I started using back around 2009 because I wasn’t really comfortable with all the chemicals in the regular liquid soaps I’d been using all my life. Since then, I’ve been using D-B’s daily for and . It’s actually the best I’ve ever used; it doesn’t make a thick paste like normal creams, but I’ve had no problems with razor burns and blades move across my face smoothly. The which I normally use leaves my skin feeling nice and tingly and it’s a great pick-me-up if you shower in the mornings.
I once tried using the soap as a shampoo for a couple weeks, but it made my hair feel really thick and it was almost impossible to run my fingers thru my scalp. The bottle does say to dilute it a bit, but I’ll stick with my for a while longer.
For the longest time I used the soap straight from the bottle but it left the cap a little funky after a while, and on top of that I was probably using a lot more than I needed to. You really only need a couple drops to do the trick and a 32oz bottle can easily last a small family for months at a time. I would not recommend putting the soap into a as it will likely clog. In fact, the Dr. Bronner’s bottle itself is even prone to clogging if you don’t regularly wipe it down. The soap by itself doesn’t really foam, but you can find that aerate the soap and work very well. I had once bought a bottle of soap that I rinsed out once it was empty and filled it with the Dr. Bronner’s. It works just as well, and I’d recommend getting a if you’re going to be using it primarily to wash your hands. It also lasts a lot longer in a foaming dispenser, because you don’t really need very much of the soap to get the job done.
In addition to washing your hands and shaving, the bottle also claims that you can use it as a:
- doing a
- pest control
I’ve used it successfully to get rid of spiders, but haven’t got around to trying it for mopping or . I’ll try it out for these purposes eventually and will let you know how it goes.
