Making natural dish soap may be simpler than you think. The ingredients with which to blend your own soap with which to wash dishes are readily available wherever you live. The primary ingredient is an olive oil-based soap.
Things You'll Need
- 2 cups liquid Castile soap
- 1/2 cup water
- Essential oil
- Plastic squeeze bottle
Mix 2 cups of liquid Castile soap with 1/2 cup of warm water. Pour the soap and water into a squeeze bottle separately and shake the bottle gently to mix them.
Add four drops of essential oil of lavender or mint, both of which have antibacterial qualities, or add two drops of each. Alternatively, use any essential oil you choose for fragrance.
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.
