2019, a new year full of hopes and dreams. What are your goals or things you look forward to this year?
One of mine is to work extra hard at living an eco-conscious, budget-friendly lifestyle. One way I've been doing that over the past 6 months or so, is by adding good, earth friendly products into my life. Dr. Bronner's soap fits that category perfectly, as it does a lot and replaces things I don't really need like special facial cleansers, hand soap, body wash, shaving cream and anything else the multi-billion dollar marketing companies try to convince us we need. Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap is perfect for a lot of things. Men & women use it and love how universal it is for the home and everyday life. If you haven't heard of it or do not know much about it, keep reading.

3) hands and hair

"Dr. Bronner's was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third- generation master soapmaker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family." - Dr. Bronner's website. With 150 years and 5 generations of soapmaking, they know what they're doing.

So, if you didn't know already, Dr. Bronner's soap lasts FOREVER! Because of the quality and effectiveness of the product, it only takes a teeny, tiny drop depending on what you're using it for. Just think of the money you'll save!
Excellent Brush/Sponge Cleaner
There has only been one true, wonderful product I've loved to clean my brushes with: Young Coconut Milk Brush & Sponge Cleaner from LimeLife by Alcone (original formula from the London Brush Company). It would be the ONLY cleaner I would use to clean my brushes. And if it wasn't out of my price range, I'd still be using it. However after much research on earth friendly brands, I decided to try Dr. Bronner's unscented liquid soap just to see how it works as a brush cleaner. The same exact beautiful quick, clean and smooth results but far less expensive! Not only are my brushes being cleaned quickly, but this soap leaves them feeling soft and fresh! Cleaning with baby soap or other soaps, can leave brushes feeling dry takes their fluffliness out. Professional brush cleaners my at times be too overpriced and not worth the unnecessary expense.
If you have allergies or sensitive skin, you may want to try the unscented baby one (it's the one with the baby blue label).
Using tips: For now, I've learned that taking 1 tiny drop for every big brush and lathering it up cleans them quite well. You may want to use warm to almost hot water.
So I've tried to keep this post easy to read, informative & to the point as possible. I hope it was helpful. It's scary to think that maybe the soaps we use to clean with aren't so clean after all...
Thanks for reading,
