• 1 ½ cup of hot water
• ½ cup chemical free bar soap (Vermont soaps is great)
• tablespoon of white vinegar
Update: To really thicken the soap to be more like store-bought dish soap, add only 1 tablespoon of shredded bar soap
1.Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and then pour in 1 1/2 cup of very hot water. Be sure to whisk/stir this mixture until all ingredients are thoroughly blended (and the bar soap is melted).
2.Allow mixture to cool completely on the counter. Stirring occasionally.
3.Stir in 1/4 white vinegar. Vinegar is acidic and cut grease, adding power to your dish cleanser.
4.Store in any dish soap dispensing bottle and use as you would the commercial brands.
5.For scented soap add your favorite essential oil to your dish soap, a few drops at a time.
6.Pour your homemade dish soap into bottles. Recycle old dish detergent bottles or choose something decorative.
