Some time ago I made some dish washing tabs, but everyone except me refused to use them. I am trying again with a liquid version. After watching a video that featured this recipe, I decided to make a liquid using most of the ingredients, but slightly different proportions. My recipe is below;
Dissolve 1 cake of soap in 1 litre of hot water.
Store this liquid in a sealed bottle for future batches. Now mix;
2/3 cup soap liquid
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tblspn bicarbonate of soda
1 tblspn washing soda
The mixture will froth, but subsides quickly. When it has finished frothing, store it in a sealable bottle. This mixture is used at a rate of 1/4 cup per sink full of water.
So far everyone is using the liquid. I am getting grumbles about the low froth, but it works to clean the dishes, except that it doesn’t remove the oil on baking trays very well. Using an extra splash of the soap on the trays solves that problem though.
