Failure at its finest

The unfortunate reality that for me is that I have given up on making my own dish soap and dishwasher powder. I have tried every combination that I could think of using my base ingredients : Castille soap, baking soda, vinegar, washing soda, and essential oils.

Every combinations has its issues whether it be soap scum, chalky film, no foaming/grease cutting power and clumping. Alas the day has come where I have to admit defeat! Since I do not have an option for unpackaged dish soap here, I must go back to using commercial  products! such a sad day!

The only upside I can think of is that I can buy things in bulk( and have clean dishes again)! Therefore lessen my packaging and expenses. I know this is only a minor set back and it will not deter me from future experiments! I will stay strong and continue forward on my journey towards Zero (or in this case less) waste.

P.S. sorry for the drama 🙂

Until next time…

  1. Hi! did you try the citric acid, baking soda and machine salt (for dishwashers) combo? This works perfect for me. However, I do not know if these items are available packagefree or at least plasticfree in canada…
