When I first started on our minimal waste journey one of the main things I knew I wanted to tackle was the mountain of cleaning products I use. My great-greatgrandmother didn’t have this many cleaning products, I told myself (she was the author of several Home Economics books back in the day) and she somehow survived. If she could so can I. So I started reading and researching different products I could make on my own using less, and more sustainable, ingredients.
Alas, one of the first things I ran out of was dish soap, and for some reason it was also the most intimidating. I mean this needs to clean the things my family eats off of each day. Our healthy quite literally was dependent on me getting this right.
But y’all, I’ve got to admit, I can be lazy. I was not interested in a massive undertaking involving melting, cooking, and stirring ingredients. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I have been a huge fan of Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap for several years now, so I started looking for recipes that involved it, but then I made another discovery. Dr. Bronner had another product that I had somehow missed all these years-and it’s seriously changed my life, and my cleaning game.
So here it is, my DIY easy-peasy, lazy mom approved liquid dish soap. I hope you enjoy 🙂
1 Cup Distilled Water
1/4 Tbsp White Vinegar
