Homemade dish-soap suds

Experimenting  on ways to create homemade dish-soap has finally led to a recipe that works well and that I enjoy.  This particular recipe creates the suds I want to have and does a splendid job of cleaning the dishes of all oils and residues.  This is important for cleaning  the jars that end up in the sink everyday from fermented foods and drinks!  This is the first dish soap that makes cleaning up after dough easy.

There are three main ingredients in this recipe:

  • Water – 1/4 cup
  • Castile Soap – 1 cup
  • Veggie Glycerin – 2 tablespoons
  • Optional:  Essential Oil 10 drops

Due to seasonal sinus stuffiness I added a few drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil drops.

The Glycerin is available in liquid or solid form.  I have a solid form so a small amount was cut to melt over low heat.  Once melted into a liquid the other ingredients where added and mixed.  The last step was to pour this liquid soap into it’s own container until it was time to use it.

In the Greater Victoria Community drop into Borden Mercantile located at 3960 Borden Street to find lanolin and glycerin.
