Tip of the Day – Take a Dr. Bronner’s Bath

Posted on February 26, 2008 by Allie


I’m obsessed with Dr. Bronner’s Organic 18-in-1 Hemp Lavender Pure-Castile Soap. Over the past two weeks I’ve used Dr. Bronner’s to wash almost every surface of my house, and I still have half of my tiny 4 fluid ounce bottle left over. Just a few squirts in some warm water cuts dirt on kitchen floors, but it’s gentle enough for your skin too.

The bottle is crazy. Snippets of scripture and sentences that start out talking about one thing and end up talking about something completely different. There’s text on every inch of the label.

One of the blocks of text includes instructions for a water saving sink bath.

“For facial packs, scalp & soothing body rub, add dash on bath towel in sink of hot water. Wring out. Lay over face & scalp. Massage with fingertips. Repeat 3 or 4 times ’til arms, legs & all are rubbed, always toward the heart. Rinse towel in plain hot water and massage again. Breathe deeply! Health is Wealth. Within 9 minutes you feel fresh and clean, saving 90% of your hot water & soap. . .”

Give it a try the next time you need to freshen up. Save water and soap!

  4. [...] Dr. Bronner’s Soap – I brought a bottle of lavender soap with us, and it was such a great pick me up in the shower, washing off a day’s worth of hiking dirt and sweat, leaving me squeaky clean and smelling like a girl again.  Doe Bay uses Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint soap too– it’s everywhere!  They keep it in the kind of clear plastic squirt bottles used in restaurants for ketchup and mustard, and it’s in every bathroom and shower on the property.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
