5 Great Uses of Castile Liquid Soap

Reusable Cleaning Wipes

While we love the idea and the convenience of disinfecting wipes, we hate the waste and the chemicals used. That’s why we like to make our own! Here’s how:

  1. Mix 1 cup water and 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) of your favorite Castile Liquid Soap in a quart mason jar. Try Peppermint Magic, Lemongrass Zen or Sweet Orange for kitchen wipes; Country Lavender, Tea Tree or Pine Woods for bathroom wipes! Always add soap to water, not the other way around.
  2. For the wipes, either buy some cotton dishcloths or use an old t-shirt cut into wipe-sized pieces.
  3. Place 8-10 wipes in the jar and secure the lid.
  4. Turn the jar upside-down a couple of times to soak the rags.
  5. You’re all set! Take a rag out whenever you need to clean up your counter space and simply toss the used wipe into your laundry.

Tub Scrub

Say goodbye to all of those nasty bathtub cleaners!

  1. Place ½ cup of Tea Tree or Country Lavender Castile Liquid Soap (best options for natural disinfection!) into a medium sized bowl. Slowly add up to 1½ cups baking soda and mix until the consistency of cake frosting.
  2. Keep in an airtight 3-cup jar or repurposed squeeze bottle and get to scrubbing!
    *Make sure to rinse your tub thoroughly afterwards. Also works well in sinks and on faucets. If the mixture starts to dry out, add a little water and stir it in to bring your tub scrub back to life.

Carpet Cleaner

You don’t need to turn to harsh chemical cleaners to remove tough carpet stains.

  1. Place ¼ cup of your favorite Castile Liquid Soap with 1 cup of water in a blender.
  2. Mix until a stiff foam is created.
  3. Place mixture on the stain and scrub with a good brush.
  4. Wet a towel and wipe the area to remove as much of the soap and dirt as possible.
  5. Repeat as needed.

Shaving Soap

Commercial shaving creams are just the worst. For smooth, happy skin use this instead!

  1. ¼ cup of your favorite Castile Liquid Soap
  2. 1 cup of water
  3. 2 Tablespoons of olive, sweet almond, or grapeseed oil (whichever you have on hand or prefer)
  4. Combine all ingredients and place into an empty foamer bottle (we sell empty bottles and caps here).
  5. Enjoy soft, smooth skin!

Ant Repellent

If you’ve got ants in your home, your first instinct might be to reach for a can of pesticide to get rid of them. Stop right there! Grab an empty spray bottle and make your own ant repellent!

  1. Fill a clean spray bottle 95% of the way with warm water.
  2. Add the remaining 5% of the way with your favorite Castile Liquid Soap.
  3. Liberally spray wherever you’ve seen ants (or where you suspect they’re coming in) for several days in a row.
