make it yourself Mommy Hobbies: liquid dish soap make it yourself home supplies

In my napsack stash
I’ve been wanting to make this for weeks. And the only thing that’s been holding me back from making it is the 40 minute drive to Target to pick up an ingredient. *blurb*
For me, the star of this show is the Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap. It’s a blank canvas and can be used for making your own: shampoo, toothpaste, aftershave, body soap, laundry soap, fruit rinse…seriously. It was worth the $16.99.
heat up 1.5 cups water
My store closet of supplies is growing. I use so many of the same ingredients it’s worth the $9 I paid for an essential oil, or the $3 I paid for super washing soap and to have them sitting, waiting around until I find another handy recipe to use them in.
mix the TB washing soap, half cup Castile, TB vinegar and 1/8 tsp of tea tree together
And the wonderful thing about all these recipes is it doesn’t take but 3-5 minutes to make most of these home supplies. I don’t mind taking 10 minutes out of my day to whip up air freshener, dishwasher detergent, or even some homemade bleach. This particular recipe only took me 3 minutes…worth it!
Pour the hot water in with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Let set until cooled and use with a soap dispenser.
This is such a wonderful little frugal adventure!
