An $8.00 Bottle Of Soap That Cleans Your Entire House…Including You.

Did you know that for only $8.00 or so, you can get a giant bottle of soap that will clean your kitchen counters, your hardwood floors, your tub and sink, wash your hair, shave your face and clean your children? Yep, you can; if you don’t mind your soap coming with a slight side of crazy. Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps are made from all natural and organic materials, most of which are fair trade as well. The peppermint soap that we have in our house is made from Water, Saponified Organic Coconut & Olive oils (w/ retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Peppermint Oil, Organic Mentha Arvensis, Citric Acid, Vitamin E What do we use it for? All purpose cleaner for kitchen and dining room, cleaner for the bathroom, all the hand soap in the house and to clean our wood floors. It does need to be watered down before using on some things (like your skin), but that’s pretty easy to do and it makes the bottle last longer.

I buy the big bottle for between $8-$10 depending on where I buy it, bring it home, and start mixing it with water to fill up the hand soap dispensers, fill up the spray cleaner for the house, and fill up the little squirt bottle I carry to clean the wood floors. This way I only have 1 plastic bottle to recycle every once in a while, as all the other ones in the house get reused. I still do dabble in making my own detergents and cleaners, but sometimes saving time is just as important as saving a few bucks. And $8 for a bottle of soap that will clean everything in my house is not a bad deal.

    At 50 cents an ounce (it seems the bottles are 16oz.), it wouldn’t strike me as cheap. It may be great for all the environmental, health, and political reasons, but financially, I think a bathroom can be cleaned for about the one tenth price with simple diluted bleach.

    Dr. Bronner’s has been around for ages and I can’t think of a better cleaning product for everything. Bleach is not good for the environment especially for septic systems.
    Quick story: I owned a health food store for years, had all kinds of customers, none of whom scared me. Until the dark rainy night a huge, biker with tattos, chains, spikes, etc. came in. I was alone and really scared – until he bought a gallon jug of Peppermint Dr. Bronner’s – said he couldn’t live without it – washed him, his underwear, his Harley and his big rig. Told him he scared me – he said “I use Dr. Bronner’s, that makes OK, right?” Came to be a regular customer and told anybody in the store of our first meeting. There’s more to just cleaning with Dr. B’s.

    Bleach is one of the most toxic things you can use in your home, so I don’t really care if I got it for free, I would never use it. What it can do to your lungs and nervous system is unreal. Besides, it’s .50 cents an ounce for the concentrate of the soap…it almost always is diluted, sometimes at 10 to 1 ratios, making it much cheaper.

    Besides, can you use bleach to wash your face with?:-)

    Dr. Bronner’s is amazing stuff. I was introduced to it in the Boy Scouts, as it is ultra-concentrated (saving weight on backpacking trips) and can do almost anything with it. I used a large bottle in the shower at college and it lasted almost an entire year (and I shower at least once a day) – it was unreal.

    They also make a product called Sal Suds – household cleaner made from pine needles. My mom swears by it now for washing linens/other things. She also washes the dog’s toys in it – cleans them right up, plus there isn’t a chemical residue on it.

    I love Dr. Bronner’s. I buy the gallon size of baby mild unscented. I dilute it 1 part soap to 3 parts water. You can use in the shower as face and body wash. I also use it as liquid hand soap.
