I think I'm digressing....
This blog is supposed to be about homemade dish detergent.
This is the one thing I've not used because I just couldn't find a recipe that didn't turn all gooey on me. My liquid hand soap turned out ok in the beginning, but when I tried to refill my dispenser, the glob in the jar was one long continuous stretch of gooey goo that looked like something an alien had left behind.
I'm not sure who posted this link on Facebook earlier this week, but I liked the sound of it and I especially liked the scientific explanation as to why you don't mix vinegar and castile soap.
I'm just posting her link for you to check it out for yourself. The only thing I added was some green food coloring because I do love all things green and my mason jar dispenser is clear and I always buy green detergent....and it's pretty and green.
Oh...be extra careful handling the jar, if you get soap on the outside, that jar gets awfully slippery. I spilled over half my detergent and had to make another batch. Thankfully, I spilled it in the sink which was filled with dirty dishes, so no big loss....lots of suds though.
Thanks to Jerica over at Sustain, Create and Flow for this great recipe.
