FL – that recipe does say ” specifically for dishwashing machines” , not hand washing, which may be what hatter is after?

I haven’t tried this yet..
I read somewhere, that leaving a bar of yellow soap in enough water will soften it, then mix it up to form a gooey slimey mess & then add more water until it becomes a liquid.
Sounds good in theory 🙂
There are plenty of recipes around for liquid soap.. from memory I think even Dan has one here somewhere :whistle:March 2, 2013 at 11:32 pm #531354
Sorry fruitful, but that one’s for dishwashers too!
Here’s a recipe but it requires the use of Dr Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap, which I have never seen available in shops in Australia, you can order it online here:
and here’s the revised recipe which doesn’t use the liquid castile soap:
Liquid Castile soap as far as I am aware is quite difficult and time consuming to make one’s self, but not impossible. Rhonda Jean at Down to Earth was making it herself for a while but she went back to buying detergent a while ago.
Pretty much all the other suggestions are for washing up with soap, and it is just not the same as using detergent, particularly for cutting through grease.
Good luck with your washing up!March 3, 2013 at 2:24 pm #531355
The thing to be aware of is that using soap seems to make things slippery, particularly glassware and crockery, just the stuff you wnat to drop 😉
I haven’t tried that formal though, maybe the vinegar would counteract the slipperyness of the soap…..
