For those looking for a more natural cleaning solution, liquid castile soap is the ideal option due to its ecological and versatile qualities.

Here are a few ideas for using liquid Castile soap in a variety of ways.

1. Hand soap: 

To refill your hand soap dispensers, dilute 5 tablespoons (75 mL) of Castile soap in 1 cup (250 mL) of water.

2. Body cleanser: 

Pour a few drops of soap directly onto a washcloth or sponge, or mix one part soap and two parts water in a bottle.

3. Dish soap: 

Pour a squirt of Castile soap directly into the sink - half as much as you'd put of a conventional washing-up liquid. Rinse dishes after washing.

4. Washing fruit and vegetables: 

Dilute 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of Castile soap in 2 cups (500 mL) of water; spray on fruits and vegetables, then rinse with water. For this use, prefer unscented Castile soap.

5. 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 the solution in a spray bottle. For tiles, bathtubs or toilets, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the surface to be cleaned, then spray the soap solution on top.

6. Floor cleaner: 

Dilute 2 or 3 tablespoons (30 or 45 mL) of soap in a bucket filled with warm water, then mop.

7. Laundry detergent: 

Pour 7 cups (2 L) of boiling water into an old detergent container, add ½ cup (125 mL) soap and 1/3 cup (80 mL) baking soda. You can also add 1/3 cup coarse salt to help clean stubborn stains and revive colors. Use ½ cup to 1 cup (125 to 250 mL) per load, depending on the desired concentration.
