What is liquid Castile Soap?
This is a pure soap that is made from olive oil, water & lye (caustic soda). Depending on the type of lye you can make liquid or hard soap.
Do I need to use distilled water?
Only if you are going to make a large batch that won't be used right away, or your tap water is very hard. Not only should it be free from any contaminates but it has less hard minerals that react with soap. For a small batch that will be used within 4-6 weeks normal tap/boiled water should be fine.
My top oils are Eucalyptus, Lemon, Orange, Lemongrass, Lavender, Tea Tree but the choice is yours & the list is endless when it comes to blends.
This spray is safe for all surfaces but when cleaning windows & glass it may leave streaks, in this case you’re best off using the Window & Bath Spray which is basically undiluted vinegar.
