cat_top_liqsoapWe will never plug a product on our site unless someone on our roster has used it and approved it, it’s the Pink Puck way. One product in particular has us happier than the opening of hockey season, well, almost, is Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lavender Pure Castile Liquid Soap. It’s a multi-purpose miracle, at least in terms of living the rink life.


Equipment Cleaner
3 tablespoons Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Liquid Soap
2 cups water
Spray Bottle

Pour both ingredients into a spray bottle and shake. Lay out equipment, hockey bag, etc and spray with mixture, let air dry and voila, hockey stink gone. We’ve also sprayed this on the carpet in the trunk of the car where our equipment bag usually sits and let it air dry, it does wonders for the smell of your car interior.

Jersey and Sock Laundry Detergent
2-3 tablespoons (depending on load size) Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Liquid Soap 
2-3 tablespoons white vinegar

Use instead of laundry detergent on your jerseys, undergarments, jills, jocks and socks, pour the mixture in with your clothing and run the wash as normal. The mixture is a little less harsh on the wear and tear front than regular detergent and it does a number on sweat stains and smells!

Body Wash/Quick Body Cleaner
3 tablespoons Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Liquid Soap
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups water
Spray Bottle

Pour all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake. Give mixture a good shake before each use. We’ve all had those moments where you come off the ice, excited for a hot shower and you’re greeted with an arctic blast of water that doesn’t change temperature. Your shower time decreases to a quicker than quick rinse, it’s all about how fast you can get in and get out. Use the body wash for an after skate scrub down, the olive oil will help moisturize your skin while the soap will work its magic. For the days that the shower is completely broken or you just don’t have enough time (hey, it happens), the body wash mixture is perfect to spray on and towel off.

Makeup Remover
1 teaspoon Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Liquid Soap
1 1/2 teaspoons Olive Oil
1 cup Distilled water
Small pump bottle or similar container

Mix all ingredients in bottle, shake before use. Apply to a cotton ball and take off makeup, it even works on tough mascara and eye-liner. We’ve all had that moment where you’re running from a prior makeup necessary engagement, to the rink where makeup isn’t exactly preferable. Keep a little bottle of this in your bag and you’re good to go. We use it as a daily makeup remover away from the rink as well. It’s gentle and leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend trying the Dr.Bronner’s Baby Mild Version when it comes to makeup remover, but it’s not 100% necessary.


We love the lavender version of the product, but it’s important to note that any of the scents offered will work – Dr. Bronner’s features 7 other scents besides lavender. The 32 oz bottle retails from $10-15 depending on where you purchase it, but it’s certainly cost efficient, one bottle will last you months and months.
