Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup liquid Castile soap
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 drops tea tree extract
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar

Directions:

Combine water and liquid Castile soap. Stir and then add lemon juice, tea tree extract, and vinegar. Stir until blended evenly and store in a squeeze bottle.

Use 2 tablespoons per wash in a standard-size dishwasher.

Note: Do not substitute conventional liquid soap for the Castile soap unless it is a "low sudsing" soap. Regular soaps will produce too many suds and overflow the dishwasher.

Dishwashing Liquid

To a 22 oz. container of liquid Castile soap, add:

  • 10 drops lemon
  • 8 drops orange
  • 20 drops grapefruit

I hope that you love these like I do! Have a wonderful 2011 everyone!

I'm about to try the vinegar portion of this to help get rid of the white film on some glasses. If that doesn't work, I'll get more intense with a homemade recipe! Lots of work, though.
