In this blog post, I teach you how to make natural DIY liquid dish soap using only 3 ingredients!
Finding natural dish soap options that are effective and easy-to-make was a long process. I wanted to ensure they:
- contained minimal and accessible ingredients
- didn’t require too much extra effort to clean off extra dirt
I’ve been using this natural DIY liquid dish soap for several months now and have not looked back. For extra dirty and oily dishes, it does require rinsing a second time or another squirt of soap. But it’s a small price to pay to avoid all the synthetic chemicals that are damaging to our health and the environment.
Remember: don’t expect a synthetic chemical result from a natural product or recipe. Going natural may require a bit more elbow grease but the joy and empowerment totally makes up for it.
Watch the video or read on below for the recipe…
