I use baking soda to wash my dishes or emptied out humanure buckets. The water that sits
in the buckets with baking soda, may I put this baking soda water in the compost pile?

What other safe and natural soaps may I use to clean out my humanure buckets or dishes
and then add to the compost pile?

Mark Contra : I'm on board with Paul W.s play nice rule, so this isn't to be taken as snarky, but with out knowing the ph of your soil and your 'night' soil, I don't think
anyone could answer that ! Obviously you would want to keep that stuff away from acid loving plants like blue berries.

Or did you just mean is it safe for the bacteria in your compost pile/ I think we go back to my original thought ! Not really enough information for a good guess !
