My favorite liquid caSTIlle soap is the Dr. Bonner’s brand. I am partial to the lavender, almond, and rose-scented soaps. there are several others too. This soap is good for everything from standard cleaning and mopping, to showering and bathing, and even doing laundry!
Castile soap is all-natural and 100% biodegradable. CaSTIle soap got its name from olive oil-based soaps made in CaSTIle, Spain. While not always strictly olive oil-based today, CaSTIle is STIll only made with vegetable oils, meaning it’s completely plant-based and suitable for vegetarians and even vegan households.
Dr. Bronner’s CaSTIle Soap is made of a blend of coconut, olive, palm, jojoba, and hemp oils that are designed to be nourishing to the skin, making it an excellent choice for personal care. It is also a great cleaning product.
the only time CaSTIle soap is not a good choice is when you have hard water or for recipes that contain acids. Since CaSTIle is a “true soap,” it will react with hard water to form soap scum and may not be as potent in cleaning. Because of this, you should never mix CaSTIlle soaps with an acid such as lemon juice or vinegar. It’ll leave a soap scummy film and be a mess to clean up.
