3 Ways to Use Castile Soap in the Kitchen
By: Allison Kuhn
Castile soap is a wonderful, simple alternative to modern soaps. As an all-vegetable product, it is also a vegan-friendly! You may be surprised to learn about the ways this product can be used to keep your kitchen (the true center of the home) sparkling clean.
- Dishes…the downside of cooking at home! Never fear, a simple dishwashing solution will make the process a little simpler. To prepare, add one part castile soap to one part water. Bonus: this can double as liquid hand soap, so you only need one storage container.
- Ever heard of the 5-second rule? Well, even though we know that’s not exactly true, having squeaky clean floors helps to keep your kitchen’s food safety on par. Simply add 2-3 tablespoons castile soap into a bucket of water, then mop on!
- Clean hands are essential to safe food. Prefer foaming hand soap? No problem! Fill your foaming hand soap dispenser with one part castile soap to 4 parts water, and that’s it! Remember to wash your hands before and after food prep, and after coming into contact with any raw meat or seafood.
