“& Other Spells” – DIY Dish Soap

I have no idea what is going on…

I decided to start a new section for the channel. I mean, this is Kitchen Witchery & Other Spells. But, I haven’t really done “& Other Spells.” So, I’m going to start. Rather than watch me be an idiot with cooking, you can watch me be an idiot with other things!

I’m kidding. I’m not an idiot, but I am a goof. And that’s really what this channel’s about: Having fun, being yourself, and a little bit about cooking and making things. So, that’s why I decided to do a video on how to make Dish Soap.

I will admit that my dish soap did not thicken to the level I would like, and especially not to the level Cameraman Ken would like. I added another T of super washing soda, but I hadn’t gotten my mixture hot enough to dissolve it. I ended up removing about 1/2 T of the clumped washing soda before I realized I was using a mason jar and could just…put it in the microwave.

One minute in the mic on high will make the contents hot enough to stir in the super washing soda. You’ll need to let it sit for 24 hours and check it again. If it’s still not thick enough, repeat the process by heating it in the microwave and adding the super washing soda. Once it reaches the consistency you want, then you can add your essential oils (40 drops, total).

Let me know what other things you’d like to learn how to make. I can teach you about the “magical” properties of essential oils for you to enchant household cleaners; I can teach you to make other types of household cleaners; what other things would you like to know?

I am also planning to do two videos per Sabbat. Afterall, I am a Pagan-Christian, so I do celebrate certain Sabbats. I do not have a problem, however, doing videos for the ones I don’t personally celebrate because our paths are all different. A witchling may be seeking guidance and I can provide an option for them. The next Sabbat is Lughnasadh on August 1. I will have two videos specifically four Lughnasadh releasing July 28 & 30. The first video is likely to be a Lughnasadh-specific food dish; the second, I haven’t decided. It could be a craft, it could be decorating ideas, it could be a ritual–I don’t know! What would YOU like to see?
