6 Whip up your own doggy shampoo.

The store-bought brands can be wayy too pricey and are often loaded with questionable ingredients. That's why we're in favor of using this version on our pups, which simply combines natural baby soap, apple cider vinegar, and hot water. Shake it up, put it in a squirt bottle, and voilà!

7 Use as your daily face scrub.

Don't wear makeup? You can still use it to wash your face on the reg. If we're being honest, we were skeptical about the idea too, but if you tend to have sensitive, dry skin, switching to hypoallergenic baby shampoo really can do the trick. Not only is it way—and we mean way—cheaper than most facial cleansers out there (cough, 10 versus five bucks), but it's super gentle on your skin and won't leave it flaky afterwards. Cheap and effective? Sign us up, please.
