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.

The thin consistency of Dr. Bronner's always drives me a little nuts, but I keep buying it because I like the pleasant smell and gentle tingle.

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

      Son was required to use Dr. Bronner's Castile Peppermint Soap on a 3-month field trip. It was used for EVERYTHING. So, I thought I'd try it - and I could not love it more! It lasts a long time because you dilute it. Once you are aware that it is runny when diluted, it should not present any problems. Great smell, too!

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

        I use this soap almost exclusively for hand washing. I just opened a new bottle, and it seems a bit watery. Since I don't have an old bottle to compare it to, I can't say for sure, but I hope the company isn't going to start thinning it out. I have been refilling my old Mary Kay handsoap containers with this soap and some water for years and love how thick the soap is. The pumps on the containers are the kind that make the soap foam. Every now and then the pumps clog. I don't remember that happening with the Mary Kay soap that was originally in the containers. It's a little bit of a pain to unclog them, but not a huge deal, but the company thinning it out would bother me. I hope that's not what's going on.

            This stuff is incredible. It serves a whole list of purposes, from face and body wash to rinsing produce, and it even works as shampoo in a pinch (though you WILL need conditioner afterwards). Plus, it's completely vegan and fair trade.

              I bought this because I decided to go with more natural soaps. This stuff is so thin (watered down-like) it won't even stay on the sponge. Therefore I am wasting it using more & more product. Never again. Will go back to thick, rich Method Dish Soaps.

                I'm new to this brand and I meant to buy the almond soap instead I purchased the peppermint. I hate anything food wise that is peppermint and anything peppermint scented. I think I tried clicking 32 oz on almond and when it switched to peppermint (since there is no 32 oz almond at the moment) I didn't catch it. The smell is soooooooo strong, most scents for body washes on me get masked by my lotions, but not this one. It tingles so much, it's like washing your body with toothpaste. The smell bothers me, but not as much as the sensation. My body feels like it's freezing from the minty freshness and at the same time I feel like I'm sweating, it burns on some areas as well. I want to return it,but I can't. I thought I could make myself like it so I tried it out once thinking I could just return it if I don't. I'm so dumb I chose to read the return policy after I tried the product. :( I'm just going to give this to someone if anyone will take it and pick up a different scent at a local store.

                  I strictly use this as handsoap and with the type of pump that foams, this product lasts a long time. I thin it about 50/50 with water. Sometimes the pump clogs up, but it's easy to clean. I've tried it as a household cleaner, and it just works okay in my opinion.
