One day I was discussing with a friend about how difficult and time consuming it can be to clean the soap scum off of bath tubs and shower stalls. Another person who was about to go to lunch with us came over to me. She said, “I couldn’t help overhearing what you were saying about soap scum and I just wanted to share with you a great product that does not leave soap scum on your tubs, shower or you!”
She discussed Miracle Soap II. It is a concentrate so it goes a long way. I started out using it for just bathing and she is right! It leaves no soap scum. No heavy cleaning in the bath tubs or showers anymore! More importantly, though, there is no residuals left on my skin either. There are no harsh chemicals to ingest or absorb so it’s much healthier for us, too.
I now use Miracle Soap II for just about all of my cleaning needs especially after I found I needed to detox chemicals and popular cleaners I was using were very toxic. I threw away all of my harsh cleaners when the pain in my body was at its worst. I will have another post that covers other natural products that I use for cleaning but Miracle Soap II is the one we use most extensively now and it deserves its own post. For disinfecting, I use other natural products that I’ll share later. (The photo features the one we currently have that is half empty from use.)
I use it in the kitchen for cleaning vegetables, washing dishes, mopping the floor and cleaning off counters and tables. It is best used in a “foam” dispenser. It can be very hard to find foam dispensers that last very long. The springs inside them seem to break and wear out. I found a distributor of only foam dispensers and they still didn’t last very long. The best that I’ve found for now are some products I discovered when they were on sale at Target. The name is “Method.” I especially like the container for the dish soap (16 fluid ounces) pictured on the left.
There is a smaller one (10 fluid ounces) perfect for hand dispensing in the bathrooms pictured to the right.
I empty out the Method soap and use only the containers.
We buy it by the gallon. There is a regular Miracle II Soap and Miracle II Moisturizing Soap. I use the one with moisturizers for the shower and for my hand washing. My husband has skin that is not as dry as mine so he uses the regular Miracle II Soap for everything.
It is a concentrate so I pour water into the foam dispensers and then add soap till the water begins to turn color (about 1 tablespoon for the smaller foam dispensers and about 2 or 3 tablespoons for the dish washing foam dispenser). My husband likes it stronger so uses more than me. You can find the amount that works well for you.
I don’t use it in the dishwasher but I do using it for hand washing my dishes. I also haven’t switched using it for laundry although the Web site says it can also be used for laundry. I use Seventh Generation brand powder for the dishwasher and Seventh Generation’s liquid Free & Clear for our laundry.
I usually phone in my order for Miracle Soap at 888-895-7627.
The last thing I switched out was my shampoo. I was afraid it would leave my hair too dry so, I’ve added an organic oil treatment after washing and drying my hair and right before I use my “straightening” iron. The directions say to work it into your hair as it’s damp but this doesn’t seem to work as well for me. If you want to try it by working it into your hair as its damp — this may work for you. This product is organic. It’s called “Derm Organic Leave-in Treatment” that repairs, protects and leaves a shine. You can purchase it from this product link on Amazon.com.
