Introduction: Easy Homemade Dish Soap
This is a quick and easy recipe for homemade dish soap that I found on howtodothings.com. You only need three ingredients: 1 cup liquid castile soap (I prefer Dr. Bronner's), 1/4 cup water, and a drop of essential oil.
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
You will need a bottle of liquid castile soap (available online or at health stores), two glass measuring cups, a bottle of your favorite essential oil (I used Bergamot), and an eye dropper or straw. Lastly, you will need a glass or plastic bottle to hold the finished dish soap.
Step 2: Start With the Water
Once you have one of the glass measuring cups filled with 1/4 cup water, pour it in to your empty dish soap bottle.
Step 3: Adding the Castile Soap
Pour 1 cup of liquid castile soap into the other glass measuring cup and then pour this into the dish soap bottle. The mixture should begin bubbling slightly.
Step 4: Adding the Essential Oil
If using an eye dropper, take one drop from the bottle of essential oil and add it to the bottle of dish soap. If using a straw, dip the straw very slightly into the bottle of essential oil and plug the open end with your finger. Make sure to only hold about a drop in the straw, then move it over the bottle of dish soap and release your finger. This will allow the drop of essential oil into your dish soap for a pleasant scent.
Step 5: Shake Your Homemade Dish Soap
Once you have finished the previous steps, hold the bottle cap on tightly and give your homemade dish soap a good shake. This will mix the ingredients and spread the scent of the essential oil throughout the soap. Your homemade dish soap is a safe, healthy product for your kitchen and is now ready for use!
