The folks here who bash the product obviously have not followed the instructions to dilute this soap to a fare-thee-well before using. It's not always easy to find the instructions hidden among the rantings on the label, but you need to Dilute, dilute, dilute! Ok! :-)

For hand soap, I use 1 Tablespoon of Peppermint Soap to 8 oz water in a foaming container. This one tablespoon of product lasts over a month in my house. My husband always uses the hand soap foam to remove his collar stains and any greasy stains on his clothing - Simply pretreat and wash as usual (with normal detergent, not Dr. Bronners) I use the hand soap concentration on a wrung out, wet cloth to clean walls and woodwork. Grime and fingerprints disappear and the room is left with a pleasant, light scent. The key to all of this is to dilute, dilute, dilute!

For bath or shower use, you still need to dilute, which leaves you with a very thin, watery, cleaner. To use it, you have to either get a foaming container or a spray bottle - just spritz, foam up with a washcloth, puff, or loofah, then rinse. If you have unpleasant tingly sensations or you can't rinse off easily, then you need to dilute the product even further.

I cannot claim the stuff works well as a shampoo, because I have long, fine hair. Dr. Bronner's leaves my hair a dried and tanged mess. But my husband has coarse short hair and loves using diluted Dr. Bronner's as a shampoo, he says it leaves his hair really clean.

At the strengths I'm writing about, you will use less than a penny's worth of soap to wash each day. No other cleaner can come close in terms of effectiveness or economy. Dr. Bronner may have had an "interesting" point of view as far as religion was concerned, but he sure knew how to make wonderful soap!

I just got this today at Trader Joe's. [$] for 32oz. This price is a total ripoff. I used it on my hands for a soap, but it dried them out. Only used 1 drop. But to be fair, I have dry skin and well water. Just about anything except goat's milk soap dries it out. I then used a little mixed with water to wash my hair. I have a filter on my showerhead, so this was a better test. I used it as a body wash, and my skin isn't as dry as my hands were. My hair felt soft while it was wet, so it seems good as a shampoo. I only used a tiny bit mixed with water. What got on my face has dried out my skin, but again, even plain hot water will do that to me.

        I use this to make my own foaming soap. Just dilute it with water and put it in a foaming soap dispenser. This is much more economical than purchasing individual foaming soaps from the store. A large bottle lasts a long time! I typically use 1/4 of soap to 3/4 water. Lathers great and smells terriffic!

        LONG TIME fan of Dr Bronners! I have used this as a teen in the 1970s. It used to be much more budget friendly, and yes the price here is a bit high.

        I use it in the shower, and I especially love it as a refreshing soap in the summer.

          Dr Bronner's bottle label makes interesting reading before showering. I've been using the good doctor's product for 20+ years and, while clean, I have yet to understand what he is trying to say on the label.

                  I love Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap! I know the label has a million uses -- in tiny, tiny print -- but it's great in the shower or bath. It's very refreshing! I have sensitive skin, and the soap is not drying. If you feel the peppermint is a little too intense, add a little water to the bottle. Not only would I recommend this product to a friend, I have done so many times before.

                    Comments about Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap, Peppermint, 32 fl oz:

                    I have used Dr Bronner's soap for 45 years! I discovered it in a local health food store (before health food stores were on every corner) and originally bought it because it is manufactured in a neighboring town. But I continue to buy it because I love its new fragrances (it was originally available only in eucalyptus), its convenience, its natural feel, its flexibility, and pretty much everything. If I get down to the last inch in the bottle, I mix it with a cup of water and it lasts for almost as long as the straight stuff. It's quite inexpensive when used as recommended--even overusing it as I do. If you haven't tried it, you're lucky--because there's a real treat coming when you do!
