Homemade Dish Washing Soap

While we were staying home and not leaving our house, even for groceries, we started to look at other options we could try when we ran out of items.  Early on, we ran out of dish soap.  Here is an easy, natural, dishwashing recipe that we tried and are still currently using!

                                                              HOMEMADE DISH SOAP

1 1/3 cups boiling water.
1/4 cup grated castile bar soap.  I didn't have this on hand so I used Fels Naptha bar soap.
1 Tablespoon washing soda.  You can use a little more if you want a thicker soap.
1/4 cup liquid castile soap.
15-25 drops of essential oil.  This is optional.


Add grated soap to boiling water.  Stir in washing soda and castile soap.  Let mixture cool, stirring occasionally.  Add essential oils if desired.  You can transfer this to a soap dispenser or container of your choice.  If soap is too thick, you can always add a little warm water to thin.  We added ours to a mason jar and just keep it next to our sink.
