DIY Dishwashing soap

“Liquide vaiselle maison”— Another one to add to the list! Gradually I’m transitioning home products to home-made ones, and loving the process.



  • 25g Savon de Marseille (True Marseille soap contains at least 72% of olive oil. Recommended makers: La Corvette, Fer Γ  Cheval, Marius Fabre. Choose either green or black colored — the white or cream colored is based on palm oil or coconut oil)
  • 400 ml hot water
  • Baking soda 2 teaspoons
  • White vinegar 2 teaspoons
  • Sodium carbonate 2 teaspoons
  • Liquid savon noir (black soap) 2 teaspoons
  • Essential oils (lavender, lemon, tea tree) of your choice 10 drops


In a bowl, let the grated soap melt in hot water, then add all ingredients. (A brief pshhhh when combining baking soda & vinegar!) And here you have it!

Again, looking to maybe find a way to thicken the formula, which will also help to lessen the consommation. (When it’s watery, it tends to skirt out a lot, sometimes more necessary!)
