Liquid soap for dirty mitts



1-part liquid castile soap (I like Dr Bronners)

10-Parts water

10 drops of Tea tree oil

10 Drops of Lime or peppermint oil


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a repurposed hand pump bottle


I like to make a big jar of it to add to the pump when it runs out - saves time down the track!
