Essential oil evangelist and healthy home guru Willie Tsang, the founder of Way of Will, says that beyond the money-saving aspect, making your own dishwashing remedy will ensure that you're not coming into contact with any harsh chemicals. Plus, there are the bonus benefits of essential oils, which include aromatherapy, as well as disinfectant and antibacterial properties.
Tsang's combination of essential oils, water, and soap create a milder cleaning substitute. Below, he shares his five-ingredient, natural blend.
