DIY Dish Soap

The funny thing is that most of my frugality comes from the fact that I really just don’t want to walk to the store.

In turn, I end up saving a lot of money with these easy tips – like how to stretch that list bit of dish soap you have and/or make your own entirely!

There are a lot of different “recipes” for this out there – and I shouldn’t even call them recipes – more like “combinations”.

Bottom line, is you just want to make sure you are killing the germs.


Here’s what I use:

  • Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Pure Castile Soap
  • Baking Soda
  • White Vinegar
  • Left over Dish Soap


Mix the Baking Soda and Castile Soap until you get a Paste Like substance


Add in about 1/4 cup of water, or enough water to get to the consistency of “dish soap” (If you make it too watery, just add more baking soda)


Add in 1 cap full of the white vinegar. The mixture will bubble and that is good!


Use a funnel to transfer the soap into the container. (If you don’t have a funnel, you can just drop the ingredients right in the container and then shake it)


And voila! You have dish soap!!
