我們上星期到過了芝加哥的綠色節 (Green Festival)學到了很多綠色生活的方法，恰巧昨晚看了Epic，故事其中的名句﹕ "Many Leaves. One Tree" 讓我覺得我們和大自然的關係更接近。今天，我決定立刻自製天然的洗潔精，減少吃進化學物和生產廢物。
We went to the Green Festival in Chicago last week and we loved it. We learned many ways to lead a green life. Incidentally, we watched Epic last night and we were really inspired by the concept "Many Leaves. One Tree." We are all interconnected and we need to learn to live sustainable manner. I decided to wait no more (or procrastinate no more). I made my first homemade dish soap with a few ingredients this afternoon within 5 minutes.

白醋/ 檸檬汁 1 湯匙 (White Vinegar 1 tbsp)/ Lemon Juice 1 tbsp

Skip tea tree oil if you don't have it handy at home or you dislike the smell of it.
Clean a used bottle with water. Rinse it well. I used a glass bottle from Kevita. I removed the label around the bottle without using much energy. It was easily peeled. You can use any kind of bottle as long as you find it easy to use.
Pour liquid castile soup into the emptied bottle. [1 part of soap, 2 parts of water]
Add in vinegar/lemon juice and 10 drops of tea tree oil. Its basically done.
|完成。That is it! Our first homemade natural dish soap!|
This is one simple efficient recipe. Effectiveness? Tell me what you think. We are still in the process of experimenting with this.
