Help me use Dr. Bronner's!
 
I found a 32oz bottle of Dr. Bronner's peppermint castile liquid soap on sale today for $9.99. I have wanted to try it, and that seemed like a great price, so I picked up a bottle...now...what to do with it?
I would love to hear your recipes!

I love that stuff. I just squirt a little on a rag, wet the rag and wipe stuff down, put a bit in a spray bottle, fill with water and use to clean. Or in a bucket for mopping with a drop or two of tea tree oil. Curious to know if there are other ways to use it.... LOVE the way it smells :) It's my favorite cleaner

If you need hand soap, you can put about an inch in the bottom of a foaming soap pump and fill the rest with water. Works great!

Sounds easy!
About how much do you need for mopping? That is going on my to-do list for sure this week!

Yep that's what I do, and kids love the foam to wash their hands:)

We use it for all personal and household cleaning uses. Shampoo, face wash, body wash, hand soap, all-purpose cleaning spray, mopping, etc.

The peppermint soap does not disinfect but you can put a few drops of tea tree oil or lavender oil in it. I almost always get the tea tree oil or lavender soaps so they disinfect and I don't have to add anything to them.

Love this idea, thank you. To use it as dish soap, what ratio of Dr. Bronner's to water would you recommend?

I love Dr. Bronner's but have only ever used it in the shower. I'm definitively going to try some other uses now :)

I make laundry soap out of the Dr.Bronners bar soaps, I bet the liquid soap would work just as well!
