What can you do with Liquid Castile Soap? What CAN’T you do? Our liquid Castile is 100% pure olive oil just like our bar soaps. Gentle. Mild. Can be used by people with sensitive skin, young skin, mature skin, dry skin, oily skin, doggie skin! Below is a list of uses for our liquid Castile, and I’m sure that many of you have your own uses too. Please feel free to comment and share!
Shampoo: To rid yourself of the detergent based shampoos and go more gentle with your mane, mix castile soap with water at a ratio of 1:3.
Laundry Detergent: Treat your clothes as gently as you clean your skin (after all, you’re wearing them right next to each other!)
Tub Scrub: Make “soft scrub” by adding baking soda to the Castile soap. Fill a spray bottle with a dilution of 1:3 castile to water. Sprinkle baking soda over the area you want to clean then spray the castile solution over the top. Scour with a sponge or scrub brush and watch the stains disappear. Great on tiles, toilets, sinks, everywhere you need a gentle scrub.
Mopping Solution: Use 2 or 3 tablespoons of castile soap in a full bucket of water.
Dishwashing Soap: Make a dishwashing soap by mixing a 1:1 ratio of castile to water.
Dishwasher Detergent: Make a paste of castile soap with baking soap and use in place of dishwasher tablets. Use white vinegar as a rinse and your dishes will sparkle!
Soap Dispenser Refill: Refill your foaming hand soap dispenser with 1:4 ratio of Castile to water.
Body Wash: What better use of Castile soap than as a gentle bath soap/body wash? Just dilute it in a 2:1 ratio of castile to water and use a body sponge or scrubbie.
Dog Shampoo: Make sure your dog is wet and then squeeze a couple of squirts of Peppermint Castile Soap and rub into your dogs fur until you have a nice lather. Then simply rinse off with warm water. Be sure to keep the soap out of their eyes and water out of their ears.
Toothpaste: You can actually use castile soap in place of your toothpaste, and pure soap is much better for your teeth than the nasty chemicals they put in most commercial pastes. Just add a few drops directly to your wet brush. It works wonders, although the flavor can take some getting used to!
Veggie Wash: Make a simple veggie wash for cleansing all your produce. Add 1 tablespoon castile soap to 2 cups of water, and keep the mixture in a squirt bottle near the kitchen sink.
Carpet Cleaner: Mix 1/4 cup castile and 1 cup water in a blender til it forms a stiff foam. Apply as you would any other carpet cleaning product.
Glass Cleaner: Mix half a cup of white vinegar, two teaspoons of liquid Castile soap and two cups of distilled warm water. Optionally, add a few drops of tea tree essential oil to the mixture. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, shake and spray onto your windows and clean with newspaper for a streak free finish.
All Purpose Cleaner: In a spray bottle, fill a quarter of the way up with white vinegar, add water to the top and then add a squirt of liquid Castile soap plus a few drops of tea tree essential oil, orange oil or lemon oil. Shake before use.
Face Wash: In a foaming dispenser, add one quarter cup of liquid Castile soap, fill to the top with distilled water (approx one cup) and add five drops of tea tree oil. The tea tree oil is great for acne prone skin.
