I'm wondering about those drops, what size bottle are you using? Would it be a quart bottle? And the dish liquid and oil? Maybe to that size bottle, 8-10 drops? How many do you consider a few? I want this to work for me. This sounds really great!! Again, thanks for sharing this idea!

Good questiondonnabking. I should have probably been more precise about the recipe, but I don't usually measure it. Blinking But I would say that to 1 cup of milk, you would add about 3-4 drops each of oil and dish washing liquid, and one drop of vinegar. I have added more than 3 drops before though and have not noticed any problems. I never increase the vinegar though. If you play around with the recipe and come up with a better ratio, I would be very interested in knowing.

Cwhitt, I think it's a great recipe! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! I'm looking forward to trying it. Right now, I'm laid up with a level 2 tear of my MCL ligament in my left knee, desperately trying to avoid surgery on it. In a brace from ankle to hip & on a walker, which I have named Secretariat, lol. I have 3 more weeks like this!
