Here Are 3 Brilliant Ways You Never Knew You Could Use Dish Soap

USE #1: WEED KILLER

It sounds odd, but dish soap is actually a great for making your own DIY weed killer. Don’t buy expensive product when you’ve got the perfect solution for those pesky weeds right on your kitchen counter.

YOU’LL NEED
– 1/2 Tbsp. dish soap
– 2 cups vinegar

Put these two ingredients in a spray bottle and shake it up! Be careful not to spray this deadly mixture on any flowers you WANT to live, because this stuff is a killer.

USE #2: PLAYDOUGH

Play time with the kids just got so much more fun – and so much less expensive! We all know the magnificent bubbles dish soap can make, but now we’re giving those bubbles a twist with this DIY playdough.

YOU’LL NEED
– 3 cups cornstarch
– 1 cup of dish soap

Pour them both in your bowl and mix. When you’ve combined thoroughly, you’ll have homemade playdough for the kids to enjoy! And the clean up is super easy.

USE #3: GEL ICE PACK

Kids will be kids, right? Which means they’re going to go outside, play around, and probably come home with a bruise or two. No ice pack on hand? Well, now you can make one using dish soap for those sudden lumps and bumps.

YOU’LL NEED
– Zip bag
– Dish soap

Fill the bag not quite all the way with dish soap and stick in the freezer for a few hours. When it’s chilled, you’ll have a simple (and free) ice pack to soothe any boo-boo that crosses your path.
