Frugal Living~Do It Yourself Dishwasher Soap

Many months ago I found a recipe for do  it yourself dishwasher soap.  I have not bought any dishwasher detergent since.  It is simple to make and only requires 2 ingredients.  The recipe...

  • 1 Cup Borax
  • 1 Cup Washing Soda (NOT baking soda)
Mix together and fill your dishwasher's soap dispenser as you would with store bought detergent. 

As a side note, make sure your rinse aid dispenser is filled with a rinse aid.  The dishes come out very cloudy and filmy if you don't use a rinse aid.  Another frugal tip...use vinegar as a rinse aid.  I haven't bought rinse aid in years!

Have a great day!
