Dish wash liquid becomes cloudy and precipitate.

I have done many experiments to make dish wash. 
But it becomes cloudy and precipitate settled down after 2 or 3 days.
I am using
Water 76 %
NaOH 2.8 % prior mixed in water. 
LABSA  19.2 % 
pH adjusted b/w 5 -7
Colour green 
Lemon fragrance. 

Plz guide me its solution.?
Thanking you in Anticipation.

    It sounds like a problem with the solubility of the neutralised LABSA.

    Try replacing some of the NaOH with TEA, as the solubility of the TEA salt of LABSA is higher than the sodium salt.

    Very high percentage of LABSA . Use below 8% , add 4 % SLES , CAPB ; CDEA . Follow the dissolve rule . 
  • LBSA  % TOO MUCH HIGH 
    AND WHAT IS THE PH OF FINAL PRODUCT

    Add SXS to increase solubility of Labsa salt in water if you really need such high %.

    pH is b/w 5-7 neutralized with caustic soda solution.

    High percentage LABSA will surely become cloudy.

    You'd need to both reduce LABSA and add some SLES, CAPB, CDEA, alcohol or propylene glycol to rise its cloud point (the temperature at which it becomes cloudy).

    P.S.
    Read the study quoted in this post and you'll see why

    By the way, can you try to replicate the formula they suggested to see if it works for you?
    It is: 10% LABSA, 2% SLES, 2% CAPB. All of them in an active basis.
