Need help with dish liquid. I had a supplier, at a farmer’s market, that refilled glass bottles, with amazing homemade soft soap. When I moved, across country, I bought plenty.
Well, I ran out. While my homemade version is acceptable for washing hands, I’m not completely satisfied with using it for dishes.
What do you do/use?
I can make my own as long as it is fairly simple. I think the last batch has glycerin, shaved Dr Bronner’s bar soap, water and essential oil. I have a lot. But not happy with the results for washing dishes by hand.
Something similar happened to me. I purchased some soap at a farmers market that she was selling as dish soap. When I used it at home, it was great for washing hands, but not so good for washing dishes. I am currently using some old palmolive that I had, but need a good homemade recipe soon!
Regarding dish liquid- my grandma always just used bar soap for doing the dishes. Her favorite was Ivory (because it floats, she said). It does come in a paper wrapper but who knows what ingredients…but maybe just regular Farmer’s Mkt lye soap would work fine? (I’m still using up my Dawn liquid and will have to figure out something else when it runs out since it comes in plastic. The bulk at our co-op is pretty worthless though, so will be interested to see replies to your question here).
