Switching to Dr. Bronner's can help you save your wallet and the environment at the same time. (Not having to fill the cupboard under your sink with 18 different cleaners is just a bonus). Here are 3 of our favourite ways to use this eco-friendly soap in your home.

Let's dive in.


1. Dish & Hand Soap

Using Dr. Bronner's as a dish and hand soap eliminates the need for you to buy multiple soaps. Although there are specific ratios, using Dr. Bronner's to make your mixture allows you to adjust the potency of your blend so you can get it just the way you like.

This alternative for the run-of-the-mill chemical-filled soap you may currently use is perfect for both the bathroom and the kitchen. If you find the mixture to be a bit thinner than you're used to, try a foaming hand pump to give it some suds before you lather your hands or wash your dishes.

For this method, you can use the same ratio for both dish and hand soap. All you need to do is mix 1 part Dr. Bronner's to 10 parts water, pour it into your soap pump of choice and you're ready to go!


2. All-Purpose Cleaner

Switching to Dr. Bronner's for your all-purpose cleaner has a range of benefits. It's an all-purpose cleaner that truly is all-purpose. You can use it to clean general grime around the house, or even give your windows and mirrors a streak-free shine.

To make your all-purpose cleaner, simply mix 1 part Dr. Bronner's to 16 parts water. If you want an unscented version, you're all done and ready to get cleaning. You can add a few drops of lemon essential oil for a classic citrus smell or choose the essential oil of your choice! It's truly customizable.

Important Note: Please note that certain essential oils may not be right for you. Always read and follow the label and consult a healthcare professional for more information.


3. Laundry Soap

Considering your clothes are in direct contact with your skin more than anything else, it makes sense to be conscious about what's in the soap you wash them with. Luckily, when using Dr. Bronner's as your laundry soap of choice, you don't have to worry about your clothes being washed with chemicals you can't even pronounce. This way, you can feel good about what you wear every day.

This mixture may be used in your washing machine as a substitute for detergent. Plus, adding vinegar to the rinse cycle helps to get rid of any potential residue. In addition to this, you can use a smaller ratio when washing your clothes by hand.


How to Make Dr. Bronner's Laundry Soap

To make Dr. Bronner's laundry soap, put 1/3 cup soap into the detergent dispenser and 1/2 cup vinegar into the rinse cycle. It's that easy.
