You should take as short of a shower as possible so that our grands and greats will have it in their lifetime! I catch my water in a gallon jug so I don't waste it waiting for it to get cold. I use that to flush my toilet! I wish I could catch rainwater to use, that would really be great!

Of course the website has sponsors that support them! I ONLY use organic! You pay a little more but you use less of the product because they work so well! I only have to wash my hair once a week now! Using lye handmade soap is the best decision I EVER made in my early 20. When I have my grandkids strangers think they are MINE! It use to embarrass me but I've learned to embrace it!!!

LOL! I saw a few valid points here but #7 is a total crock. Are these good doctors getting kickbacks from the "major consumer companies (Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, etc.)" for pushing their chemical-laden detergents they refer to as "soap"? Sorry, Irish Spring, Dove, all that other crap found in the supermarket is not true soap. These products are actually detergents that strip oil from your skin, which allows the manufacturers to make even more money by selling you moisturizers to "fix" the problem. Personally, I use real soap, which by definition, is a combination of a natural fat (like lard or coconut oil) and a strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide. My simple lye soap does not dry my out skin because the glycerin is not removed. It has no harsh chemicals or perfumes that can cause itching, rashes, dry spots, or other skin irritation.
