But I thought Dr. Bronner's was the best thing ever! →
[More:]So for years I've been hearing how Dr. Bronner's soap is the best. It's environmentally friendly, it's free from cancer-causing additives, it'll wash your body and your hair and your dishes and your laundry and take out the trash too! And yet, in this AskMe, everyone admonishes the OP, saying it's way too harsh.
So what's the deal with that? And what other highly-lauded products should actually be avoided?
