You know it’s awesome
I don’t need to tell you that this is reliable choice for good quality, all natural Castile soap, but seriously in case you’re not sure why it’s quite so popular, here’s what’s so terrific about Dr. Bronner’s:
- Great on everything from showers to dishes
- It’s Fair-Trade, which means that workers are not exploited
- It’s 100% all natural and organic
- Contains not an ounce of degreasing agent or any other harmful chemical
- It’s super concentrated
- The essential oil scents are delicious
I could say a whole lot more about this integrity based company, but the bottom line is that this soap is completely toxin free, effective, versatile and good for the planet.
There have been times when I was using it to wash my dishes, my hair and my body too. No, not all at once! Although in the end I did prefer shampoo on my hair (Castile soap is too astringent and promotes greasiness) and have come to love other hard soaps for my face and body. If you’re a minimalist you could literally just buy this single product for every soapy need. My husband still swears buy it.
This is the only dish-washing liquid I recommend whole heartedly
All other dish washing products that I’ve seen contain so-called natural degreasing agents sourced from coconut or other organic sources, but that doesn’t make them ok to come in contact with your skin. I steer clear and feel safe with my Bronner’s.
You may think to yourself that this would be an expensive choice for dish soap, after all an 8 oz bottle runs $7 to $9 depending on where you get it. But if you haven’t tried it, what you’re missing is that this stuff is super concentrated! A 32 oz bottle (about $13 from Amazon) diluted and used as dish washing liquid, hand soap, bath soap and occasional pet bath lasts about two months or more.
Mixing 1 part soap to 2 parts water will lather nearly as well as undiluted. This ratio works well for the bath, dish washing or most any other purpose.
