Chookie, I've just made a batch of this.  Misread the directions  :-)) and thought I was making 2 x 2 litres not 2 x 1 litres.  Luckily was not too far into pouring the hot water into the second bottle of mixture so mixed it all back together in my larges tupperware container, blitzed it again and I ended up with 1 full 2 litre bottle plus 1/4 of another one.  As I don't do sink washing very often it will do me.  Mine is a caramel colour ???  I'll shake it before using and will let you know if it goes thick, perhaps not being in a squirty bottle it won't be any trouble to get out and as I have more water in my mixture than yours, perhaps it will be alright.

Chookie, mine goes hard too.  I just give it a shake and it loosens up though.  Because it doesn't form froth and bubbles I thought I'd try some in the dishwasher.  The dishes were all nice and clean but everything had a dullness about it.  I wiped everything over with a tea towel before putting them away (plastic was OK) which bought every item back to normal.  It did leave residue in the bottom of the dishwasher though which I poured very hot water over to dissolve it so I don't think I will use it again in the dishwasher.  I am also going to try it as a washing machine liquid to see what I think of it in there.

Judy thanks for testing it.  There is something in the mix that makes it set up.  Think I will cancel this recipe and start again.

Chookie have you seen this recipe for DIY Dish Drops which CP posted in a list of recipes of home made cleaning mixes?

Judy,   I will give this one a go.  however i am a bit worried about the 'yellow Gel' that she mentions an this is what i am having problems with.  I lot of recipes I looked at had Borax in them so i am avoiding this.

Chookie I am using yours to self- clean the TM bowl.  It doesn't froth up like normal dishwashing liquid so works well.

Have spent all day playing with this stuff.  Made the one off CP's site, DIY dish Drops.   Same problem so just kept adding water.  Instead of making 600mls it made 3 liters and works well,   So then back to my original recipe and added more water.  Now works much better.  I like mine better as it smells nice.  I am also worried that the DIY dish drops from CP may not keep. 
I kept re mixing the gel in the TMX.  Very good for this.
Will amend recipe to say,  pour 1/2 into each of 2 liter bottles and top up with water.  This still may not be enough water.  Will test further, however I have bottles of the '''''cream' every where. ;D ;D ;D ;D
