Has anybody tried Dr Bronners...

Yep, I have, and love its multi-purposeness. It was also mentioned above in Post #8.

Has anybody tried Dr Bronners...  You can wash your hair, use it as soap, brush your teeth, wash dishes. I bet it can be used to shave too..
I have used it but am not a fan.  Baby shampoo or Camp suds will do all of that except tooth brushing and brushing teeth with Dr Bronners is pretty awful anyway.

I switched to lye soap a while back for shower, shampoo and shave. Works great and moisture skin. Try "Grandma's" at True Value Hardware

Any soap and water for me. And a super lightweight desposable razor lasts a week or more. What's YMMV?
May the wind be at your back!

YMMV = Your mileage may vary

I've never tried to brush my teeth with Dr Bronners either but it says so on the container which is funny to read when bored.   When used as soap, I tend to water it down as per the directions a bit as it does seem to dry my skin.

I'm a woman and I use hair conditioner to shave my legs while traveling or touring. My favorite is Garnier Fructis (look for the bright green bottle) and might be available in small travel sizes at discount or drug stores. It doesn't lather but it doesn't need to in order to do the job. It rinses off easier than sunscreen or oils (cheaper too). I have to use conditioner on my head after shampooing, so it does double duty. A combo shampoo/conditioner might work too. I find that conditioner is less drying and irritating than shampoo for shaving.

William's Shaving Soap(solid) is available in most large supermarkets . One half of a bar- size of a silver dollar- lasted me the whole transam.  Worked so well my wife preferred it to shave her legs.
