I’ve always used Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap in the shower. It’s 100% organic and smells great. Little did I know that you can use it to clean your whole house too. This client does. With a little dilution of the soap, you can clean:

Dishes (handwashing):  Pre-dilute 1:10 of Dr. Bronner’s with water. Squirt on a scrub brush and scrub dishes.

Laundry:  1/3-1/2 c. of Dr. Bronner’s soap for a large load in a normal washer. Add ½ c. vinegar to the rinse cycle. 

Mopping:  ½ c. of Dr. Bronner’s soap in 3 gallons of hot water.

All-purpose cleaning:  ¼ cup of Dr. Bronner’s soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Add ¼ tsp. tea tree essential oil if desired.

Windows:  1 Tbsp of Dr. Bronner’s soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Follow up with pure club soda, or half vinegar/ half water.

Toilet:  Predilute 1:4 of Dr. Bronner’s with water in a squirt bottle. Add ¼ 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.
