Seven Uses for All-Purpose Soap
All-purpose soaps like the organic hand and body wash we make at Sagestone Botanicals can be used for a lot more than just cleaning skin. Here are seven ways you can use our soap in everyday life:
1. As a gentle, all-purpose cleaner
All-purpose soaps have disinfecting power, whether you are using them on your skin or on your kitchen counters. Just mix a quart cup of all-purpose soap with a quart of warm water, stir well and then spray onto your countertops.
2. Thoroughly washing produce
There is so much on the skin of our produce these days, from dirt to wax to pesticides. All-purpose soap can help get your food nice and clean. Just mix a quarter teaspoon into a bowl of water, then stir. Once your mix is ready, use the bowl to pre-wash your fruits and veggies before rinsing them thoroughly with cold water.
3. Moisturizing hand wash
Our organic soap has oil as its base, so washing your hands with it can help keep your skin moisturized - even when you don’t have time to top off your routine with lotion.
4. Cleaning dishes
Try all-purpose soap for handwashing dishes. Because our products are biodegradable, they are ideal for both disinfecting and cleaning your dishes - and they won’t pollute our waterways.
5. Plant bug spray
It can be hard to find a gentle, natural bug spray for your plants. All-purpose soap is a quick and easy solution. Just mix one tablespoon of soap into a quart of water and spray the solution onto your plants to help get them bug-free.
Shampoo is just soap for your hair. Our all-purpose soap is safe for your scalp and your hair. Plus, having an all-in-one soap/shampoo combo makes holiday packing that much easier!
7. Face wash
You can ditch the expensive face wash in favor of our gentle, organic, all-purpose soap. It is sulfate and paraben free, and has its base in natural oils, so the soap is very gentle on your skin.
