Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Soap!

Here's the secret of a savvy Plastic Dieter: all-in-one type products.

Baking soda is a perfect example. Can be used as toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, face wash, household cleaner-- the list goes on! Baking soda in the morning, baking soda at night. I'm kind of against using baking soda to deodorize your fridge though.. think that one might be a scam.

And then there's Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Soap. I bought the Tea Tree Organic Bar Soap over the weekend. This bar of soap comes wrapped in paper and is inscribed with the words "magic" and "all-one." Check and check. We all need a little more magic in our lives, don't you think? And it has 18-in-1 uses! I think this applies more to Dr. Bronner's liquid soaps, but the uses include: washing your body, washing dishes, washing clothes, washing hair and washing teeth!

When you have a different product specially designed for every square inch of your body, you're being scammed. Some marketing genius made you believe you needed all these products, but as long as we live in a world with baking soda and magic soap, it's just not true!

I believe baking soda scraps away at your enamel and therefore shouldn't be used on teeth daily.
