My family understands me. That’s why I got soap for Christmas. Dr. Bromner’s All-One soap. I was quite pleased with the gift. It was even wrapped in a brand-new homemade knitted dishcloth. Love that! I unwrapped the first bar and placed it by my sink. Then I noticed it had the words All-One stamped into the bar. My brain clicked on. Maybe these weren’t just any bars of soap. That’s when Google came into play. Turns out Dr. Bromner was a very interesting man. The label pictured above has some interesting uses for the product and life philosophies. If you magnify it you might be shocked!! He did many things besides making soap including abandonding his kids and being put in an insane asylum. He also claimed his soap had 18 different uses. Now that he has passed away, his family has taken some of the “uses” off of their packages. I guess they don’t want to be sued or something.
I tried out 4 different uses for the Dr. Bromner’s bar soap:
1. Bubble Bath – When I ran the warm water directly on the bar my bath water got nice and bubbly quickly. The bubbles didn’t last the whole bath but I liked the creaminess of the bath water color and it made my skin feel soft. I would recommend trying the liquid castile soap as bubble bath if you have that kicking around (I do so I assume everyone does, right?).
2. Bath/Facial Soap – I used the soap to clean my entire body including my face. It removed my makeup well and left everything feeling moisturized.
3. Shaving cream – It’s gave me a much smoother shave than regular soap. No dryness or irritation. I still have at least a years worth (1 bar) of my old-fashioned shaving bar but it’s good to know that there’s a good alternative.
4. Shampoo – It lathers up nicely. I “shampooed” and rinsed twice. My hair feels clean. I like the results more than no-poo. No tangles. Lots of volume and my curls are bouncy.
This would be a great bar to take on a vacation.
I also have castile soap in liquid. Pretty sure it’s Dr. Bromner’s. I wrote a post about one use for it. Here it is https://stephaniegetsridofhercrap.wordpress.com/2012/07/20/my-uh-duh-moment/.
What do you use Dr. Bromner’s castile soap for?
p.s. the paper packaging is made from 100% post consumer waste recycled paper and I recycled it too.
There’s something wrong with a mother who washes out a measuring cup with soap and water after she’s only measured water in it.
Soap and water and common sense are the best disinfectants.
