I switched from using regular shampoo to liquid Castile soap a few years ago. It's so much cheaper and leaves my hair feeling much nicer than regular shampoo. I also tried it out on the dogs and it left their hair soft and silky without any perfume. Perfume is a real problem for my sensitive little Ginger.
Today I found this recipe for a nice green automatic dishwasher detergent made with Castille soap.
1/2 cup liquid castile soap
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 drops tea tree oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
Stir all ingredients together until blended. Store in a squirt top bottle. Use 2 tablespoons per load of dishes, shake well before use.
