i received a most excellent gift from mm's aunt pat in nyc.
dr. woods pure peppermint castile soap.
"for everyday use as a body wash, facial cleanser, shampoo, shaving lather and dental wash. also excellent as a mild laundry detergent."
but wait! that's not all!
"natural cleaning - use 4 parts water to 1 part dr. woods for dishes, floors, counters and more!"
guess that just about covers it. plus it is organic. double bonus.
