Hi All -

In a constant search for frugality and better/safer items for my family - I want to get some Dr. Bronners - any suggestions on where to get the best price online? (I live in the country and do not have many resources like co-ops etc).

Also, how do YOU use Dr. Bronners -

Thanks -

Traci

Join a frontier coop and get Bonnors and several other products like this for wholesale price. I love the Sal suds. It takes me months to go thru one bottle of this and it can be used for soooo much!

Dr. Bronner's has a lot of different uses. I dilute it to make shampoo, baby wipes solution and in a pinch, in place of laundry soap in the washing machine.

My favorite use of Dr. Bronner's, is to take a bottle 3/4 full and fill with water to dilute it. Then I use this to clean out the bathtub before my boys jump in. If I don't get it rinsed thoroughly it is ok. The dr. bronner's is what they bathe with anyway.

This is so much better than my husbands method of using some harmful bathroom cleaner then rinsing and rinsing to make sure there is no residue left for the kids bath.

The best price I have ever found was actually at an Army Surplus store.

We get ours at VitamanShoppe for way cheaper than any of the local healthfood stores.

One of the ways I love using Dr. B's is for handsoap. I fill up an empty liquid soap container 90% or so with water, then squirt in some Dr. B's. It is just enough to make our hands pleasantly soapy when we wash up. My kids are pretty reckless with the liquid soap so this economical approach means that I don't give a second thought to how much they use or if they (occasionally) decide it is a good idea to take the top off and pour it down the drain.

I mix it with vinegar, water and borax to make household cleaner.

I get mine at TJs, but I haven't comparison shopped too much. I know you can also buy it by the gallon, I wonder if that is the most cost effective?

Frontier has the best price I have seen - under $30 for a gallon. My local HFS is $46.99!

Check Vitaglo.com too. They have free shipping if you buy over $50, and I've found their prices to be just a touch higher than Frontier, with no ship-to cost like there would be if you're in a co-op. I love the co-ops, but last time I bought some big packaged items and the ship-to-me cost totally negated all the Frontier savings :
