I’ve tried a lot of recipes for dish soap, but this one is the best!

  • 2 cups liquid castille soap (vegetable soap) I like Dr. Bronner’s
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 5 drops Essential oil Lemon, Pine or Lavender work well
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  1. Start by adding 2 cups liquid castille soap

    Then by my opinion is better to add 6 drops of Essential oil now then i`ll add 1/2 water to wash the essential oil.

  2. Add 1 tbsp lemon juice then pour 1/2 vinegar. That`s it.

    Just shake before use.

Recipe Notes

A few things to keep in mind when working with homemade cleaning products...


1) Residue – The first few times you use home cleaning products (especially window cleaner) you may notice some residue. There are two reasons for this. First, there is build-up from your previous cleaner that becomes visible. Second, homemade cleaners require a little extra elbow grease. You will have to work that sponge or rag (hopefully not paper towel) a little more, but it’s worth it.


2) Essential Oils – Although they are natural, they can be quite potent, so make sure to wear gloves when working with Lavender and Tea Tree Oil.
