Body wash IS soap. Soap that hasn't been dehydrated and pressed into little compact bricks. So, for that matter, is dishwashing liquid. Okay, so maybe you just shove the dirty dishes into the dishwasher, and never really think about it, but you must have washed your hands in a public restroom before, so you know they make liquid soap, right? And yet you never noticed it was "liquidy and foamy from the get go"??

Just put a whole bar of soap into a into a large coffee mug and fill the mug halfway with boiling water, and wait a little while. You'll have "body wash" in no time. It's not rocket science, Sagg.

Yeah, and that's what you do with those little slivers of bar soap that are too small to be useful as is. Just save up a bunch of them and liquify them by soaking them in a little water.

Of course body wash is soap, DR, but I'm attempting to be facetiously funny because I'm in a goofy mood at the moment--and body wash is cool.  :P :2funny: :smitten: Besides, haven't you heard of this thing called humor? No offense, really, but sometimes to me you come off as being a tad too serious. Reminds me of Heath Ledger's Joker character: "Why are you so serious?"  :D  Chill.

No need to convince me of the advantages of liquid soap. Maybe it's because I haven't used the hard bar soap in... I don't know, 20 years? (Who knows, it's not like something I'd keep track of.) It's not like it's something even remotely new - it pre-dates the internet. Pretty hard to wrap my mind around the idea that this is some kind of new discovery or novelty for someone, like someone announcing that they've just discovered the existence of disposable lighters and can now stop using matches. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but it just comes off as sounding weird, man.

To me it's... just soap, a slightly more convenient variety than the other kind. Frankly, it amazes me more that there's still any market for the hard bar soap, or that anyone would see it as having any advantage over the liquid kind, although I guess you could say it doesn't need any sort of container or dispenser, so maybe more convenient for travel, and you don't need to worry about the container leaking.

Good point about Heath Ledger's Joker, though -- that was the most humorless version of that character yet.

I should probably mention (to save you having to discover this yourself) that "body wash" and "shampoo" are pretty much the same thing. And in a pinch, you can use either one ("foamy from the get-go") if you run out of shaving cream.  ;)

Archiecomicxfan215

I like body wash, especially the kind from Bath and Body Works.. so many










However they call it shower gel but same thing :smitten:

Body wash is okay, but I don't like to use them because I always finish them really fast. I guess I don't know how to use the right amount :P  So I prefer a good old bar soap. It lasts me longer.

You don't think that's anything but by design, do you? With liquid soap, everybody always winds up using more than they actually need to do the job. Liquid soap has been a boon to the soap industry that way, considering that the product is mostly composed of water by weight and volume.

BUT -- it's easier to use (thus easier to use more OF), and most people prefer convenience and ease-of-use over economy.

Wow, it's almost like lip gloss now, so many "fun" fragrances. Do they have Cotton Candy, Peppermint Stick, or Bubblegum?

No cotton candy or bubblegum but there is this

Myself, like many others I'm sure, enjoy reading the weird and/or nutty babbling on the labels of the various Dr. Bronner's soaps while relaxing in a hot bath.  :smitten:   My concern though comes from the "18-in-1" uses blurb on each bottle.  I only use the soap for five specific things as I recall, so evidently not getting the true value from each bottle.  Money down the drain so to speak.

I'm hoping there's a member here who fancies him or herself a "soap expert" and can enlighten me on all eighteen possible uses for this product.  Thank you in advance.

No real expertise required, Steve -- just about a minute to google it.

1. SHAVING
Dilute one part liquid castile soap to two parts of water and massage into skin as a shaving lubricant.

2. SHAMPOO
Wet hair thoroughly and massage a small amount of liquid castile soap into your hands until a lather forms. Wash hair and rinse well.

3. DENTAL CLEANING
Put a single drop on your toothbrush (almond, peppermint, and citrus are nice flavours to use) and brush and rinse as per usual. This is great for sensitive teeth and gums, and will also clean dentures effectively.

