Castile Soap


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I use Castile Soap (Dr. Bronner's) for cleaning up around the house. It works great, costs a lot less than all the other cleaners I used to use, and is chemical free.

You can get Dr. Bronner's at Target next to the Burt's Bees in the Beauty Section. Don't be scared off by the bottle, Dr. B was pretty out there but his soap is amazing.

    I have been using mables miracles for over a year and love her castile soap and the best thing about it is you can order it online and have it shipped right to your door! It is wonderful soap!

    My mother used to clean with castile soap when I was a kid. Everything seemed so pristine and clean! I use it now--just because Mom did! emoticon

    My Mom used Castile Soap, and I carry on with it too. Always leaves a fresh clean scent.

    While this is a good tip, I can't help but mention that everything is made out of chemicals. Even you.

    I have been trying to find something without chemicals in it for cleaning Thanks! emoticon

    This is something to look into. somewhere in the crevices in my mind it rings a bell. I'll have to find out if it's safe for septic systems. that's always a priority. thanks for the tip!

    What do you clean with it? I have been using cheap shampoo to clean my toilet, I figure it's all soap in the end.

    can you use it on floors? What is the ratio for cleaning? We have some at work and I would like to try it out. What else is it good to use it for. Thanks

    I use my hypo-allergenic shampoo for my clothes. I'll try the Bronner's. It costs less.

    I remember my Mom using this, thanks for the memories. I will go purchase & start to use this

    Sounds like something I would like to try. What all do you clean with it?

    I will have to check this out and check the store's for this product. I am allergic to most cleaners so this is a big help

    I will have to check out what I can find here. My husband likes to use bleach, but it is too strong for me, so I have to try to find something that will give same results, but easier on me.

    I have been Dr. Bronner products for some time now & really like them especially the Almond Liquid soap for showering. Lovely scent!
SUNNYDAYZ4ME 3/27/2010 10:54:00 PM

    Thanks for posting this...Im always looking for something a little less "harsh" to use around the house. I'll be looking for this the next time I get to town... emoticon
