Dr Bronner's Magic Soap

Having read so many praises about Dr Bronner’s, I finally managed to get my hands on some of the bar soaps and a bottle of liquid soap. You can’t get it locally in Malaysia, you can either buy it from overseas website, or the nearest place to get is from Singapore.

Dr Bronner's Magic Soap Peppermint

Their organic soaps are known for their organic ingredients and multi purpose usage, literally from head to toe, dishes, pet, cleaning, laundry and etc.  So I picked up a bottle of liquid castille and bar soaps for experiment. The ingredients are straight forward, consist mainly of water and oil. No additional preservatives or  SLS.

I will break into few parts to tell you how I feel about them.

Bar Soap as Laundry Detergent:

DIY laundry detergent

Green laundry detergent is very big in some of the oversea countries, and unfortunately not so much locally. Mainly because the ingredients required to DIY are more expensive than buying those detergent itself.  After many readings & research, I found this easy recipe to DIY my own detergent with just 3 ingredients, without the Borax. I am only using baking soda, washing soda, and a bar of castile soap.


  • Arm & Hammer Pure baking soda – RM7 for 454g
  • Arm & Hammer Washing Soda – RM29 for 1kg (Acer Hardware)
  • Dr Bronner’s Castile Soap – SGD$8.20 per bar (140g)

The Whipped Cream for The Face – Speedy Perfect Whip

August 25, 2015

When I was in Japan, I picked up a couple of skincare products. I wasn’t particularly looking for anything in specific since I wasn’t in need for anything. However, I still managed to pick up the stash below which I thought wasn’t too bad. As you can see, it’s mostly cleansers and sunblocks. Just because […]
