Many people are not aware of what castile soap is, let alone its versatility and infinite uses. MamaSuds Castile Soap is true liquid castile soap, which means the only fat we use to make our soap is olive oil. MamaSuds Castile Soap is gentle enough to use on your family but powerful enough for cleaning ANYTHING around the house... From babies to toilets! 100% vegan, not tested on animals and made with pure olive oil, water, and lye.
Here are uses and recipes to use MamaSuds Castile Soap:
All-purpose Spray Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with 2-3 ounces of MamaSuds Castile Soap, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, then fill your spray bottle up with warm water, and shake vigorously. This is great for cleaning counters, walls, bathtubs, sinks, and even carpet spots. I even use it on my micro-fiber couch.
Baby Wipe Solution: Using an old wipe container, I fill the container one-third to one-half of the way with warm water, one squirt of MamaSuds Castile Soap, close the lid and shake gently to mix. I love adding lavender essential oil for the perfect baby bum wipe!
Bathing: Put an ounce of MamaSuds Castile Soap in the bathtub to bathe yourself, child, baby or pet- it’s the only soap you’ll need! Or squirt a tiny amount (or dilute your batch) on a poof/loofah. Be sure to keep it out of eyes, it is not tear-free! Flush eyes well if it gets in eyes. Compare us to any other name brand castile soap... you will not be disappointed!
Dishwashing Soap: put an ounce of MamaSuds Castile Soap in the sink with hot water and hand-wash dishes. You can also use the All-purpose Spray Cleaner (above) on your dishes, wipe and wash. Remember real soap dissolves grease and grime and dirt so it will look and feel different than commercial dishwashing liquid.
Floor Cleaner: put a few ounces in the reservoir of your steam cleaner or bucket and wash!
Fruit/Veggie Wash: spray your fruit and veggies with the All-purpose Spray Cleaner and rinse.
Hand washing: Fill your glass hand wash bottle with MamaSuds Castile Soap. If you have a foaming hand soap bottle, you can fill it 2-3 ounces of soap and the rest water (assuming you have an 8-ounce bottle). If the watery texture is a problem, add some glycerin for that luxurious feel. For very soiled hands (grease for example), spray MamaSuds Castile Soap directly on your hands and scrub- watch the grime dissolve!
Toilet: Squirt a tablespoon of MamaSuds Castile Soap in the toilet with a sprinkle of baking soda or Extra Strength Oxygen Powder and scrub with your toilet brush. Flush! Check out MamaSuds Toilet Bombs too! castile soap uses
Scrub/Scouring Paste: great for a soft scrub on the stove or floors- one squirt of MamaSuds Castile Soap and baking soda. Use water to thin out if needed.
Tough Stain Spot Cleaner: put a few drops on your mystery stains, grease stains and all the stains you can never get out (wine, bananas, coffee, tomato, blood, etc)! Then throw in the wash. The quicker you get it on the stain the better but it works great on stains already set. We've saved quite a few clothing items for our customers!
A great tip to make your MamaSuds Castile Soap last a long time is to put half of it in a separate container and dilute both with water. MamaSuds Castile Soap is highly concentrated!
