Use This Instead: Liquid Castile Soap

This plant based soap efficiently loosens grime and dirt from surfaces without dulling thm.

Mix 1/4 cup with hot water in a bucket and use the solution to clean your car.  Clean exterior, windshield, hubcaps and tires with a large sponge then hose off.  Same solution can also be used to clean just about any type of flooring.  For extra greasy floors, add 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar to the solution.

Two drops of liquid Castile soap added to one quart warm water can be applied to leather upholstery with a barely moist sponge for cleaning.

Add 1 tablespoon to one quart warm water to clean marble countertops.  Use cloth dampened with solution, rinse and then dry with a clean cloth.

Replace harsh chemical laden products like Soft Scrub with 1 tablespoon liquid Castile soap combined with 1/3 cup baking soda.

Can also be used to clean your stovetop and vent hood.  Just add a few squirts to 2 cups of hot water.  Cuts through grease perfectly.
