Uses for Liquid Castile Soap

These are the 18 top ways to use liquid castile soap. There are probably hundreds of ways to use this stuff but I stuck to 18. 

 


 

Body Uses:

Bath: Completely depends upon water amount, but roughly 2 Tbsp. soap in an average sized tub. (Doesn’t bubble, but still cleans).

Body: One small squirt on a wet washcloth, applied to a wet body.

Clearing Congestion: 1 Tbsp. in a bowl of steamy hot water. Breathe in mist with a towel draped over the head.

Face: 2-3 drops on wet hands, applied to wet face.

Foot Bath: 1 1/2 tsp. in a small tub of hot water.

Hair: 1/2 Tbsp. in your hand, worked into wet hair, or dilute ½ Tbsp. in ½ a cup of water and work that into wet hair.

Shaving: Face – 10 drops; Underarms – 3 drops; Legs – ½ tsp; Work to a lather in wet hands and then apply to area.

Teeth: 1 drop on a toothbrush. (Yes, it tastes like soap).

 


 

Household uses:

All-purpose cleaning: 1/4 cup soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Add ¼ tsp. tea tree essential oil if desired.

Dishes (handwashing): Pre-dilute 1:10 with water. Squirt on a scrub brush and scrub dishes.
