Use This Instead: Liquid Castile Soap
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.
