Instead of buying new hand soap pumps every time I run out of soap I purchase a sturdy-looking foaming hand soap pump and keep a jug of Dr Bronner's Magic Hemp Soap (liquid hemp-based castile soap) around. When the pump gets empty I just rinse it out then fill 1/3 of the way with the Bronner's and the rest of the way with water because it can be diluted quite a bit. It gets hands clean with irritating or drying them out and lasts a long time! The almond kind smells great, too!
Mix 3 oz in a spray bottle and 21 oz of water (24oz bottle) cleanaround the house with it - DO Not use too much - All in one, 100% Vegan (you can brush your teeth with it - yuck) wash the dog - Various Scents my favorites are Almond and Citrus $5.99 at organic store 8oz. (bottle is interesting)
Figure out your own formula - I started with 1oz as recommended on the bottle but I use it for everything, showers(let it sit - then re-saturate scrub with ScotchBrite, rinse, dry) , pretreat clothing, My Couch - test for color-fast, gentle scrub, let it set, gentle towle dry, repeat if necessary
I recycle the foaming soap dispensers from bath and body works. I use dr. bronner's castille soap in the old soap dispenser (THE FOAMING TYPE OF DISPENSER) and I dilute the soap with mostly water.... say 1 part soap and six parts water. This is a very economical soap and smells great.
No, this is not about losing weight. It is about losing germs.
