Making Your Own Laundry and Dish Soap!

Homemade Dish & Laundry Soap

A while ago, I found a recipe on the internet for homemade dish soap. Here it is:

2 cups borax
2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
1/2 cup salt
30 drops lemon essential oil

Mix and store in ziploc bag.

This gets my dishes sparkling clean!
My store-bought detergent was making the dishes come out of the dishwasher cloudy.

  1. hi, do you mean lemon essential oil, or just lemon juice?

  2. Kimberly Hartke says:

    Yes, lemon essential oil, the words are there, but over to the left margin! I just reformatted the post so it is easier to read.

  3. Sache qu’il existe le même type de recette pour la lessive dans le lave-lingE.
    C’est le genre de tips que tu pourras trouver sur ces deux sites : Comment assurer l’entretien régulier de son lave-vaisselle? et Panne de lave-linge dans un appartement en location, que faire ?

  4. Will ascorbic acid work? Is it the same as citric acid? Where would I find citric acid to purchase?

    THANKS! (love your site and your blogs. Thanks for being a voice for healthy living.)

  5. I don’t know about ascorbic acid, but I order my citric acid through my local pharmacy. Does anyone else know about ascorbic acid?

  6. Kimberly, ascorbic acid is a form of vitamin C, the form most often used in supplements. I have not heard of it being used for cleaning.
