Packing for travel is all about efficiency. Whether clothing or toiletries, go for items that pack a double punch. Our favorite toiletry for easy travel? Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps. Touted as a soap with "18 different uses", the brand prides itself on its organic, fair trade and earth-friendly practices. With a wide range of uses, why pack multiple toiletries when just one may do?
Here are some uses for Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps during your next trip:
1 - Body Wash
As this product is primarily used as a body wash, this one is obvious. But don't approach it as you would a typical body wash. The trick is using only a few drops on a loofah or washcloth. A little goes a long way. And do not squeeze the bottle or you risk a deluge of product. Waste not, want not.
2 - Shampoo
Yes, you can even use it to wash your hair, although perhaps save this for when you're in a pinch. For anyone with unruly or tangle-prone hair (like me), you will still need to use a conditioner as well.
3 - Face Wash
With no detergents and organic ingredients such as coconut oil and olive oil, the product is gentle enough to use on your face. But again, do a patch test first as all skin reacts differently.
4 - Washing Clothes
While I likely wouldn't use this for my day-to-day laundry needs, this travel trick would come in handy when you need to desperately wash clothing. Just use a few drops in the bathroom sink for a quick hand wash.
Like any versatile product, some uses will be better than others for each person. The beauty of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap lies in its ability to provide such a wide range of uses depending on your immediate needs.
