Can You Mix Castile Soap with Vinegar?

Good morning! I hope you all are doing well and maybe getting some sunshine wherever you live! Even if you are at home more than usual at the moment, I hope you can get outside and enjoy the weather, if it’s nice. 😊

Anyway, I’m working on a new post for the blog about DIY dish soap, but while I was trying out a homemade dish soap recipe I found on Pinterest, I made a mistake with my mixture, and that’s what I’m sharing with you today.

The list of ingredients given in the post I found contained Sals Suds, which is something I don’t have on hand. However, I do have a couple bottles of Castile soap… so, even though you are not supposed to mix Castile soap with vinegar (did I mention that the DIY soap called for vinegar, too?) I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

The result? An interesting mixture with a cottage cheese-like component, which I disposed of shortly after making. I hope you can get an idea from the picture of what the consistency was like. Now, I can’t say that this exact thing happens every time vinegar and Castile soap are combined, but in my case, it did not work! (The other ingredient I included was water with On Guard concentrate, so that makes up some of the liquid you see in the photo.)

So, unless you’re willing to sacrifice some Castile soap to experiment, you might want to avoid trying to combine vinegar and Castile soap!

Anyway, I hope you all will have an enjoyable Saturday, and maybe you can go try out your own homemade version of a cleaning product. If you need some inspiration, you can go check out this post that I compiled about DIY cleaners. 😊

Talk to you soon!
