With four kids in our home, plus two kittens (yes we now also have TWO cats that are just a few months old), there are ALWAYS messes to clean up.

I like to answer a few questions when it comes to our clean up routines:

  1. Is it easy? Easy to mix/easy to use/easy to find/etc.
  2. Can my kids use it? While they don’t have a ton of chores, we all pitch in for clean up and work together, so I like to find products that are safe for my kids to use, sometimes even fun for them to use, and something they have the ability to use.
  3. Does it work? How effective is it? Can it get the job done quickly?
  4. How clean or safe is it for our family?

I know that may seem like a lot of questions, but it’s important because if we have a cleaning product that only I can use (because it’s dangerous/etc), that drastically limits my family’s ability to help clean up after themselves and also… do I really want to be using it if it’s that unsafe?

So, in finding ways to clean up our actual cleaning routine, I always like products that can perform multiple duties and one thing that truly holds up to that is castile soap!

There are SO many uses, from stain treating, to laundry, to creating hand soap and more… but today I’ve narrowed it down and am sharing our THREE FAVORITE CASTILE SOAP RECIPES that pack the most punch in our home, meaning these recipes can get our home sparkling clean!

Plus, one of our top markets to pick up healthy foods and natural products (especially when they have so many great sales), SPROUTS, just started offering their own castile soap and I’ve found it to be SUCH a great price when comparison shopping!

Quick note of caution: Both castile soap and vinegar are powerhouses in a naturally clean home, just DON’T mix them together! While this is not actually a dangerous reaction-inducing mix, it will cancel out the cleansing power of each. Vinegar is an acid and castile soap is a base, so mixing the two just makes them less powerful together. However, using vinegar AFTER you’ve used castile soap is a great idea, and I always love using vinegar for glass, mirrors and windows!
