Castile Soap



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.

More Information:

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.
