Castile soap is one of my greatest green and natural loves. It is made from plant-based oils and free of artificial foaming agents, harsh cleansers and detergents, petrochemicals, and anti-bacterial agents like triclosan.
I use castile soap as the base for almost all of my homemade natural cleaning recipes because it is so effective. And don’t be put off by the price of a bottle! Castile soap is concentrated, so a little goes a long way, making it very budget-friendly!
Because it has so many different uses all around the house, you can replace multiple different products with this one versatile soap.

Combine 1/4 cup of castile soap with 2 gallons of hot water in a bucket. Add essential oils according to your preference – lemon, lavender, peppermint, or eucalyptus are great ones to try. You can mop just about any type of floor with this solution.
5. Replace Dusting Spray
Fill a spray bottle most of the way with water and add about 1 Tbsp castile soap and 10 drops of lemon essential oil to the bottle. Shake gently to combine. Spray directly onto a microfiber cleaning cloth and use to dust and wipe down surfaces around your house. Also check out my experience with two different homemade dusting spray recipes.
