All - Purpose cleaner recipe: :
I have run out of my natural all-purpose cleaner & I can't afford more. However, I have TTO, Dr. Bronner's TTO soap, lavender EO, distilled water & Peppermint EO.
I don't have a recipe. Please help.

Also, anyone want to share a dish soap recipe? We don't have a dishwasher. I use Trader Joe's brand and it costs about 2.50 for a bottle.
Are the no-poo recipes and dish soap recipes really cost-effective?
Thanks, this is great information!
I tried no 'pooing it for the first time today. I just did a basic bs scalp massage with an ACV rinse AND my hair is so silky smooth. I just cannot believe it I am pleasantly surprised. I am hoping it doesn't get too oily too quick though, I usually only wash my hair every 3 to 4 days and would really like to keep it that way.
I also have created a POWDERED LAUNDRY SOAP that I prefer over the liquid due to space saving and effort that goes into it. I also think it cleans better.
1 bar of Fels Naphtha *or your favorite soap* grated into a powder
1 ½ Cup Borax
1 ½ Cup Washing Soda
*optional* 1 Cup Oxyclean (or equivalent)
I use 2 TBS per load (this is a great low suds for front loaders), but for light loads 1 TBS is sufficient. Put White Vinegar in Rinse cycle.
This by far has been the best home made recipe I’ve made.
Here's MY liquid DISHWASHER Soap that I personally really love.
1 ½ Cup Liquid Castile Soap
1 TB. Orange Oil (cuts grease)
1 TB. Lemon or Lime Juice
¾ Cup White Vinegar
1 ½ Cup Water
¾ Cup Borax
¾ Cup Washing Soda
Blend well Water/Borax/Washing Soda, add to Rest of liquids mix well. I keep mine in a pump top bottle, but any kind will work. About 2 TBS per Wash load.
robert~I've used storebought natural dishsoap, notmuch for awhile in my dishwasher and never had a problem myself.
In my dishwasher, I use:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/4 cup sea salt
12 drops lemon EO
1TBS per cup per load. Vinegar in the rinse aid compartment. It's AWESOME!! And we have really, really hard water here in the 'nati.
I just tried no-poo for the first time. Washed with BS, rinsed with ACV. My hair is clean and easy to comb, BUT...my hair is back to graying! (I know, I should just accept it. It's contradictory to try to be "natural," then dye my hair. But I guess I haven't come that far yet.)
