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.

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

    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.

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

      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.

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

        I had a small bottle of this that I'd bought at a local store. My son used it, liked it, and asked me to buy another. I ordered the larger bottle and found that the formula seems a little more runny, though he continued to use it because he liked the scent.

        Now off to college, my son has been using other liquid soaps. When he returned for the holiday and used this, he said it left his skin itchy. Don't know if there's something in it that he's having a reaction to, but with so many other products available, we'll be switching.

                  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.
