Hello all you helpful gardeners
I have just made a batch of soap with some tallow that I burnt slightly and then did not want to give to the birds. It was quite fortunate, actually, that Gary350 posted abut making soap, which gave me the idea. https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 45&t=55817
The soap does not smell burnt but I messed up the soap anyway so now I am going to rebatch it into various other soaps. The first I would like to do is insecticidal soap.
I gather that the surfactants and detergents in dish soap are not the right thing, even though I actually used some once. What is in the soap you usually buy for spraying? If it is pure soap then this will be perfect. I will add garlic and other oil that I have but as a sticker and insecticide this would be great.
If this is meant to be liquid but I use solid soap dissolved in water that should work right?
