Uses for liquid dr bronner's Castile soap?

So I bought some liquid dr bronner's Castile soap because I read on a blog that it can be diluted and used as dishwasher detergent. Yea well... It didn't work well. It left a sticky thick film on EVERYTHING! I tried combining it with vinegar as the run e agent as suggested. It did no good. I tried adding lemmi-shine to the wash... No good. So I want to find another use for this soap. It's already diluted to 50% if that makes any difference. Could I use it to wash my diapers? We use flats and prefolds and the only thing keeping me from just trying it without asking is the thought of stripping all of them. Any suggestions? Or better ideas for dishwasher detergent?

It's soap you can use for anything. Laundry, the floor, in the shower... I've never had a dishwasher though.

I make liquid laundry detergent with Bronnes, I cook mine down from a bar of soap since it's cheaper, but I'm sure that'll work as well.

Dilute it 20 to 1 if you wash newborns, according to our ND.

 I make my bars into a liquid soap since its cheaper that way and a fun project for dd to help me with:) we use it to clean kitchen counters/floors, in the shower/bath as body wash and shampoo, I wash our clothes with it and use it to bath our dog. also works as a plant spray if your garden /houseplants get infested with creepy crawlies. It has soooo many uses!
