      Hi Ladies
      I hope you can help me. Has anyone tried the recipe
      at the bottom of the post. I made the formula and it
      came out great, it looked great, and smelled great. I
      waited 24hrs before I used it.

      Well lets just say I
      was happy in the beginning because my dishes looked
      clean. well when i took a closer look. i noticed
      there was a white pasty residue on most of my dishes.

      i had
      to rinsed and wipe down almost on my dishes. my
      utensils were not that bad but i did those anyway.
      would adding a rinse agent like jetdry or plain
      vinegar have worked. has anyone used this recipe?

      also i
      noticed one of my plastic measuring spoons i use for
      powdered herbs was not clean it had powdered herb
      residue left on the spoon. i think i’m going back to
      the store brand or am i giving up to soon. any
      feedback would be helpful.

      Homemade natural formula will safely cut through
      grease and sanitize your dishes as well.

      1/2 C. liquid castile soap
      1/2 C. water
      1 tsp.

      fresh lemon juice
      3 drops tea tree extract
      1/4 C. white vinegar

      Combine water and liquid Castile soap. Stir and then
      add lemon juice, tea tree extract, and vinegar. Stir
      until blended evenly and store in a squeeze bottle.

      Use 2 tablespoons per wash in a standard-size

      NOTE: Do not substitute conventional liquid soap for
      the castile soap unless it is a “low sudsing” soap.
      Regular soaps will produce too many suds and overflow
      the dishwasher.
