    Default Homemade Dishwashing Soap using Lye Soap?

    Does any one have a recipe for this... i would hate to have to make a batch of castile soap to make dishwashing soap Takes HOURS not to mention olive oil is expensive anymore.

    make it out of used grease, like in the old days. use french fry grease soap works but smells, well, like used french fry grease.
    I think the cost of the lye and labor would be more than the cost of a bottle of sodium lauryl sulfate detergent, no savings at all, frankly.
