Sounds like there is a need for some glycerine based soap!
Yeah would be interesting if someone came up with a recipe for biodiesel/glycerin dish washer soap. I have made some liquid soap a couple of times but I handwash my dishes.
Several people have successfully used biodiesel glycerine soap in automatic dishwashers.
I think the first to play around with it was Graham Laming. He used 7 gr of bar soap shredded into the soap holder. Others have since used the liquid soap directly in varying amounts.
I don't have a dishwasher except for the one in the mirror, so mine are done using a flannel rather than putting the soap directly into the water. Works great.
** Biodiesel Glycerine Soap - The Guide
- on 5 continents helping people make & sell soap from the Biodiesel Glycerine.
Currently, Im just using glycerine that was demethed to 190-200F, mixing in 1/3 water, and using that as a hand cleaner and 50/50 laundry detergent. KOH based
Are there any hazards using it as I do as a dishawashing soap> Hazards as in residual methanol at my temps?
If your dishes are dry, and free of soap residue, then you will not have methanol on them.
After you've successfully washed and dried your wine glasses, go ahead and pour yourself a glass of wine that the FDA allows up to 0.1% methanol. I.E. Up to about 1 ml methanol per liter of wine.
I'm trying to make sense of the Washington law.
Certainly there are a number of large reservoirs in Washington, and on the Washington/Oregon boarder. Other than those, I'm wondering how much waste water actually makes its way into Washington lakes.
Most of the lakes where I have gone camping are high-mountain lakes, and do not receive any municipal treated water, nor even runoff from septic systems.
Since Algae likes phosphates... and the dream of biodiesel production is high algae growth... perhaps the answer is not restricting the phosphates in soap, but rather trying to grow more algae in the sewer treatment plants and making more biodiesel.
I suppose the usage of dishwasher soap adds up. But, I had thought the main source of phosphates in "runoff" was from fertilizer.
