If you've never used castile soap, you're missing out on one of the most versatile ingredients to have in your DIY arsenal.
You can use it in so many homemade cleaning recipes....anything from laundry soap, to surface cleaner, to you guessed it, cleaning wipes!
Today I want to share a super simple, and maybe one of my favorite ways to use castile soap. A natural, non-toxic cleaning wipe.
I started making these wipes as an alternative to store-bought wipes. I wanted to find a better, more environmentally-friendly option from those you find in the grocery aisle. I mean, who wants wipes loaded in chemicals that come in a plastic tub....not me!
Even if you're not into the whole natural cleaning thing, and that's totally okay, no judging here, you will love the fact that these cost only pennies and minutes to make!
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 ounce castile soap
- 5 drops essential oil, like peppermint (optional)
- old cut up t-shirt or rags
- glass jar with lid
Grab your glass jar and pour the warm water, castile soap and essential oil (if using) into it. Put the lid on and give it a good shake to mix. Add your cut up shirt or rags into the jar with the liquid. Replace the lid and turn the jar upside down a few times to get the liquid to soak into all the rags.
Using your new cleaning wipes
You can use these to clean up spills on your kitchen and bathroom countertops, or to wipe and freshen them up!
Set the used cloths aside until you've used them all, then just toss in the laundry to wash, and make them again.
