Castile Liquid Soap is a safe, nontoxic, green, multi-purpose, multi-surface concentrate that is made with organic plant oils for your safety and for the safety of our planet. Cleans ALL water-safe surfaces.
The word castile is a reference to La Castilla – a region in central Spain historically significant in the history of soapmaking. In America, castile means any soap made with olive oil, often a liquid soap made from coconut and olive. Always check your ingredients – some companies add synthetic chemicals to their so called castile soap!
You’ve heard it all before: bracing, refreshing, uplifting. Look for a broader profile here, beyond the twangy one note of less complex blends.
Ingredients: Saponified Organic Oils (Coconut, Olive and Jojoba), Peppermint Essential Oil, Cornmint Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Rosemary Extract, Ceaderwood Essential Oil, Organic Aloe Vera
HANDS and BODY: Use full strength or dilute up to 50%
DISHES: Saturate applicator with full strength castile soap and scrub. Add more as needed. Always soak tough stuff in soap and hot water first to loosen debris. Use some castile soap in your wash water, but utilize a soapy sponge or scrubber to do the bulk of the cleaning.
FLOORS: Add 3oz (6 tbsps) of Castile Liquid Soap to mop water. Clean as usual, and allow to dry.
WALLS & WOODWORK: Dilute 1/4 cup per 1 gallon of hot water. Clean, rinse and let dry.
LAUNDRY: Use about 1/3 cup per load – a little more for hard water. Castile Liquid Soap may be neutralized by detergent residues in the machine so use enough to get the barest start of foam on top. You may have to use a little extra the first time. Best to mix into warm water before adding the clothes. Great for hand-washing most silks and fine fabrics, wool and suede (may darken). Bleach compatible.
STAIN REMOVAL: Safe and effective. Wet surface and apply full strength. Work into the material from several directions and let sit a moment. Blot stain with cloth or towel and rinse.
CARPETS: Replaces detergent concentrates. Works well in all carpet cleaning machines and on stains.
GENERAL CLEANING: Fill a clean spray bottle with warm water, add 5% of concentrate, then spray & wipe. Great for ALL watersafe surfaces. Help eliminate new plastic smell. Safe and nontoxic for humans, plants & pets.
BATHROOMS: Use full strength on sponge and rinse. For all porcelain and tile surfaces.
VEHICLES: Saturate sponge with Castile Liquid Soap. Work over vehicle in sections, wetting first, scrubbing and then rinsing. Always wash vehicles out of direct sunlight. Will slightly darken most porous materials. Test on a small inconspicuous area prior to use.
