I finally got a bottle. What do you do with yours? I was thinking about using it to make some liquid hand soap for the kitchen and bathroom sinks.

I use it a lot to make foaming handsoap, I just put about an ounce or so in the foamer bottle and fill the rest with water.<br><br>
It also makes a great all purpose cleaner, put about 3 oz in a big spray bottle with a few drops of tto and fill the rest with water.<br><br>
MIx it with baking soda to make and awesome soft scrub.

I have used it to make foaming hand soap too. It will spurt out if you don't use a foaming dispenser. It usually clogs my dispenser too.. it still works, but it gets sticky and hard to press down. We use baby bronners in the shower as a bodywash. DH and DS wash their hair with it. We use Sal-suds for all purpose cleaning all over the house and to wash the car, etc...

I brush my teeth with the peppermint. Yes, it tastes quite awful, but I've gotten used to it and nothing makes my mouth feel cleaner. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I would like to know recipes, dilutions, etc. for Dr.Bronners too. I have some, but just have never figured it out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I use it as an hand soap. My DP uses it in the shower but it dries my skin out like crazy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I cant imagine what it would do to my super curly hair.<br><br>
Its too soapy to use it as a laundry detergent (even very diluted) and all-purpose cleaner. It leaves a film. I would NEVER put it on hardwood floors either.<br><br>
Hand soap it is! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I put about 1/4 cup pep B mixed with some Aloe Gel and Vit E oil, add distilled water and put in foaming hand soap dispenser. I also use it as a body wash (similar ingredients as above) and to wash my face with the baby B. I haven't had much problem with drying out too much.

I find the peppermint is pretty drying on the hands and sometimes stings... do you find that with just plain???<br>
I didn't think it was drying?<br><br>
I've used it very diluted on our hard wood floors. Believe me they won't get 'mopped' enough to ever get any sort of film- but I've heard others not be concerned about that.<br><br>

I prefer vinegar and water on hardwoods - something that is not soapy. I only "mop" (on my hands and knees) once a month, sweep and spot clean with a spray bottle of V & W in the kitchen any other times.<br><br>
I have tried all of the Dr. B soaps on my skin. It just doesn't like me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
