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.
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?
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
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
