to wash hands, face, and body.

    2. Apply 1/2 tbsp into wet hair, rinse well with Dr Bronner’s Citrus Organic Hair rinse.

    3. Dilute 1:10 with water for hand-washed dishes, best in soft water.

    4. For laundry, 1/2 cup of soap in a large load, add 1/2  cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle.

    5. Mop the floor with 1/2 cup soap diluted in 3 gallons of hot water.

    6. Wash your dog by wetting fur, massaging soap in for good lather, rinse well.

    7. A dash in a bowl of water to remove residue from fruit & veggies. Rinse well. (Unscented Dr.Bronner’s)

    8. All-purpose cleaner. Add 1/4 cup of soap to quart of water in a spray bottle.

    9. One tbsp in quart of water to spray plants for bugs. Dash of cayenne optional.

    10. Shave face-underarms-legs: lather up 5-10 drops in wet hands. Apply.

    11. Cleaning your teeth, with 1 drop on your toothbrush. Yes, it tastes like soap! (Unscented Dr. Bronner’s)

    12. Clearing congestion. Use 1 tbsp in a bowl of steamy hot water. And breath in mist. (The peppermint would be ideal for this)

    13. Clean the toilet. Predilute 1:4 with water in a squirt bottle. Add ¼ tsp. tea tree oil. Empty toilet, squirt bowl thoroughly, sprinkle baking soda on the brush, scrub bowl, let sit 10 minutes, and flush.

    14. Soak your feet. 1 ½ tsp. in a small tub of hot water.

    Dr. Bronner’s simple, yet ecologically formulated soaps are extremely versatile and I know they can be used for even more household and personal hygiene care tasks. I’ve listed the fragrances that are available, including my current favorite, Hemp rose which I use in the bath, bathroom, and kitchen and my current travel size fragrance peppermint.

    I’ve anted to try this soap for so long. I think it’s genius that you can use the same thing for so many uses and it has a handful of ingredients.

      Hi Christal, Dr Bronner’s is wonderful. Plus, in the long run, you will save money. The different products that are out there are loaded with millions of ingredients and toxic. I will say that the brand ECOVER (washing up liquids) are really great. Try a small bottle and don’t forget to dilute it as it will go a long way.
