How To Make Your Own Liquid Dish Washing Soap

As I learn more and more about the befits of using essential oils, I am slowly learning to make my own household cleaners. Today, I just finished my big bottle of environmental dish soap (which I purchased from Costco), and thought I’d look for a liquid dish soap recipe I can make myself. And I found a really easy recipe I can’t wait to try.

  1. I’m on the hunt for glass bottles. Whether they’re spray bottles or pump bottles. Does anyone have any good ideas on where they feel the best place to buy them are? πŸ™‚

  2. I just tried making this and it was rather like making ricotta cheese! It clumped up and I couldn’t get it to mix so I used my stick blender to help it a bit. Ended up thick like beaten egg whites but heavier. Also very greasy. Huh. Obviously, something went wrong!

  3. MaryEllen, I’ve been making this for more than 5 months and it always comes out perfect. I start with the distilled water: I microwave it for 30 seconds, then add the kosher salt and mix until it dissolves, and then I add a teaspoon of lemon juice. In a separate container, I measure the vinegar and Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds, then combine the 2, and add the essential oil. I mix gently and then transfer to my dish-washing container. I hope you don’t give up: try it again and see if it works πŸ™‚
