Dr. Bronner’s All in One Magic Soap
Though most often travelers find themselves in accommodations that provide some source of soap, I don’t think anyone realizes its invaluable nature till there isn’t any. Luckily for us, we discovered Dr. Bronner’s Magic All in One Liquid Soap and had the insight to make it a Traveling Miss Essential.
Not knowing how easy soap would be to come by in Africa, we brought this “18 in 1″ soap to Tanzania and I don’t know how we would have lived without it. We used it as our hand soap, shampoo, bodywash, laundry detergent, toothpaste, stinky-little-kid-cleaner; we washed dishes and even went so far as to use it as a toilet bowl disinfectant…now if you could just drink the stuff when you are thirsty it would be perfect. While even the packaging is reminescent of the “health elixirs” of the vintage classics Sears, Roebuck Catalogue, this is without a doubt a must have.
One small thing to note: the peppermint tingles, so be careful round the privys…
