Ulog 166: Many Uses For Castile Soap

I've had some Castile soap on the homestead for the last few months and just haven't had a chance to put any of it to good use... that is... yet. Now that I am inside to do the chores for the winter months (we have snow falling outside as I type this post, I can put my focus onto the projects, ideas and tips I've been keeping track of in my homestead journal and notebook.


And one of those little tasks is to start using this Castile soap for its various uses around the home.

Some Of The Uses I Found I Want To Use Castile Soap For

  • Dish washing
  • Laundry (delicate garments- I'll be grating up the bar soap for this one)
  • As an all-purpose cleaner
  • Dog shampoo (our adult lab has very sensitive skin to other products)
  • As the cleaning agent in my homemade cleaning wipes
  • In bathroom to freshen up shower stall build up (as well as the toilet- we have hard water here)
  • For the dishwasher
  • I'll be using the liquid Castile soap when making new batches of my own homemade soap

I found a recipe on Dr Axe's website:

To create your own dishwasher soap, mix 8 ounces of Castile liquid soap with 1 cup of water, 3 teaspoons of lemon juice and 10 drops of lemon essential oil and shake gently

I have to be really careful with soap, especially the scented kind as I'm allergic to it

Love using castile soap @goldendawne :) It's definitely my go-to cleanser, not harsh on the skin during those dry winter months. I think you'll be pleased!

This is interesting! I have sensitive skin, it's been really hard to find the right one...
