I've been making my own dish soap and laundry soap for a few years and I'm amazed people were convinced to pay big $$ for heavy bottles they have to cart home from the store.

Well, it looks like I'm getting one over on them by buying stuff from Big Vinegar and Consolidated Dish Soap

I should really do that. Can you send recipes some time?

I alvvays enjoy Pseu's show!
Avatar 12:55pm ottovonbqe:

I got them off the internet at some point: Dish soap: 2.5 cups boiling H20, 2 tbls borax, 2 tbls grated soap. mix with fork and stir once an hour or so. Trick is getting it to not be too gloppy once it firms up.
Avatar 12:56pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Back in ancient times we didn't all have the time to make our own fluids.
Avatar 12:56pm ottovonbqe:

lanudry: 2 cups grated soap (I use ivory) 1 cup borax 1 cup washing soda - mix in cuisinart. washing soda can be hard to find.
Avatar 12:57pm Joe B:

Big Vinegar - future band name!
Avatar 12:57pm ottovonbqe:

with the dish soap, you have to use quite a bit more than with store bought, but remember it costs pennies on the dollar.
