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!

Re: Help me use Dr. Bronner's!

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!
