Written By Lee On May 18, 2012

- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- 4 drops tea tree oil
- 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
Mix together soap, water, lemon, tea tree and vinegar
Pour into squeeze bottle.
Use 1 TBS per wash
2 TBS baking soda can also be sprinkled over dirty dishes to absorb odors
Can you suggest a good liquid soap for this recipe. I’m having difficulties finding just a plain liquid soap. I can find liquid dishwash soap (not suitable for dishwashers) or liquid hand soap at my local organic store.
Liquid Castille soap is good.
I was just about to ask which soap myself then saw the above comment. I used liquid castille soap in the recipe but I am not getting very good cleaning results. Particularly with the glasses and cutlery. Any ideas.
Forgot to ask where you buy distilled vinegar. I used normal white vinegar. Would this be the cause of the poor result. I wouldn’t have thought so ???
