Castile soap is one of the best examples of "simple is better." The versatile soap is traditionally made from nourishing oils like coconut or olive oil, and today’s varieties pass the Environmental Working Group's tests with flying colors.
You can use castile soap to clean just about anything that can be washed with water—but it's only effective if you use it the right way. Stop making these mistakes to get the most out of the iconic cleaner and prevent damage.
