WARNING: This is not totally homemade .
I found a homemade dish soap that worked great, only problem was no bubbles. I am a big bubbles girl. I know they don't do anything to help clean the dishes. But on those cold days,there is nothing better then sticking your hands into a hot sink full of bubbles.
I tested this dish soap for a week before posting it. I wanted to make sure it would work as well as the store bought. I am happy to say it does.
My own bubbling dish soap
2 cups water
2 tablespoons of moisturizing shampoo ( I used VO5 that I got at the dollar store )
1 tablespoon Borox
1 tablespoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon Vinagar
3 tablespoon Dawn dish soap.Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon. Using a funnel pour into a large empty dish soap bottle .
The original recipe calls for clear shampoo. I used moisturizing shampoo since I like the way it makes my hands feel. I added Dawn to the recipe for my bubbles. You could probably use just one tablespoon of Dawn since it makes so many bubbles.
Using 3 tables spoons of Dawn add 12.4 cents a bottle. Using 2 tablespoon adds 8.2 cents. Without the Dawn your dish soap will run about 9 cents a bottle.With 3 tablespoons of Dawn it's 21.4 cents for 20 fluid ozs of dish soap. I can handle that. Now that the trail period is over I am going to try it with only 2 tablespoon of Dawn since I get so many bubbles.
