How to Make Dishwashing Soap

Once again, there is a another cool thing to make at home.  This Castile stuff is like gold I tell you!

This time it’s using the bar form. I have yet to try this, as I have a lot of dawn soap to use up first.  I do believe I’ll be making this when it comes time for me to purchase a refill. 😉

Has anyone made homemade dish soap before? If so, how was it?

Things You’ll Need:

  • Castile bar soap
  • Grater
  • 2 to 3 cups of hot water
  • 1/2 cup of lemon juice
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Potato masher
  • Plastic squeeze bottles
  • Add enough hot water to cover the soap.


  1. Grate 2 cups of Castile bar soap into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add enough hot water to cover the soap.
  3. Let the mixture stand overnight to soften the soap
  4. Mash the mixture together until smooth.
  5. Add enough hot water to dilute the mixture to a consistency that can be poured into the squeeze bottle.
  6. Blend the mixture completely.
  7. Pour the mixture into squeeze bottles.
  8. Shake before each use.

You can also add any essential oil you like to the mix for a smell you enjoy.

      haha I understand. 😉 Lately, I’ve been into making stuff. I’m on a role, but I used to be more of the “buying my own” kind. :)

    Sounds like another good recipe. I don’t know if I could give up my dawn soap, though. It is a great stain remover too. :O) Let me know how you like it when you try it. :O)
