DILUTE! DILUTE! OK!

For everyday body-washing: Get wet and pour several drops of soap full-strength onto hands-washcloth-loofah. Lather up, scrub down, rinse off, and tingle fresh and clean. oooo. now i'm all excited.
I wonder if his incredible strings of hyphenated words are a symptom of his German background - what with the German language's tendency to mash multiple words together (
, etc.). "Intolerant parasites, in order to eat, must dominate-dic1ate-distort-dilute-destroy- smear-slay-slander-cheat or they won't eat!" Great post, goetter.
Say what you want, but this guy's soap ROCKS! I wuv u doktor bronner.
Baby-Mild for me /squeal_giggle
I have no idea what any of this could possibly mean, but the title reminds me of insane Japanese game shows, possibly involving urinating into enormous vats of powdered milk.
goetter; I'm so pleased you posted this, because Bronner's soap factory is located in my hometown of Escondido, California. The Almond soap positively ROCKS, and I've been using nothing else for years...
Wow, I wondered what
the Straight Dope
was about this.
I absolutely love the soap but it's usually far too early in the morning to do anything but quietly ponder the strange, strange writing.
MonkeyFilter: DILUTE! DILUTE! OK!
Damn, damn, damn. I was so hopeful this was my first comment, but no, it's from September '04. @#$%. Anyway, some of the folks engaged in
this current discussion
may wish to bathe in Dr. Bronner's heavenly soaps after the discussion. *hikes on*
I wonder what the athiest soap products would have on the sides of them.
Beautiful blank paper, just waiting to have a poem written on it?
To Cleanse the Skin Begin again My brain is thin with crud Another shower An early hour The power to soap with suds. Ok!
you have to love a soap that comes with birth control advice (and mentions Easter Island and Mark Spitz).
Dr Bronner's 18-in-1 is THE soap to take camping-- it's biodegradable, and you can indeed use it as dish detergent and (at a pinch) toothpaste. You can also wash your horse with it, if you have a dirty horse.
Also, when I was in 8th grade, 3 musician friends and I set various utterances from the Dr Bronner's soap label to the tune of "Hey Jude" and performed it at the school talent show. Boy am I glad to be posting this to an old thread where nobody will see it.
Ha! Ha! /Nelson ;)
I love Dr. Bronner's. Love love love. it.
Pallas Athena: Very nice. (: When I was in the 8th grade talent show my bandmates got a high school band to "crash" our set, and all of us changed from the approved 'mission impossible theme' to a song by the dead milkmen. Cheers to social ostracization!
Damn! Er.... cheers!
You can also wash your horse with it, if you have a dirty horse.
PA, and you are implying just WHAT with this comment?
the Noble Horse should she get dirty will kink her tail and still be purty
Er... nothing, BlueHorse! Really! Just, you know how horses are about having a nice roll in the dirt, and a spot of the good Doctor will leave them shiny and fresh-smelling. After which they will of course roll in the mud again, but what canya do? In no way did I wish to impugn the moral character of the Noble Horse, who, as Bees so feelingly states, is a beautiful creature with a high esteem for family values. Any horses offended by my words may apply to me for compensation in the form of a free apple, or carrot (if preferred). I trust this will satisfy all parties.

Pallas Athena, I KNEW you in 8th grade, and somehow still missed the Dr. Bronner's performance! Damn, woman, what ELSE are you hiding? And are there pictures?
She's right about the camping trips... we all used the stuff on our school outings. Just watch out it doesn't blow up in your backpack. I still have a sort of Proustian reaction to the smell of peppermint Dr. Bronner's-- brings back wet wool, iodined water disguised with generic Tang, and the taste of fifteen seventh-graders trying to cook dinner on a camp stove.
