    Default Using Dr Bronner's as dish soap

    I am beginning to run out of dish soap (for washing by hand), so I am thinking of turning to dr bronner's castile soap.

    Has anyone have had experiences washing with bronner's? I heard people swear by it, while others complain about the "film" that forms after washing with the soap.

    I just washed mine with castile soap diluted in hot water and they are squeaky when I feel them. So, I am guessing it works?

    I haven't used it for dishes - wouldn't it be kind of pricey?

    I'm a huge fan of Dr. Bronner's for other purposes, though!

    really pricey. here in "hard water houston", i would have to use a lot to get any results.

    ~I used it for about 4 months(a bar) until I gave up and got Palmolive again. The water had to be insanely hot and I had to use a lot to remove all the food bits.
    I only use two tiny bottles of liquid soap a year so it just wasn't worth the extra effort to save those two plastic bottles.
    I didn't use it to save money since I had to pay like $3 for a bar at Target. A year's worth of Palmolive is $2.~

    If it is for green reasons, I'd spend the small bit of extra and go with Method or one of those brands. Although they are double the cost of Dawn, they are still way cheaper than Dr. Bronners. Finding a clean green dish soap is on my list of things to do - I will do some research and let you know what I've found.

    I'm kinda thinking grated Ivory and water, heated up and stirred until smooth, with the addition of a few drops of vegetable glycerin, might be the way to go.
