Add your garment, and allow to soak for about 20 minutes. Swirl to release dirt, rinse with clean water and express excess water.
This scent collection is inspired by my love of tea! Each scent is a blend of all natural, pure essential oils that evokes a feeling and a love of my favorite blends of teas and aromatherapy.
Citrus Infusion: This is a delight to the senses with an intoxicating aroma, smooth citrusy notes of orange and tangerine, and soft whispers of lavender. Calming and soothing.
Chai Spice: Warm, invigorating and inviting. Great for holiday gifts and cozy winter accessories.
Lavender Citrus Sage: Fragrant French lavender and sage are herbaceous yet delicate and the citrus and mint pair well with the florals to give a bright, crisp finish.
Lemongrass Garden: Zesty, layered in aromatics: cool earthiness from the rosemary and sage; sweet and uplifting from the floral lemongrass and bergamot; and zesty lime and depth from the touch of patchouli.
Mint: A mellow freshness that is invigorating and bright for anyone.
Plumeria Bouquet: This light floral blend is lovingly inspired by Kristin’s very own tropical backyard garden.
Unscented: Safe for anyone and any thing.

Common Questions about Be So Clean Soap:
Why isn’t Be So Clean a no-rinse product?
Because soap needs to be rinsed off. It is the result of soap reacting with water that releases dirt and oils from soiled anything. We are all accustomed to washing the soap off our hands, our hair, our faces, and our dishes – why do we think our clothing in the sink is any different? A “no-rinse” product simply means that minimal soap residue remains in the fibers. That’s ok, but we prefer to Be So Clean, and rinse out the soap residue along with the dirt.
Does Be So Clean contain lanolin?
No it does not contain lanolin. It is 100% vegetable based, and contains no animal products whatsoever.
Can I take Be So Clean on hiking and camping trips?
Yes, Be So Clean is perfectly safe and biodegradable for washing your hands, your body, your hair, your pets, your clothing and your dishes. It is safe and non-toxic and will effectively clean anything that you care about.
