*This homemade dish soap may seem quite watery to begin with, but it will thicken after a few hours. The reason it is important to store this homemade dish soap in a jar for a few hours initially, as well as to stir it occasionally, is because it gets very thick. If you pour it into the squeezeable dish soap bottle right way, after a few hours, you won’t be able to squeeze it out. Don't let it thicken too much before pouring it into your squeezable bottle either. Otherwise, it will take a long time to get it in the bottle (yes I've done this, with a funnel and a wooden spoon, ugh!).
