Toxin Free Thieves Dish Soap

I believe there was a round of applause when the new Thieves products were introduced!  If you have used the Thieves Household Cleaner and if you love Thieves essential oil, you will more than likely love these products too!  Now, you do not have to make homemade dish soap or hunt the store shelves for the perfect natural one.  Young Living’s Thieves Dish Soap is guaranteed to be pure, all-natural, free of dyes and synthetics.  It contains Thieves, Jade Lemon and Bergamot essential oils as well as other plant-based ingredients.  These all work well together to make all of your dishes sparkly clean!*

However, I’m sure you’re wondering if the Thieves Dish Soap really works, right?  “Hmmm, I’d like to order it, but does it actually work?  No, I mean does it REALLY work?  I’ve tried other natural dish soaps before, and my dishes were still yucky and I had to scrub so much.”

I don’t want you to worry so let me share what I think about it.  I would compare it to the working power of regular dish soap, minus the massive suds.  While this soap makes lots of suds initially, the suds don’t hang around forever.  This seems to be a tough sell for some, for me it was the hardest part to get use to.  However, the trade off you make is worth it.  Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates are the chemicals in dish soaps that make them sudsy.  Those are harsh chemicals many people are trying to avoid and for good reasons.  If you want more suds, you can always add more soap, although it’s certainly not necessary.  This stuff works just like the concentrated soaps – a little goes a really long way – which also makes it an economical choice!  Save even more money on this product by ordering it as a wholesale member through the Essential Rewards program.

In addition to being free of SLS/SLES, Thieves Dish Soap ingredient list also leaves out any dyes, formaldehyde, phosphates and synthetic perfumes, which are common ingredients in your typical dish soap.  People are becoming increasingly aware of what can happen when we are repeatedly exposed to these chemicals over long periods of time, and more and more are trying to avoid them altogether in their household products.

7 Fun Uses for Thieves Dish Soap

1. Jewelry Cleaner: Thieves Dish Soap smells and works wonderful. Why not clean other things with it??  The first thing I noticed when I was using my new Thieves dish soap washing dishes was that my wedding ring took on a new sparkle like it hadn’t seen in awhile. This works amazing on my diamonds! I decided to put one drop on an old soft toothbrush and scrubbed it to renew its sparkling beauty. I love that this cleaner has no harsh chemicals. I was able to throw out my toxic jewelry cleaner I had stored under my sink.
2. Spot Cleaner: This Dish Soap has the consistency of the liquid laundry spot cleaners, so with 3 boys I’ve had plenty of opportunity to try a few drops here and there and have loved the results. If the spots come out of clothing…why not try the carpet, furniture or any other cloth. You may want to spot test an inconspicuous area to be sure.

3. Dishwasher Detergent: I ran out of dishwashing detergent last night so I thought I would try a few drops of Thieves dish soap. Sometimes I add Thieves household cleaner to my dishwasher so I thought it would be fun to add a few drops of the dish soap (about 5) to the detergent compartment. I also like to add vinegar to the rinse aid. The results were clean dishes with sparkling glassware.  You could also add baking soda to compartment and then a few drops of the soap.

4. Tub Cleaning: Cleaning your whirlpool tub by adding a couple small squirts of Thieves dish soap, plus two capfuls of Thieves household cleaner, into jetted bathtub with hot water. Let the jets run for 7-8 minutes, drain the tub, and rinse well. This is a scrub free way to clean and shine up your tub.

5. Leather Protectant: Mix with water and baby oil and just a few drops of the dish soap. Less chemicals again when you are treating your leather or vinyl with a protectant for your furniture or car.
2 c. water
1/2 c. baby oil
6 drops Thieves dish soap

6. Dusting: Dust without the chemical laden sprays on the market, try adding a few drops of dish soap to a damp cloth or wipes. Also try adding to a spray bottle for artificial plants, baskets, decor cleaning then gently wipe down items.

7. Car Wash Solution:  This is one of my favorites.  Add a nice squirt to your bucket of water and scrub the dirt away from your vehicle.
