Making natural dish soap may be simpler than you might think! Below are steps to take to ensure success to make natural dish soap.
Things You'll Need
- 2 cups liquid castile soap
- 1/2 cup water
- a few drops essential oil
- a plastic squeeze bottle
Mix together two cups liquid castile soap with one-half cup warm water. You can pour the soap and water into the squeeze bottle separately and shake the squeeze bottle to mix the two together.
Add a few drops of essential oil. I wouldn't add more than four drops, as the scent of the oil could become over-powering. Lavender and mint are both anti-bacterial, and they smell great together! I often add two drops of lavender oil and two drops of mint oil. You can use any essential oil you choose for scent when making natural dish soap.
After the essential oil is added, mix again. If you are adding ingredients and mixing right in the squeeze bottle, shake the bottle after adding the oil. Be sure to shake the bottle of natural dish soap before each use for proper consistency. Use and store in the same manner as store-bought dish soap.
