Aside from vinegar, my favorite is Castile soap, which is very versatile. It's slightly pricey upfront, but it's so concentrated that it goes a long way, so it's worth it in my opinion.
Liquid Hand Soap:
1 C. Filtered Water
3 T. Castile Soap
1 ½ tsp. Vegetable Glycerin (optional)
6-10 drops Tea Tree Oil (Disinfecting)
4-6 drops favorite Essential Oil
**Put in a foam soap dispenser and it works awesome. (Can use a regular dispenser too, but I like the foam better)
megswsu and I may be lost-lost sisters. Vinegar, a bottle of liquid castile, glycerine, and an alcohol or tea tree oil can provide the base for cleaning just about anything...especially if you have a few favorite essential oils around.
My faaaaavorite hand soap is similar to this, just different proportions, and I use vodka instead of tea tree oil in my recipes (I've been constantly pregnant or nursing the past three+ years, so my Three Olives is going to waste). I bought a dozen of these http://www.forsoapmakers.com/large-foam-pump-bottle-clear.html
dispensers and have been quote happy with them.
My two other favorite tips:Dishwasher Detergent
2 parts Borax
2 parts washing soda
1 part LemiShine or CitriShine
1 part Kosher salt
Use one tablespoon per loadGeneral Scouring
Not exactly a recipe, but I keep a large salt shaker filled with baking soda (and some unpopped popcorn to prevent clumping) next to the sink for easy scrubbing of the sink and dishes or freshening of the drain.
Thanks for the tips from everyone - looking forward to reading more!
