    Default Holy mother, Dr. Bronner blinded me

    I don't know how many of you use Dr. Bronner's liquid peppermint oil soap, but a word to the wise: don't get this stuff in your eyes. Two days ago a drop of it splashed out of my palm and into my right eye, and it felt like a car battery had exploded in my face. Holy schnikes! The bottle says to rinse your eyes for fifteen minutes. Oh yes. Good soap, excellent torture tool.

    I love that stuff. It is the perfect soap for those morning when it is especially difficult to get motivated. That will get you going.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. It is great soap but it does do that to the eyes. I learned that early on as well.

    Dilute!Dilute!Dilute! Watched a PBS special on the good doctor, bit of a nutbar, but the soaps, they are good.

    Heh. I get my hands wet and put about one drop in my hands and wind up with more lather than I could possibly use.

    Dr. Bronner's soaps are indeed interesting. I buy the peppermint soap by the gallon and split in amongst my kitchen, shower, laundry and misc. cleaning products. The soap actually does a pretty good job with dishes and leaves a nice scent when you add a bit to the washing machine.

    Sometimes I feel a little strange using the same soap for my body, face, dishes and toilet...but I'm starting to get over it.

    Anyone remember the old SNL skit about "Shimmer?" Its a floor polish and a dessert topping!
