    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.

    Hi Lee

    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.

    Many thanks

    Hi again

    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 ???
