DIY

You can also make your own natural dishwashing liquid.

Several recipes are available. Here is a rather simple recipe from the site Bren Did. You will need only 4 ingredients:

  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 cup of Liquid Castille Soap
  • 1/3 cup washing soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Vegetable Glycerin (optional)

Ingredients to avoid in products you choose

  • Ammonia (present if the label says “do not use with chlorine bleach” ): irritant and corrosive to the skin, eyes,  respiratory and digestive tract
  • Dyes (coal tar): carcinogen, skin sensitizer, photosensitizer
  • Artificial fragrances: allergens
  • Quaternium 15: irritant, possible carcinogen (by release of formaldehyde)
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: irritant, may cause contact dermatitis
