-1 tablespoon Shredded Bar Soap (castile bar soap, ivory, etc)
-1 tablespoon of white vinegar
-1 tablespoon of Arm&Hammer’s Super Washing Soda
-1/8 teaspoon of tea tree oil (optional)
-1 ½ cup of super hot water
1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, then add the water. Be sure to mix/whisk well until bar soap is melted
2. Allow Mixture to cool on the counter for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
2. Store in any dish soap dispensing bottle and use as you would the commercial brands.
Note: You may choose to naturally increase the anti-bacterial qualities of the soap by adding 1/4 tsp. of lavender or eucalyptus essential oils.

- Baking Soda
- Super Washing Soda
- White Vinegar
- Castile Soap
