I bought a small bottle of Dr Bronner's to use in my soap pump, I am very unimpressed with it. At the time, I DID think I was purchasing a Castile soap (I have been the wiser for a while!) but, the next issue I have with it, is it does seem to go off in the pump. I'm using the lavender scented one & if I fill up the pump fully, I have to throw about half a bottle out because it smells bad before it gets used up. Its a foaming pump thing so you only use a small amount of soap & alot of water. So, I have been only filling the container half full (it's pretty small, only 6 oz - 5 oz water to 1 of soap for a full bottle), which works better. Regardless, when I finally do run out, I'll be looking for another soap to use. The one thing I do like about the Bronner's is that it's very thin, like water, rather than syrupy like alot of (commercial) liquid soaps. But, that's not enough to keep me coming back, especially since it is, imo, completely false advertising to call it "Castile". I have not tried to make my own liquid soap & at this point in time I have no desire. I'm still learning soooo much about soap bars lol.
