Now, that's eighteen uses right there, but customers have told us over time about many more uses they have found for our soaps.
Face: 2-3 drops on wet hands, applied to wet face
Body: one small squirt on a wet washcloth, applied to a wet body
Hair: 2 Tbsp. in your hand, worked into wet hair, or dilute 2 Tbsp. in 2 a cup of water and work that into wet hair
Bath: Completely depends upon water amount, but roughly 2 Tbsp. soap in an average sized tub. (Doesn't bubble, but still cleans)
Shaving: Face 10 drops; Underarms 3 drops; Legs 2 tsp; Work to a lather in wet hands and then apply to area.
Teeth: 1 drop on a toothbrush. (Yes, it tastes like soap.)
Foot Bath: 1 tsp. in a small tub of hot water.
Clearing Congestion: 1 Tbsp. in a bowl of steamy hot water. Breathe in mist with a towel draped over the head.
Dishes (handwashing): Pre-dilute 1:10 with water. Squirt on a scrub brush and scrub dishes.
Laundry: 1/3-1/2 c. of soap for a large load in a normal washer. Add 1/2 c. vinegar to the rinse cycle.
Mopping: 2 c. of soap in 3 gallons of hot water
All-purpose cleaning: 2 c. soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Add 2 tsp. tea tree essential oil if desired.
Windows: 1 Tbsp. soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Follow up with pure club soda, or half vinegar/ half water.
Toilet: Pre dilute 1:4 with water in a squirt bottle. Add 2 tsp. tea tree oil. Empty toilet, squirt bowl thoroughly, sprinkle baking soda on the brush, scrub bowl, let sit 10 minutes, turn water on, flush.
Fruit and Veggie Rinse: 1 dash (approx.. 2 tsp.) in a bowl of water. Dunk produce and swish. Then rinse in clear water.
Dog washing: Amount varies widely depending on size, hair type and length, and overall dirtiness. I wet my dog thoroughly, then start to work in castile soap up and down their body until I have a good lather. Really massage it in down to the skin. Your dog will thank you for it.
