Instant Liquid Soap Refill comes packed in an eco friendly paper bag. 

Ingredients: Saponified organic coconut oil. That's it!

Castile Soap Uses

Organic Castile Soap has many uses:


Liquid Hand Soap Refill steps

Pick a scent to make hand washing dishes enjoyable

Step 1: Gather your tools

Dilute at Home. It's easy.

A bag of Instant Liquid Soap dilutes into 1 quart (32 oz.) liquid soap in a few minutes

Here's what you will need:

  1. 1 bag of Liquid Soap Refill. There are 5 scents to choose from
  2. 1 soap dispenser bottle
  3. A spoon or chopstick to stir with

Step 2: Just add water

1 bag makes 1 quart (32 oz.) Liquid Soap Refill

  1. Open bag at notch.
  2.  Fill with water to top of label and gently stir. Soap dissolves in 5-15 minutes
  3.  Pour into your soap dispenser.

Once you do this, it will remain a stable, beautiful liquid Castile soap. It's shelf life is unlimited. 

Instant Liquid Soap will not separate, coagulate or go back to being a solid.


Waterless Hand Soap

Take Liquid Hand Soap Refill further and make Waterless Hand Soap.

Waterless Hand Soap has so many uses. We have renamed it Go Soap, since Waterless Hand Soap doesn't translate well into English. It means the soap has been diluted with water, making it very useful in waterless locations. There is enough soap in the solution to be effective, but it is a small enough amount to evaporate.

What is a waterless location?

  • the car
  • a restaurant table
  • the hiking trail
  • a subway or taxi cab or Uber
  • your office desk
  • walking anywhere

You get the idea.

Go Soap (aka Waterless Hand Soap) dilute ratio

We have renamed Waterless Hand Soap to Go Soap.

You have an empty Waterless Hand Soap 2 oz. spray bottle and want to refill it. Make a Go Soap refill. 

Dilute one bag of Instant Liquid Soap into one quart of liquid soap (32 oz.).

Follow the instructions on the package.

Pour 1/2 of the quart of liquid hand soap (16 oz.) into a one gallon container and fill it SLOWLY with water. This makes 1 gallon of Go Soap, aka waterless hand soap, that you use as hand sanitizer replacement and general cleaner.

Refill an empty spray bottle to use on everything. Click here for more uses  

Eco Friendly Packaging Materials

ILS dilute 2This is Instant Liquid Soap bag, filled with water in the diluting process. I have the bag sitting in a bowl as a precaution, since the compostable begins to biodegrade almost immediately.
ILS dilute 1The Instant Liquid Soap bag, filled with water sitting in a bowl. Keep it neat and simple.

These bags are meant to compost. The eco friendly packaging material the bags are made out of are kraft paper lined with plant plastic, which is made out of cane.

Most “compostable packaging" take 12-18 months to begin composting or the packaging simply breaks down into smaller pieces of plastic and doesn’t actually compost at all. . These bags will compost in a good compost pile in 3-4 months. So when you fill the bag with water, not only does the soap begin to turn into liquid soap, the bag will begin its composting process.

The way I dilute the soap is to fill the bag and then I go do something else. Sometimes I’ll come back 3-4 hours later and maybe a 1/2 of a baking teaspoon has seeped into the paper. I leave the bag on my kitchen sink drainboard, or place it in a bowl. It could take 15 minutes or more to dilute if you have a cold house. This is normal. If you want the dilution time to be shorter, next time try warmer water.

It's embarrassing to see other, well established soap companies telling you to make a complete mess, called "soap cream", by mashing up perfectly good bars of soap to make an inferior liquid soap glop that will leave streaks at best and not clean anything. All this for more money than the Liquid Soap Refill.

Or other companies that suggest you need to clean your kitchen dish soap sponge with chemicals and microwave ovens, instead of using their soap. If you need chemicals and microwaves (aka radiation) to clean the sponge, what good is the soap doing on your dishes? Likely not much.

THINK

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $6.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.84 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.

Good soap is cost effective. More
