Green Tip Tuesday – Liquid Dishsoap

gttuesdish Green Tip Tuesday   Liquid Dishsoap

I know, I know, you’re thinking “it’s about time she gets back to “Green Tip Tuesdays”

Yes, it is about time…I mean I should try to have SOME standards around here.

Today, I’m going to share my latest find in “Mother Earth News” magazine.

It’s a recipe I’ve been searching for for quite some time now:

Homemade Liquid Dish Soap


  • Liquid Soap
  • 10 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops Rosemary essential oil
  • 4 drops eucalyptus essential oil

1. Fill a clean, 22-ounce plastic squirt bottle with liquid soap (you’ll want to dilute it according to the directions if you’re using a concentrate).

2. Add the essential oils.

Be sure to shake the bottle before each use adding 1 to 2 tablespoons to your dishwater and wash as usual.

They also share recipes for making dishwasher powder, but since we don’t have a dishwasher I won’t be making those. If you’re interested in those recipes though click here to be taken to their site.

While you’re there, take a look around. I LOVE this magazine and am certain you will find lots on their site to love too!

Be Healthy, Be Green!

    This sounds great! I have another trick to make my glassware smell good :) I put one vanilla bean in the cabinet and everything inside starts smelling like vanilla. I use it only for glasses though…
