CASTILE SOAP FAQ
Does Castile soap get sudsy?
Yes, this soap will suds up just like your traditional dish or hand soap. If it isn't sudsing up, you've probably diluted it too much. Remember, It doesn't need to suds up to be effective!
Can I use the scented soap on my dishes?
Yes, you can add essential oils to your soap dilution solutions and there shouldn’t be any scent left behind. Cannon St. Soap Co. Castile Soap always comes unscented, so adding essential oils is up to you!
Is Castile soap anti-bacterial?
Castile soaps work by attaching to dirt and germs and rinsing them away, leaving behind a clean surface.
Adding tea tree oil, which is a natural antibacterial oil, can help make your solution antibacterial, but please note, tea tree oil is toxic to cats.
Is this soap biodegradable and non-toxic?
Cannon St. Castile Soap is completely biodegradable and non-toxic. Made with simple, age-old ingredients, you can even use pure Castile soap as a vegetable wash (diluted properly). This makes it safe for yourself, your kids, your pets and the planet!
Where can I buy it?
You can find Cannon St. Castile Soap at The Pale Blue Dot (Instore and Online)! Where will you never find it? On Amazon. (sorry, we really felt the need to state that)
What can I mix Castile soap with to create earth-friendly cleaning products?
Castile soap doesn’t need to be mixed with much - typically just water (and some essential oils if you please).
Since it is alkaline, do not mix it with vinegar. You will be left with a filmy mess!
Castile soap and baking soda share a similar pH level, and mixing the two together is completely safe. Use a half and half mixture of Castile and baking soda to create a kicka** soft scrub paste!
Essential oils in Castile soap:
In addition to lye and oil, essential oils can be added to the soap for fragrance and additional cleaning properties. Our Castile Soap comes without any additional essential oils, but you are welcome to add them to your desired ratio.
I’m noticing a film left on glass:
If you notice a film left on glass items after using Castile soap, you can use a diluted vinegar rinse (keep an amber glass spray bottle with vinegar and water near the sink). Do not mix vinegar and Castile soap together in the same solution, you will be left with a curdled mess.
When vinegar – an acid – is mixed with Castile soap – a base – they react together which causes the soap to un-saponify. Meaning the soap is reversed back to its original oil base, leaving you with nothing more than oil.
Instead, use this soap as you normally would to clean, then after (if needed) you can use a vinegar rinse. After washing dishes or cleaning a tub or sink, spray a diluted vinegar spray, and rinse. The vinegar dissolves the soap scum build-up from leftover minerals that have reacted with the Castile soap.