4. BODY WASH
Wet skin and massage a small amount onto a cloth, loofah or sponge then wash and exfoliate at the same time. You can also just apply directly to the skin - you only need a tiny amount!

5. HOT TOWEL MASSAGE
For facial packs, scalp and soothing body rub, add a dash of liquid castile soap on a bath towel in sink of hot water. Wring the towel out and place it over the face & scalp. Massage with your fingertips. Repeat on each area of the body until the arms, legs & entire body have been massaged (using light strokes towards the heart.) Rinse the towel in plain hot water and massage again. Breathe deeply! Choose whichever scent makes your heart sing.

6. BATHING
Add a squirt to a bath tub of water at the beginning for bubbles, or after the bath has been drawn for a relaxing soak without bubbles. Rose is a divine fragrance for this use.

7. DEODORANT
Add 1-2ml (0.05 fl oz) to a spray bottle of water (125ml/4.2 fl oz) along with a teaspoon of Himalayan crystal salt for best results. Rose, Citrus, Lavender or Tea Tree are effective - or just choose whichever scent appeals from the range of eight!

8. BREATH FRESHENER
One or two drops in a spray bottle containing 50-125ml (1.7-4.2 fl oz) of distilled water helps to keep the breath fresh and prevent unhealthy bacteria from thriving in the gums and between the teeth. Peppermint, tea-tree, eucalyptus or citrus are great choices.

9. MOUTH WASH
Add 1 drop to a shot glass of water, swish and rinse. Peppermint, tea-tree, eucalyptus or citrus are great choices.

10. BABY WASH
Add a drop or two to a wet washcloth, or a couple of drops to the bathwater. Baby Mild is ideal as it is completely natural and fragrance-free.

11. AFTER-SHAVE
One or two drops in a spray bottle containing 50-125ml (1.7-4.2 fl oz) of distilled water helps to invigorate the skin and prevent shaving rash. Peppermint, Eucalyptus, or Tea Tree work well, or Baby Mild for sensitive skins.

12. HAND SOAP
Dilute anywhere from 1 part castile soap to 4 parts water through to 1:1. You can also use the full strength soap with a foaming dispenser. Any scent is ideal for this application.

13. FOOT SOAK
Add a tablespoon (15ml/0.5 fl oz) to a foot bath and relax! Peppermint is a great choice for hard or cracked heels, or use Tea Tree if fungal infections are a concern.

14. LAUNDRY WASH
For the laundry, use 1/4 cup (62.5ml) for top-loading machines (1/8 cup for front loaders - 31.3ml); adjust as needed depending on hardness of water. Adding a dash of baking soda may also help. Great for nappy washing, as it is all natural and won't contribute to nappy-rash. Also delicate enough to use for hand wash items, such as silks and wool. Any scent works well, or unscented if you prefer.

15. PET WASH
Wet the coat of your pet thoroughly first then apply the liquid castile soap by massaging a small amount in your hands first until a lather is formed, then washing the hair/fur and rinsing clean afterwards. Can also be added to the wash water for ease of use (one squirt is plenty). Choose a stronger scent to help deter fleas and ticks, or Baby Mild if your pet has very sensitive skin.

16. FRUIT & VEGETABLE RINSE
Fill the sink with water and add a squirt of liquid castile soap to remove most chemical residues from fruit and vegetables. Baby Mild (unscented) is the best choice.

17. PEST SPRAY
Use 1-2 tablespoons/about 23ml per litre (0.7 fl oz per quart) of water in a spray bottle for garden pests (4-6 tablespoons per gallon). Citrus, Lavender, or Baby Mild work well.

18. HOUSEHOLD CLEANER
Dilute from one part soap into 40 parts water for light cleaning, to 1:1 or full strength for heavy-duty grease-dissolving jobs. Lavender, Citrus, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree work well - although Almond, Rose and Baby Mild are also great choices if you prefer those scents in your house (almond is a favourite around here - it smells just like marzipan!).
