Day 173: Made Eco-Friendly Dish Washing Soap

Day 173: Made Eco-Friendly Dish Washing Soap

This is a simple one to make. I put one part Dr. Bronner’s, one part vinegar, splash of hydrogen peroxide and a squeeze of fresh lemon in a reused soap bottle and filled the rest with water.

I used this to clean out the dish after I used the coffee grinds to get all of the oil out of it.

In case you couldn’t tell, I enjoy making my own cleaning products to clean the shower, my hands and the mirrors.

Check the Household Products Database from the US Department of Health and Human Services for products to see the possible health effects.

What was your simple green act for the day?

  • Amazing how some of the simplest solutions are also the best for the environment and cost effective too! I'm always amazed at the marketing that goes into new cleaning products that don't work as well yet cost more!

    That's the thing that I'm finding most interesting as well.

    If you like bronners you should check out Ballard Organics. even better than Bronners in my opinion!
  • Mike Lieberman
    Thanks. Don't think I've ever seen them before. Will be on the lookout.

    That's a great formula, I'll try it. I use Bronner's to get stains out of clothes and it works great.
    I also love your coffee grinds idea. I just got back from Target where we got kitchen sponges but there must be a better alternative to using and then just throwing them away.

    I love Dr Bronners. Use it all the time for nearly everything. Instead of sponges, I've been using old t-shirts and toothbrushes to scrub dishes.
