I do a lot of dishes and when I say a lot I mean I pretty much have to do them every day. Frequently I do more than one load a day. Dish-washing detergent is another one of those extra expenses I've just been living with.
Having long-since switched to an ecologically safe brand I could at least take solace in that fact. Not having to run out and buy more whenever I run out would be even nicer though.
I've tried other pins about making your own dish-washing detergent and have so far been left feeling incredibly unimpressed. This one is supposed to gel - a trait I found promising.
Today's pintest comes via this pin and the info found here.
Bring 8 cups of water to boil.
Pour cooled liquid into container of your choice.
I decided this may be one of those times where I was best off employing the use of my handy dandy immersion blender. I was really worried it was too late for this batch and that I would have to just try this again and use the immersion blender from the get go.
My first wash with the newly blended dish-washing detergent and a vinegar chaser produce sparkling clean dishes. My second attempt without the vinegar chaser left me with filmy dishes that I felt needed to be washed again.
Try, try again - I tried one more time but this time again with the vinegar in the jet dry again.
