Buying Homemade Cleaner Ingredients

I need to buy several products to make my own cleaning products. I am looking for sodium carbonate and liquid soap. The soap must be a vegetable oil based soap such as olive oil or sweet almond as an ingredient. Anyone know where I can buy them?

Sodium carbonate is washing soda. This should be at your supermarket or drugstore in the laundry aisle. Also the market should have any natural dish soaps which are all mostly vegetable based and be suitable for cleaning recipes. I think most of them are coconut oil based.

If you have a natural health market or a Target with a natural cosmetic section, look for Dr. Bronner's Castile soap....which is vegetable based. This soap can be used on anything! It can be used on yourself, to wash your car, to clean your floors. This would be suitable for mixing your own cleansers too. They come in different essential oil scents or unscented.
