Natural Liquid Dish Soap

Save the plastic waste and make your own liquid dish soap in a reusable container (I love it in a dark amber dispenser!)


  • 2 cups just-boiled water
  • 1 Tbs washing soda
  • 1 Tbs Borax
  • 2 Tbs vinegar (I use white distilled)
  • ½ cup liquid castile soap (or grated solid soap)
  • Optional: 10 drops essential oils (I like lavender, rosemary, orange, lemon or a combination of them)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Soap dispenser/container


  1. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly with a whisk or fork.
  3. Allow to cool to room temperature before transferring to dispenser. It will become more viscous as it cools.
