Making Liquid Dish Soap is an easy and thrifty method of keeping a green and clean home. All the things that you need to make your own dish washing liquid can be found at your local store. In the cleaning isle you will find 2 of the 3 ingredients needed, another is in the Juice section.
2 Table Spoon Borax
2 Table Spoon Baking Soda
1 Table Spoon Lemon/Lime Juice
1/2 Hot Water
Add Borax, Baking Soda and Citrus Juice (lemon or lime) to 1/2 Gallon of Hot (not Boiling) water
Shake this solution well and allow to set over night. This liquid will thicken by morning, and make a wonderful low residue free cleaner.
For hard water areas White Vinegar can be added to the liquid enhancer tank to rinse any spots of your glasses.
I find this simple recipe is wonderful for getting my dishes clean without leaving soap residue that can be common with store bought products.
Try making your own, see how much money you can save and still have clean and safe dishes for your family.
