Thanks in advance!

Homemade Soap for Handwashing Dishes?

If you have powdered clothes detergent, this might be a suitable substitute for handwashing dishes. In the case of very greasy pots and pans, or dishes with baked-on stuff, soaking them in very hot water will help remove the deposits before putting them in the detergent water. Adding vinegar to the wash water might also be useful. Make sure that you rinse the dishes well, to remove "additives" that might be present in the clothes soap, but are not normally found in dish soap. (04/13/2005)

I would think a little cheap shampoo would work in a pinch. (04/13/2005)

When I was little there was no such thing as dishwashing liquid. We used clothes washing powder. Cheer, Tide And Fab did it all! (04/13/2005)

Use a little grated soap in hot water about 1 Tbsp. and rinse dishes in clean water with 1/4 cup of vinegar added, (this is not neccessary if you dry your dishes straight away) done it heaps of times and works great. (04/23/2005)

Using Detergent and shampoo or whatever is definitely not good for your digestive system. With all the chemicals in it, you may end up paying more for all the medical bill. The best is grinded/powder charcoal or ash. Not only it removes the grease but it also polishes as well. Best of all, it is cheap,safe and enviroment friendly. (06/03/2005)

This is something that is probably cheaper to buy than to make. (11/21/2005)

This inexpensive soap does not suds up very much, but it cleans so well! Use with hot water. Do not use it in automatic dishwashers.

  • 1/4 cup soap flakes
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/4 cup glycerin
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon essential oil

  1. In bowl combine soap flakes and water and stir until the soap is dissolved. Cool to luke warm.
  2. Stir in the glycerin and the essential oil, leave to cool. AS it cools it will form a loose gel. Stir with a fork and break up the gel and then pour into a narrow-necked bottle. An old shampoo bottle makes an excellent container.
  3. To use, squirt 3 teaspoonfuls into hot running water.

Homemade Hand Dishwashing Liquid

Ok, I know this sounds a little extreme but when I ran out I used Gain Powder laundry detergent and some bleach... And then boiled some water to rinse them in!! Works great, so great in fact about one a month I wash all the dishes in it again.. It doesn't leave water marks on your glasses and it takes away a LOT of the baked on stuff and the stuff that can get in crevices of your forks and things like that.. And it kills all germs.. Just remember to rinse the dishes really well in extremely hot water.. (03/21/2007)

A bit of borax in hot water works very well. It also dries leaving minimal water spots :) (02/07/2008)
