It’s no secret that one of my absolute favorite green cleaning products is castile soap. I use it in everything from my homemade floor cleaner, to my homemade laundry detergent, and even as a body wash and hand soap! But besides the many uses I’ve found for this amazing soap, there are other reasons that this cleaner is at the very top of my green cleaning arsenal of products.

Castile soap is a vegetable oil-based soap, as opposed to being made from anima
l fats, and is one of the most environmentally-friendly soaps on the market today – especially since it’s an actual soap, and not a harsh detergent in disguise like most other “soaps.” It’s free of harsh, toxic chemicals and is completely biodegradable, meaning it won’t harm the waste stream!
Castile soap is my absolute favorite because it’s made from 100% certified organic ingredients (olive oil), and it is easy to add your own essential oils to obtain the flavor you want.
The soap claims “to do „everything” from body wash to toothpaste, but I’ve got my own list of my favorite ways to use this magical soap in my home:
  • Laundry Detergent – The soap says to use it straight (1/3 to 1/4 cup) in your dispenser, but if you make your own at home, you can stretch it even further!
  • Shampoo – Before I started using baking soda and vinegar to wash my hair and on days that I feel like I just need a good lather, I pour a small amount of soap into my palm, rub my hands together to work up a lather, then apply to my hair and shampoo as normal. For the hubby, I mix up a larger batch of 1 part soap to 3 parts water and store it in a squeeze bottle. Depending on your hair type, this may or may not work with your hair, so try it out and see. In some cases I add green clay powder, or a variety of essential oils.
  • Body Wash – I just put a little soap directly on my wet wash cloth, lather up, then rinse. I also like to keep a larger batch in a squeeze bottle with 2 parts soap and 1 part water for guests who may be staying over.
  • Veggie Wash – I keep a spray bottle next to my sink filled with 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of soap. When I’m just washing a couple pieces of fruits or vegetables, I spray it on, scrub them with my hands, then rinse.
  • Shaving Cream – I haven’t bought shaving cream in years and usually just use whatever body wash I have in the shower. Now I just use a couple drops of castile soap to create a nice, gentle lather before shaving. It leaves your skin so silky smooth!

Organic castile soap is completely biodegradable and vegetable-based, and made from certified organic oils.
Use this soap for :
Hand Soap: Fill up your foaming soap dispenser with 4 parts water and 1 part castile soap.
  • Body Wash: Squirt the soap directly on your wet sponge or wash cloth and lather your body, then rinse. Alternately, mix up a larger batch of 1 part water and 2 parts castile soap.
  • Shampoo: Pour a small amount into your hand, work into a lather, then apply to hair. You can also mix up a batch of 1 part castile to 3 parts water and keep in an old shampoo bottle. Rinse and condition either with your favorite conditioner or some vinegar diluted in water. 
  • Shaving Cream: Apply directly to skin for a smooth, silky shave.
  • Toothpaste: Apply a few drops to your wet toothbrush and brush as normal. (Keep a small bottle - 100 ml - only for this purpose : add one drop of essential oil of clove and marjory / and or peppermint). The taste will take some getting used to, but it’s much healthier than all the chemicals present in commercial toothpaste.
  • All-Purpose Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with mostly water and add a few tablespoons of castile soap to use as an all-purpose cleaner. You can also add some baking soda for extra scrubbing action.
  • Laundry Detergent: Use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup for a regular load.
  • All-Purpose Cleaning Scrub: Fill a spray bottle with 3 parts water and 1 part castile soap. Sprinkle baking soda on the area to be cleaned, then spray the castile solution over it, and scrub away with a brush or sponge. This works great for toilets, bathtubs, sinks, and stovetop messes.
  • Veggie Wash: Fill a spray bottle with 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon castile soap. Keep next to the sink to wash fruits and veggies quickly and easily.
  • Dog Shampoo: Use the same ratio as the body wash for an all-natural, chemical free dog shampoo.
