Castile Soap - Unscented Review

I love cleaning with things that do not have a ton of chemicals added!

I just got Castile Soap to review. Yep I'm using it to clean with! 

Castile Soap has been around so long. That's why I trust it so much. I've used the bar version to make my own laundry soap. It works!

TriNova's Castile Soap liquid form works as well. You do need to dilute it down with water to use it.

Last week I dropped my 1 cup measuring cup that had my sauce for my stir fry in it. It had turmeric in the sauce. I was worried our floor that Travis just put in not too long ago would be yellow for awhile. After picking up all the glass pieces we could see, I decided to try out the Castile Soap.

The Floor Cleaner: 

1/2 cup TriNova's Castile Soap, drops of peppermint essential oil to 3 gallons of mop water and cleaned the floor.

Bam it was clean!

I decided to try a recipe on the back of the TriNova's Castile Soap to see how well I'd like their All Purpose Cleaner:

1/4 cup soap added to 1 quart of water in a spray bottle. I added drops of lemon essential oil.

Bam it cleaned under and around my toilet really well! I want to point out that it's not sudsy. I wasn't making a mess to clean.

Other things you can try:
  • For Clean Dishes: 1:10 in hot water.
  • To Protect Plants: 1 Tbs soap in 1 quart of water with a dash of cayenne to discourage bugs. 
  • To Sterilize Fruits and Vegetables: 1 Tsp in a bowl of water to remove pesticides and residue. 
  • For Soft and Smooth Skin: One small squirt applied to a washcloth or wet hands. *I'll be using this when the boys go to their outdoor camp.
  • Use it as a natural glass cleaner. It will make your glassware, mirrors, and windows streak-free.
It really can be used to clean anything! I love that a little bit goes a long way! You get 32 ounces, but it's diluted down with water every time.

It's not very expensive: $34.97, but on sale for $17.97.

Have you used Castile Soap before?

I just bought a few bottles of castille soap at our Fresh Thyme store. I was going to look for some spring crafts that the girls to make with it. I like that the cleaner you made isn't sudsy. I will have to use mine to make some too!
