Try This Home Made, Organic, Antibacterial Dish Soap. It’s Easy!
Making your own household items is generally pretty easy, less expensive than buying from the store, and fulfilling. This recipe costs a little more than a dollar to make 32 ounces. Compare that to any commercial dish soap and you’ll see the difference. This recipe is less toxic, so better on you and on nature. You can’t lose! Let’s get to it.
You will need:
- 4 cups of water
- 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin
- 10-20 drops of tea tree oil
- 1/2 cup of grated soap
Grate the bar soap. I like to use Dr. Bronner’s castile soap personally.
In a saucepan, add the grated soap to the water and heat on low to medium heat, bringing to a boil.
Be sure to stir frequently as the soap melts.
Once the soap dissolves into the water, add in the vegetable glycerin.
Allow to cool a bit, then pour into a jar.
After an hour of cooling, add the tea tree oil.
Let the soap sit for 24 hours, stirring it occasionally.
