Dr. Bronners Magic Soap

Saturday, 3 May 2014

I'm the kind of girl who would clean my brushes with any old soap. Recently though, I began to feel they weren't getting as deep a clean as I would of liked. I noticed the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in my local health food store and decided to give it a go, to see if could work it's magic on my very dirty brushes.

This soap is kind of quirky. It comes in several scents including eucalyptus and orange. Personally went with the hemp peppermint, which smells delicious. The bottle has random religious, political and literary quotes etched on which are quite entertaining to read. This soap, perhaps is most famously known for it's numerous uses, 18 to be exact, such as washing dishes, hand soap and a plethora of other things along with being fair trade, organic, vegan and all of those lovely things.

I, primarily bought this soap to clean my brushes. I simply placed a small drop in the palm of my hand, swirled the brush round and rinsed the brush. The soap doesn't foam like a traditional soap so I found it quite difficult to get it on every bristle of my brushes and give a real deep clean. It did leave my brushes clean after a good scrub but I just felt it was more effort than I am used to. Also the scent is really strong. My brushes smelled for days after and I found it quite unpleasant.

After, hearing a bit of hype around this soap as a brush cleaner, I must say I am a little disappointed with the results. It's quite expensive for a soap, it is more time consuming and does a worse job than a simple, inexpensive baby soap or mild soap would do. I think I will be sticking with just regular old soap instead for cleaning my brushes but at least this stuff has 17 other uses, right?
