What this boils down to is that you should be able to use most types of
liquid dish detergent to solubilize the orange oil as these soaps commonly
contain a surfactant or wetting agent. I can?t suggest a specific soap to
try nor the proportions (shouldn?t need much of the dish soap), but probably
the simpler and cheaper the better as many of the higher end products may
contain undesirable additives.
