DIY Liquid Dish Soap

Do you notice even the smallest, most inexpensive products can really add up on your grocery bill? One of those items is liquid dish soap! While it may seem lower in price, we buy it on a regular basis and that can really add up time after time. So what’s the next best option? Why not try making your own dish soap right in your own home? It only takes a few ingredients that you will find in your local grocery store and you can make a ton and save money in the long run. Check out the instructions below to make your own DIY liquid dish soap:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Tablespoons of Borax
  • 1 Tablespoons of Washing Soda
  • 2 1/2 Cups of Hot Water (Boiling is preferable)
  • 1/2 Cup Of Castile Soap
  • 2 Tablespoons Of Vinegar
  • Essential Oils Of Your Choice


  1. In a large bowl mix together washing soda, borax, castile soap and vinegar. Set aside.
  2. In a small pot add water and bring to a rolling boil.  Once the water is boiling, slowly add the mixed ingredients and stir as you go. If you prefer a scent to your dish soap you can add 10-15 drops of your favorite oil now.
  3. Remove from the heat and let it cool completely. Once cooled,  add to your favorite squirt bottle or pump bottle and use as needed!

    What is washing soda?

    • It’s from arm and hammer. It’s not the baking soda but washing soda. And it’s on the laundry isle. I paid $4 for the box. Pretty big size. The box looks a lot like the baking soda box just a lot larger.

  2. Liquid castile soap?

  3. What is the point of adding oil to dish soap.

  4. How could you thicken this recipe? Glycerine? And could lemon juice substitute for vinegar?
