Here are some ideas about the many uses of Castille liquid soap.
Hand soap: To reload your hand soap dispensers, dilute 5 tablespoons (75 ml) of Castille soap in 1 cup (250 ml) of water.
Bodywash: Pour a few drops directly onto a washcloth or sponge, or mix one part soap and two parts water in a bottle.
Dish soap: Pour a splash of Castille soap directly into the sink—half as much as you would put from a regular dishwashing liquid. Rinse dishes after washing.
Cleaning fruits and vegetables: Dilute 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of Castille soap in 2 cups (500 ml) of water, sprinkle the fruits and vegetables and then rinse with water. For this use, go with an unscented Castille soap.
All-purpose cleaner: For kitchen counters, dilute ½ cup (125 ml) in 4 cups (1 L) of water. For hard-to-clean surfaces, dilute ¾ cup (188 ml) of soap in the same amount of water. You can also put a solution in a sprayer. For tiles, bathtubs or toilets, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the surface to be cleaned and then spray the soap solution over it.
Floor cleaner: Dilute 2 or 3 tablespoons (30 ml or 45 ml) of soap in a bucket filled with hot water, then wipe with a sponge.
Laundry detergent: Pour 7 cups (2 L) of boiling water into an old detergent container and add ½ cup (125 ml) of soap and 1/3 cup (80 ml) of baking soda. You can also add 1/3 cup of coarse salt to help clean stubborn stains and revive colours. Use ½ cup to 1 cup (125 ml to 250 ml) per load, depending on the concentration you need.
