Green Cleaning with Castile Soap

January 27, 2011

Castile soap is a plant-based soap that loosens grime and dirt from surfaces.  It is more gentle than soap, so it won’t dull surfaces.

Here are some ways you can use Castile soap:

Washing your car.  Mix ¼ cup liquid Castile soap with hot water in a bucket, filling the bucket almost to the top. Rub a generous amount of the solution on your car’s exterior, windshield, hubcaps, and tires with a large sponge, then thoroughly hose it off.

Clean your floors.  You can mop almost any type of floor with a solution of ¼ cup liquid Castile soap and 2 gallons warm water. If the floors are greasy, add ¼ cup distilled white vinegar to the bucket. For leather upholstery, add 2 drops liquid Castile soap to 1 quart warm water. Apply to the leather with a barely moist sponge.

Cleaning marble countertops. Stir 1 tablespoon liquid Castile soap into 1 quart warm water. Dampen a cloth with the solution and wipe surface. Rinse, then dry with a clean cloth.

Sinks, showers, tubs, and ceramic tile. Create a homemade soft scrubber by combining 1 tablespoon liquid Castile soap and 1/3 cup baking soda.

Stovetop and vent hood. Add a few squirts of liquid Castile soap to 2 cups hot water. Apply to the stovetop, the burners, and the vent hood to cut through accumulated grease.
