Let’s talk about soap….baby, let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about………oh, sorry it just felt right! If you got that I give you a thumbs up with a head tilt and a smile, if you didn’t, thanks for making me feel old! Anyway, seriously let’s talk about soap people, specifically Dr. Bronners. We discovered Dr. Bronners 5 or 6 years ago and fell in love with everything it was about. Dr. Bronners was this little man named Emanuel Bronner who was a third generation master soap maker, he took that ability and wanted to make a difference in the world as a whole. On the soap you get a nice little history and way of looking at life, it’s pretty grounding. This soap is certified organic and certified fair trade, which means that they ensure the workers and farmers that they source their products from are treated and paid fairly for their hard work. You feel pretty damn good when you lather up with this soap, just saying.
This soap comes in a liquid castile soap, bar soap and different products such as toothpaste, shaving soap, lotion, etc. We mainly use the liquid castile and the bar. We are going to talk about how you can use this soap because seriously, it is so versatile you can use it from washing the dog to brushing your teeth. When shit hits the fan and all you have is a bottle of Dr. Bronners you’re going to remember this post and think, “ahh everything’s going to be alright, I’ve got my soap.” Let’s get to it.
These suggestions are coming right from the bottle, even though I’d like you think I am that creative with soap, I can’t take the credit. Our favorite ones to use are the peppermint, lavender and the citrus. Peppermint just makes you feel alive and tingly, lavender calms your soul like you wouldn’t believe and citrus wakes your ass up in the most peppy way possible. Here are ten ways to use all the castile soaps.
1. Apply to a wash cloth and wash your face, hands and body.
2. Use a small drop and lather in hair for shampoo. You can also use Dr. Bronners hair rinse after in place of conditioner.
3. Dilute 1:10 with water to wash dishes
4. Use in place of laundry detergent, just pour 1/3 cup in the machine and to soften use ½ cup vinegar.
5. Use it to clean floors, use ½ cup in 3 gallons of hot water.
6. Use it to wash your puppy dog. Hell even the cat.
7. Squirt a little in a bowl with water to wash fruit and veggies.
8. All purpose house cleaner. ½ cup of soap to a quart of water put it in a spray and bam you got yourself some cleaner.
9. Use it as a bug spray for plants. 1 tablespoon to a quart of water, you can also add a dash of cayenne.
10. Last but not least, use it as shaving cream.
I mean holy moly what can’t this soap do or clean. I have also made laundry soap with the Dr. Bronners bar soap. When making laundry soap you want to use a soap that contains coconut oil. Coconut oil is an antibacterial, which is needed to help clean the clothes. All of Dr. Bronners soaps contain coconut oil. If you haven’t discovered this soap yet, seriously do it now. It’s a thing of beauty!
