  • vinegar.

    bleach also will work, just rinse well.

    you can also use regular soap (like hand soap or body wash) just again, rinse well.

    or are you asking about a dish washer? you'd need to go buy something to use in it so that it doesn't foam up and fill the kitchen with foam.

    I say just let the dishes soak and go look for the new bottle.

  • baking soda is a good scrubber, and vinegar is a good sanitizer

  • You can use bar soap to make suds and wash dishes.  To make Real dish soap homemade style see this site.
