Homemade Dish Detergent?
Does anyone know how to make an effective homemade dish detergent?
My DH is allergic to at least one ingredient in just about everything commercially made. We had one brand that worked, but they apparently changed their formula and now he's reacting badly and I have to find a safe solution.
I just tried this recipe that I found online:
-1 1/2 cup of hot water
-1/2 cup castile soap (I usually use Dr. Bronner's baby mild liquid soap, but feel free to use any scent just be sure to adjust/omit essential oils accordingly. You may want to use a variety that is already scented for a more frugal option.)
-1 tablespoon of white vinegar
-1 tablespoon of Arm&Hammer's Super Washing Soda (used to thicken the soap)
And it just doesn't work for me. Didn't cut through grease at all.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
