Common Soapwort has historically been used for cleaning. A lathery liquid that has the ability to dissolve fats or grease can be procured by boiling the leaves or roots in water. Leaves are chopped, boiled, and strained; the liquid can then be used as soap.  It is a gentle soap, and museums today are still using it to clean delicate and unique fabrics.
