Ok, time for a “clean” post. Recently, I have discovered castile soap. It’s one of those things I’ve known about for years, and wanted to try, but it was pretty low on the list. Why, I don’t know, considering how much I love clean and natural.

So, having recently read that you can use it on your dogs, I was sold. Yep, that’s pretty much all it takes. Now I have a reason to buy it (other than the 20+ other ideas I read on a Pinterest post). There are two brands out there that seem to be popular – Dr. Brommer’s and Ology. I went with the Ology because it was less expensive and I was already in Walgreen’s feeling impulsive. Ology Castile soap comes in two scents – peppermint and lavender. I was thrilled to see the lavender, because it’s a calming scent and perfect for puggy bath time! A safe, gentle soap for my dog friend plus a natural, happy scent – the cherry on top.

My conclusion? Love it! It rinses cleanly off my Brie – along with a lot of dirt, usually. And leaves her fur soft with a hint of… lavender! I now use it to wash my hands before cleaning my contacts because it gets rid of any lotion or oils. I also use it along with a microfiber cloth to clean my glasses, because it is a gentle enough soap not to strip the coating off the lense. Apparently it can be used to wash dishes, clean carpets, or just about anywhere you’d use liquid soap. I even used it the other day to get a tick off Brie. Castile soap will be in my home from now on. Perhaps, next I will purchase the peppermint to use for cleaning around the house.
